Some of the most member dragon species names include some variation of the word Wyvern or Drake. A Wyvern is a dragon that has wings and two legs.

Whereas a Drake does not have wings at all and is quadrupedal. There are a number of other dragon subspecies like Wyrms, which are dragons without any limbs.

All dragons, however, are reptilian in nature and most are covered in scales. Couple these characteristics with the suffixes -vern, -drake, or -wyrm, and you will be sure to have a name that screams "I'm a dragon!".
