The Elder Scrolls Dog Name Considerations

Often compared to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings series, The Elder Scrolls games are equally packed with diverse and intricate characters for dog loving gamers to name their pets after. In the same vein of the The Lord of the Rings series, the character who inhabit The Elder Scrolls games all have names derived from the various in game cultures and packed with meaning. Many characters often have names that are taken from real world mythology as well, so naming your dog after a character like the Dark Brotherhood's Astrid or even Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak will act as both a reference to the Elder Scrolls series and their Norse cultural counterparts of the same names. 

The main games in The Elder Scrolls series take place in different times and different places, so there aren't very many characters who recur throughout the franchise, save for the god-like beings known as the Daedric Princes. Despite the implications of that title, the Daedric Princes are gender-less and may take the form of mortal men or mortal women on a whim. Comparable to the gods of polytheistic cultures, the Daedric Princes all have unique names that will give your dog a unique alias that will also be instantly recognizable to other Elder Scrolls fans. The Aedra are another sect of god-like beings that persist throughout the Elder Scrolls series, though their roles in the games are typically more passive in nature, compared to the actions of the Daedric Princes. Older and more benevolent in nature than the Daedric Princes, the gods of the Aedric pantheon used a great deal of their power to help create the world of Nirn, the world in which the Elder Scrolls games take place. Nevertheless, both groups are mainstays in the franchise and both can provide your dog with and otherworldly alias that's Shor to stand out.
