Elder Scrolls Skyrim is a very popular game which, despite being released in 2012, remains one of the favorites among gamers and modders.
Dragons are an important part of Skyrim lore. So, the game developers have given them unique dragon names as well as crafted a special Dragon language.
In Skyrim, dragons are a reptilian race coming from Akavir. They are very intelligent and have their own language and speech. They were almost extinct but came back with the resurfacing of Alduin. You play as Dragonborn and will fight these evil dragons. Dragons generally appear near dragon lairs. Dragons of Skyrim look similar to wyverns. The dragon names of Skyrim are magical and have a folklorish ring to them. They were created using three words from the Dragon language but not all dragons have names. Only dragons that are related to quests and have been resurrected by Alduin have names. We present a complete list of the dragon names of Elder Scrolls Skyrim. We have also collected the categories of some of the unnamed dragons in Skyrim whom you might come across during your journey through the game.
