    What if it really is "Steve Bubbles", but all the historians, record keepers, and everyone else prefer not to mention this, because all the dragons are named in some rather hard to pronounce outlandish fashion?
    Honestly, who of you would like to admit, that you all were driven from your ancestral homelands by the Elder Dragon, the horrible threat, that cannot be overcome, by STEVE BUBBLES?!

    Lmao :D

    Maybe so. Just they way I read it, if you hiss a bit and say it slowly it sounds like snake language... which would be appropriate for a dragon

    I'd rather keep going.. wherever the wind takes us

    I agree.

    Personally I don't think they will name it. If the name is lost to history, unless it comes up to introduce itself with a wave and a handshake, then I suspect if we ever encounter it, they will use "Deep Sea Dragon" or equivalent.

    If they do name it, I hope they use it as a good way of digging further back into older rises. We've touched upon it a little with the Mursaat tablets and a few other bits, but I think if we could somehow uncover something much older than previously discovered, then that could be really intriguing

    If its minions speak like 4 out of 5 other dragons' minions, then it will get named by its forces if nothing else.

    And getting more details on the prior rise would be nice, especially to iron out the inconsistencies (was it 10,000 or 3,000 years ago? ANET YOU KEEP GOING BACK AND FORTH!).

    Come to think about it, the names all originate from the Dragons themselves. So if it was written down, a race would have previously discovered before from the Dragon/Minions. I wonder, rather than just use speech, we will "sense" it somehow from them - that would be more in keeping with a horror/eldritch style if they choose to use that theme for the Dragon.

    If I remeber well, the name "Mordremoth" simply got to us from the mere presence of the dragon. I believe their names are just felt, known in the subconscious mind even before anyone actually write them.

    Scylla is just perfect, IMO.

    I know Anet take a lot of inspiration from mythology and folk legend for Tyria but there arn't a lot of sea monsters with specific names beginning with S. Scylla is a possible choice or a variation/extension as she had multiple heads and our deep sea friend is shown to be hydra like in his concept art but, the she is the pesky bit. All Elder Dragons so far seem to have a very male presence, they don't reproduce in the traditional sense... apart from Mordremoth who may have birthed the pale trees from seeds but that's a whole other conversation. Then there are Selkies and Sirens, also female creatures known for their trickery and murder mainly through leading young men astray. So I don't think the obvious options are very likely.
    If we also look for clues in some other dragon names, it's possible his name will come from meaning or power.
    Mordremoth- It's quite close to Mordred from the Arthurian legends but I don't see much of a connection there, however in French Mordre can mean to bite or
    to encroach or to be tricked. Considering he is the dragon of the mind this fits quite nicely.
    Primordus- Obviously he is the first to awaken and the oldest so, primordial, first.
    Jormag- Might be taken from Jörmungandr which means huge monster or beast, although he was also a sea serpent so maybe that would have been better for Steve.

    I quite like the name Saegrund, in old english meaning the bottom of the sea.
    But who knows, the historian even says she thinks the letter is incorrect!

    Scylla. Seems obvious now when I think about it.

    No longer posting or playing.

  • The sea is often used in art to represent the unknown and the feared, so keeping the name unknown would stick to the theme. But ANet doesn’t quite like sticking to the normal (their takes on common tropes and mechanics seems to work out better than others, like the mounts system and waypoints), so they may reveal it

  • Seadragon, of course.

    It's name is obviously Scylla, and it's deep sea champion Charybdis.

    Yeah, I think this will be the name or a variation of this. It would be nice for a change if this particular Elder Dragon was predominantly female in gender for some variety. Also in terms of minions names, I think the Submerged kinda sounds neat.

    I think what had happened here was a missing piece of plot, which was included in the alternate scenario that was suppose to occur at the Season 1 with the death of Scarlet. Season 1 had an alternate ending in which Marjory died and Scarlet revealed that she served Mordremoth. There is also additional dialogue talking about Mordremoth in the Season 1 ending instance. So if Scarlet revealed this information and then they talk more about Mordremoth in the dead end bar, it makes more sense how we jumped to the conclusion that Mordremoth was behind the attacks in Season 2 as they had a much better reveal at the end of Season 1. I suspect that they forgot about this detail, hence why the scene doesn’t make sense.

    It is not know. All we know is he initial. "S".
    A few devs favor the name "Selbbub" some people made up after learning it starts with S, not wanting to give up "Bubbles", they simply reversed it as it ended with S.

    If we look at the names of the other dragons, they appear to follow different patterns:

    • Jormag is clearly reminiscent of "Jörmungandr", and goes close to the norse theme of the norn.
    • Kralkatorrik seems to be more about the feeling of the sound. Lightning crackle, cracks in crystals.
    • Mordremoth's name could have been inspired by "Modredus" and "Mordred".
    • Primordus's name reminds of "Primordial", as in "primordial rock".
    • Zhaitan's name sounds like a mix of "Satan" and "Zombie", but I suspect that was just a coincidence.
      But all the names match the vibe of each dragon we've seen.

    Seeing how silent, secrete and secluded "S" is, the name has to have quite some esses.
    Sssss
    Then let's give it a feel of tentacles and wobbly water, since all anyone has ever seen from S was minions that seemed to be made out of water itself, and that looked like tentacles. So we need some undulating and gobbling sounds here. Ups and downs for the vowels, starting with a low, dark vowel as S would come from below.

    Ok. I give up. Forget all of that. Something tells me that "S" a she, and that she's called "Señor Bubbles", like a female cat being called "Mr Snookums" for a long time but then the family realizes it was a she, but calling a female cat "Mr" was kind of cure and they have been calling her that for a long time, so it stuck.
    It's the only logical possibility. left.

    "Señor Bubbles" it is. Take it to the print.

    Yeah this is a strange one, Mordremoth through Heart of Thorns is described as an it rather then a male for example and yet Kralkatorrik is being described as male, which leaves me to believe that they have a gender of some sort.

    : That crystal monster—he's HUNTING her!

    : Kralkatorrik beat back Glint's army. Now he's gorging on the Domain of the Lost.

    There is also an event that references Jormag as male as well.

    I’ll search and see if I can find any other gender specific references for the dragons.

    It's more that Tyrians don't really know their gender/sex or if they have one. For all we know, Zhaitan and Primordus are female. And Jormag. Heck, Mordremoth could be too, tbh.

    Kralkatorrik is the only one who's gender has been attributed, though Kralkatorrik is called equally he and it.

    (Clarification: IIRC Jormag's gender is also attributed, as male, by Sons of Svanir but they're rather sexist so not a good source).

    Though it has been suggested that dragons are overall sexless and reproduce asexually, which would mean none of them - even Glint, Aurene, and Vlast - have a biological sex, but attribute themselves more as male or female as other races see. It would also mean there is no father for Vlast/Aurene, and no mother for Glint (though I still fancy the idea that Primordus could be Glint's mother due to the brief similarity in their GW1 models and Primordus' apparent obsession with Glint's children).

    it's not uncommon to refer to androgynous things or things with unknown genders as he. jormag is kinda a special case since the religion that surrounds him is practiced by extremely bigoted peeps. (the sons of svanir) so it makes sense they refer to jormag as he.

    in the end it doesn't really matter tho

    In reference to the final battle with Zhaitan. They are all calling Zhaitan him, which is also interesting.

    Kinda hope it’s a female Elder Dragon. Would be a nice change of pace.

    i thought the EDs were androgynous

    Yeah this is a strange one, Mordremoth through Heart of Thorns is described as an it rather then a male for example and yet Kralkatorrik is being described as male, which leaves me to believe that they have a gender of some sort.

    : That crystal monster—he's HUNTING her!

    : Kralkatorrik beat back Glint's army. Now he's gorging on the Domain of the Lost.

    There is also an event that references Jormag as male as well.

    I’ll search and see if I can find any other gender specific references for the dragons.

    it's not uncommon to refer to androgynous things or things with unknown genders as he. jormag is kinda a special case since the religion that surrounds him is practiced by extremely bigoted peeps. (the sons of svanir) so it makes sense they refer to jormag as he.

    in the end it doesn't really matter tho

    I guess it would interesting to me if the DSD was reference as a she, much like Glint and Aurene.

    In reference to the final battle with Zhaitan. They are all calling Zhaitan him, which is also interesting.

    Eh, like derd said, it's pretty standard practice to refer to individuals with unknown gender as masculine. It's a practice born out of "it" being considered rude to use when referring to others. "They" has become a more common practice as of late, and some folks do use feminine pronouns from time to time. Doesn't really mean too much.

    Yeah no, I realize this, I just think it would be nice flavour for the DSD to be referenced as female.

    Funny thing, I scoured through all the text referencing Mordremoth and it’s always referred to as an it and never give a gender, same with Primordus. I suspect that the Zhaitan reference was just an anomaly during the writing process.

    Glint and Aurene on the other hand are considered female and Vlast considered male, I assume Anet is just canonically making Kralk a male.
