How to Train Your Dragon – IMAX Giveaway

My older two children have made it to the very top of their behavior charts, which means they have earned a day at the movies, complete with candy and popcorn. I am delighted that How To Train Your Dragon is headed to theaters this weekend, because they are both itching to see it. It also looks like a movie that I will enjoy, so it’s a win-win.

Based on the beloved children’s story, How to Train Your Dragon tells a tale of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who instead of embracing his family’s long-standing heroic dragon slaying tradition, faces a predicament when he comes face-to-face with a dragon who challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from a whole new perspective. How to Train Your Dragon is sure to be a hit with children and families everywhere as it’s packed with comedy, action and adventure!

    After seeing one of the promo items at Wal-Mart, my son wants to name his dragon “Black Wing.” (No, not the most creative, but fitting for a 5-year-old. ~ grin)

  2. says

    Hmmm……. so saying Firebreather isn’t very creative, now is it? And Fluffy wouldn’t be right?

    How about Fierno? Sounds kind of like fire, but isn’t.

  3. says

    I think I’d name mine Malagoli (a combo of the first couple letters of each child’s name). Not super creative but it’s all I’ve got! 😉

  4. Leroy M. says

    I would have to name my dragon, Tratalor, my son is looking forward to this movie too!
    Thank you,
    Leroy M.

  5. Kelly says

    FYI: I’ve seen the trailer in theaters. It looks much more violent than the ads on TV. I would NOT recommend this movie for kids younger than 7.

  6. says

    I asked my children what they would name a dragon. My oldest, age 5, said she would name her dragon Saint George. My son, age 3, said he would name his dragon Teddy Bear. My youngest, age 18 months, said she would name the dragon Up. I’m not sure what I would name my dragon. I would have to meet the dragon first.

  7. says

    I would name my dragon “Second Star” as in “Second Star to the right and straight on till morning” from Peter Pan. It’s a line that just encapsulates adventure and freedom to me and I’d expect nothing less from a dragon. I’m really looking forward to the movie!

  8. Birdie S. says

    I’d name my dragon BLAZE ..cause she’d set bad things & bad people ON FIRE !!!!!!!!with her atomic flaming breath…..

  9. says

    Sounds like an adorable movie! My daughter loves Dragons!! I would use the first two letters for the males in our family and the last to letters for the females so our dragon would be named:

    LOBRAHDWET – It means mighty and fierce but friendly!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. says

    Ever since I read “Dragon’s Milk” by Susan Fletcher, I’ve loved the names of the dragon hatchlings in the book: Pyro, Synge, and Embyr. I think I would name my dragon Flyckr. :-) Thanks so much for the great giveaway, this is a movie I’m definitely wanting to see in the theatre!

  11. cwaltz says

    I would name our family Dragon Fred. It’s an easy name to pronounce and not very conspicuous so as to tip off the landlord that he might need to increase a security deposit due to our new family member’s proclivity to burn things down when he gets excited.


  12. Susan says

    I would name my dragon Mogwai. I wanted a pet when I was growing up and my parents wouldn’t let me have one. The name Mogwai is from the movie Gremlins. I thought Gizmo was so cute and he was a “Mogwai”.

  13. says

    Perhaps people would think this is too ordinary for something cool like a dragon, but I would call my dragon Charlie. When I picture myself with a pet dragon, it would be a Charlie dragon.

  14. crissy says

    i would name my dragon evidreaon{EV-DRE-ON} because it would be evil and talented but also sweet and ready to attack at a momments notice 😀

  15. dave says

    i’d name him mali-coli-alli(ma-lee-co-lee-all-e). I call him mali because he swims and the word mali reminds me of the word mahi and a mahi-mahi is a type of fish. I call him coli because he’s pure black and if you remove the i in the word the new word is col and col sounds like coal which is black. I call him alli because he can create waves and alli is a type of surfing move and surfers ride on waves.

  16. Jessica T says

    I asked my son what his name would be and he said “Chesterdamie”. Yep – don’t know where that came from, but that is it!

  17. Molly Capel says

    I would pick a name for my dragon based on the sounds he/she made or the way my dragon looked. My kids are itching to see this too.

  18. Tomi says

    I surveyed the boys and we’d name our dragon “Fiero”… so “Fiero” it is. Oh, the youngest if it’s a purple dragon we’ll call him “Nitro”.

  19. says

    I would name it “Don’tOpenYourMouth” or DOYM for short–that way, whenever its name was called, it would not open its mouth and breathe fire and singe everything in its path! If the dragon was called by this, it would know it was a person who knew it well so it would most likely not accidentally harm anyone with its fire!

  20. Jason says

    I would name him DR Parker Jointwater III because people would be like, “Hey look, that dragons a DR”!


  21. Dave says

    We would name him Smog after the dragon from the Hobbit. We are looking forward to seeing this film. Thank you for the chance to win.

  22. katklaw777 says

    We decided on Puffington, son of the famous Puff, the Magic Dragon. Great dinner conversation. lol Thanks.

  23. Terri says

    My dragon would be named Draakeneist ( courtesy of 9yr old dragon expert!)
    Thanks for the great opportunity!

  24. Katie S. says

    I would have to pick 1 of the following 3 names. Chompie, Pelosi, or Muffin. I’m really looking forward to this movie, it looks great and promises to finally have real world advice for training dragons… which I assume is a codeword for children :) Thanks!

  25. Mary Hoffman says

    I have a 6 yr. old, and 3 yr. old (grand-children). I think we would pick as many unusual names as we could think of, see what they mean and pick out of a hat!

  26. Pamela S says

    I would name my dragon Pyromaniac!! Seems appropriate for a fire breathing dragon! Thanks so much!

  27. Christina says

    I’d name my dragon Celestina (Italian for Beautiful Woman)! The dragon doesn’t have to have a male name!

  28. brooke says

    My dragon would be either LÓEGAIRE Means “calf herder” and would have the nickname Arie… Or one of my kids said it would be BOB-BOB …. (ahem) we will not go into details of why that name here.. lol

  29. Jean Hupke says

    I would name my dragon “Salutations” it is long enough and it sounds like a nice and inviting dragon.

  30. says

    I would go off the deep end and name mine Princess Pealof – because my daughter is all about princesses and Mrs. Pealof is from iCarly…sounds appropriate for a dragons name, right?! Why do they have to sound sooo harsh?
