Eragon was one of the most successful characters in fantasy literature to date, but he’s also a man without a name who is a symbol for many facets of life.
After reading Eragon, you might be asking yourself “Where’s my own pseudonym?”. You can answer this question with a simple “no idea”, as you will have to rely on your imaginations to name the character. There is no doubt that Eragon would have been a man of action, but as a character, his name is fitting for the hero of many stories about friendship and bravery.
Eragon, I do know a Dragon name and I do know a Dragon name. If you were to take the form of a dragon, then your name would be a combination of many things. A good example would be from a person named “Gadara” which is in fact a combination made up of several things, including Arial, Garish and Garuda, etc. You can choose to name your character based on any of these or any other combination you like.
I wanted a name that would allow for some variety in the Dragon’s appearance, yet be suitable for the character’s name, to avoid any confusion or conflict. I wanted to incorporate something similar to the sound of “Garuda” or “Lamor” (the names of the Dragon’s servants), or perhaps the name would be something like Ivar which is derived from Ivar the immortal.
When I was writing the dragon name, I just wrote the name Garuda. I then read the story and wrote down anything that could be thought of when the idea was written down, then just added a few things from conversations around the family. So, what I did was I had my character named Garuda but then I read the story and I made all sorts of notes based on how my character and I actually looked on different stages of life.
