Maybe Tippy got his name due to being a spiketail like Spike. Basically when they grow up they will have spikes on them that end with tips  :p

Ooh! ooh! I got one!

I've heard alot of people say that Doc's name comes from "Duke", which was apparently John Wayne's nickname, as well as his species named "DiploDOCus". I'd guess it's a combination of the 2.

And yes, I think Tricia's name is just taking the TRI from TRIceratops and making it sound more like a name.

Rhett could be a reference to Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind. Rhett Butler was a very boastful and manipulative character, at least before he got married to Miss Scarlett.

I'm not sure if this mecessarily means anything, or if it even was deliberate, but Guido's name is, as well as being obviously derived from his species, Microraptor Gui, an American slang term for an Italian immigrant. Now, am I the only person who thinks that Guido has an ever so slight Italian-American accent?

He is the largest of the tiny dinosaurs, and apparently the father of at least some of the tiny longnecks, hence his name.

Really? I've read on one site that he's the smallest of them. Weird.

I don't know if anyone already know this, but...

Tria + Cera + Topsy = Triceratops

Yes, MarzGurl pointed that out.  :smile

I knew this already except for the Littlefoot one.  That suprised me.  Is there any proof that his original name was going to be thunderfoot, however.

If I missed any, let me know

You missed Tricia, I think

I'd hate to think Ozzie got his name from that British dude. 



Now that's a funny idea!  :lol

You all know how Petrie is a fearful character? Even in movie one, he even clutched Littlefoot, immobilized with fear. Well, there is a word that has that definition: petrified. Let's take a close look at that word: PETRIfiEd. Take those capitalized words, and you have Petrie, someone who is often petrified with terror. I can even see him being afraid of things as soon as he was hatched, thus his parents (or just mother) naming him that. I think it's a fairly reasonable speculation.

Wow, interesting! I never thought of that!

But what do you mean by "even in movie 1"?

If an attribute did not take place in the first movie, I do not have a leg to stand on when I present a possibly theory for an aspect of a character's creation. If Petrie was scared in all the movies except for the first one, and being as there was not originally a plan to make sequels, my suggestion would not be plausible.

Very interesting! =) A lot of characters' name origins are fairly obvious, but others are less so. Until reading the list, I had never even heard of Rinkus or Sierras' species. For the most art, I thought some of the characters' names were just randomly chosen and not connected with their species, or much of anything else.
I honestly can't think of any certain connection with Ali's name. It's possible it was just chosen without having been based off of anything.

Nod Is A Reference To A Nodosaurus?
Yes, it is. I like Hyp, Mutt and Nod in Land Before Time 3. I have never seen Nod's family, Mutt's mother and Hyp's mother. :lol  :DD  :p  :blink:  :smile

Ozzie - Currently unknown origin.  Any thoughts?
Just taking a wild guess on this one, but the Struthiomimus is a descendant of the Ostrich, and Ostrich farming is common in Australia. And Ozzy just so happens to be an Australian slang term.

Well, Pterano I think is Pteranodon.  

Ruby's name was going to be "Ovie".  However, her name might have something to do with her coloring.  

Ali's name is a mystery.  (Perhaps she was set to marry and then divorce Littlefoot and the name meant "ALImony".   :lol )

Yes, I heard the Thunderfoot thing too.

Was going to mention that Doc's name may come from his species but see that someone already did, upon closer inspection.  I had quoted someone and had replied to it but now see that they mentioned it in the quote.
