Now that we have a word for dragons…… we can translate all the English stories with dragons to tamil……. Like let us take sleeping beauty….. if I remember right there used to be a dragon protecting her……… so the story line would be…….." SLEEPING BEAUTY WAS PROTECTED BY A PAKKI " LOL JJJJJ

Since Dragon has many extrodinary powers it can have some "punai peyar" with its name or its characteristics can be its name.. 

crow n cats dun ve any extrodinary powers since they have been called by this name for many genrations.

Correction welcomed

Let's be innovative dragon is a single new word in English not something like flying fire spitter……….. we should try for something like

 

 

 crow---- kaka

 

 cat---- poonai

 

 dragon-- ?

"Kanalkakki" J
Kanal -> (ka null) Fire

Kakki -> (kak key) Spits in large amount

 

It seems to be in rhythmic effect. J Does all the dragon spits fire? Clarification needed.

Hi All,

And while coining a word for Dragon in Tamil, Pls do consider that Snakes doesn't have Limbs. But Dragons have Limbs I suppose.

 

As Dragons blow Fire, I wud suggest 'Theekaki' would be a apt word J.

 

Thee- Fire

Kaki- One who spits something ! J

 

Suggestions Welcome !

Referring from the tamil literature "nagam" (naa gha m) is not the correct word used to mention the snake. They used the word "aravam" (a ra vam). One can see this in 'Puranaanuru' works. For dragon we can use "maa naagam"(maa – large in tamil, nagam means serpent). "Maa Nagam" can be used. Corrections are welcomed J

Dragon is a mythological creature mainly from Chinese and European Culture.

I don't think there is a direct equivalent in Tamil exists.

 

Wikipedia says

 The word "dragon" derives from Greek δράκων (drakōn), "a serpent of huge size, a python, a dragon"            

That explains why they have used Nagam while translating "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon"

 

Otherwise there is an imaginary creature called "Yaazhi" which is extensively used in Dravidian architecture.

As far as I know, Yaazhi is actually a modification of Lion. But I have read somewhere that Yaazhi is similar to Dragon in many aspects.

(I couldn't attach the picture of Yaazhi here. You can google it and compare with dragon J I leave it for you to decide if it is similar or not)

May be we can use 'Yaazhi' as the equivalent for Dragon. J
