Title: Do you spell it Redclaw or Red Claw?
Post by: OwlsCantRead on October 24, 2019, 04:03:33 AM
Redclaw, and Red Claw.

I've seen both spellings in forum posts, wiki comments, the internet, the likes.

Now I see Red Claw (with two words - and that's the one the TV series credits use themselves) more than the other, and that is the term I prefer, but is there a clear consensus and one you prefer over the other? Or do you use them interchangeably and confuse even more people. :p Does the spelling even bother you or is it just me?

While I have seen people use both of them, I mostly prefer Red Claw as it’s somewhat more clear to read compared to the other one, in my opinion. I believe I’ve only ever seen Redclaw used in fanfiction or few standalone posts on the forum. Other than that I haven’t run into the former that much. The spelling in the first one does bother me enough so that I don’t use it, but it is not something I will fret over too much. At the end of the day, people go with what they decide suits them the most.

But normally - Red Claw.

I always thought it was Redclaw. I mean, no one seems to mind Littlefoot being one word instead of Little Foot.

Though I kinda joined the apparent consensus of calling him Red Claw (and if the TV credits confirm that then I guess that's what it is :p )

In the end I'm not a big stickler as to which is preffered. I'll use whatever.

I don't think that you want to say that to his face. A sure way to an early grave - if he can catch you, that is. :p

Ooooh...

That’s who Stupid Claws was! I thought it was some kind of OC you made. :lol

I always said Red Claw, and I have never seen the other spelling before.

Hold on, is that supposed to be an insult or joke to the beloved jolly man that brings children gifts and joy every year?

Are you serious right now? :anger

He’s your prime target now. You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout...I’m telling you why.

Santa Claws is coming to town!
He’s no incompetent fool like Red Claw, I’ll tell you that for sure. :bestsharptooth

Wow. I just found an actual metal Christmas song named Santa Claws Is Coming To Town. Yes, I do like it. :P

Nah, no disrespect at all was meant to Saint Nick. "Stupid Claws" just made me think of Santa because their names were similar, and also because we'd been talking about Christmas recently. I'd never do anything to deliberately upset Santa. I still want to get presents from him this year, after all. :P

Haha, wow. Funny how the first half of the song still uses a lot of the same lyrics, yet the metal sound puts a distinctly more sinister spin on it.

I mean...this thread would kinda be dead if that Santa Claws joke was never made. There's really nothing to discuss off of something as simple as a preferential way of spelling someone's name.

But hmm...imagine Santa Claus in the LBT universe as a Sharptooth. "Santa Claws..."

Would you really want him around your children to give tree sweets, treestars, and shiny stones while they're asleep in the middle of the night? Ooh, now that would be quite interesting for the Great Valley residents indeed. Oh, and he feeds on naughty leaf eater children instead of just giving them coal or whatever. :lol

There's enough fanfics where dinos meet humans. I bet that could be their interpretation if said humans ever tell them about santa.

Especially since in some cultures he has helper that DOES take naughty kids.
