Well we know that Bron was called Littlefoot when he was younger from LBT10 so I'm guessing that Longnecks adopt a new name once they reach adulthood.
Well, I think, "Littlefoot" was just child "tease nickname". :D
I don't think longnecks change their names when they grow up...
Keeps writing "sharptotoh" instead of "sharptooth" since 2015.

I think Littlefoot may or may not change his name for 2 reasons
1.Because Littlefoot is the name he had all his life
2.Because Thunderfoot is a name that would make other adults think that he doesn't have a childish name.
In more thoughts, he keeps his name for his friends and family and adult name for other adults.

...yeah, I don't think every longneck gets a new name, it's just one of those childhood things that stay with you. I think Littlefoot name won't change, because his name is too known and too loved to be renewed.
I am a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. On the forum, I was formerly known as Hypnobrai until Nov 11, 2017.

In recent years, I have gained an interest in the production of The Land Before Time, particularly the deleted scenes of the original film. New discoveries have been made in the last few years and continue to be made, so I feel that it is a good time to contribute.

I have always loved sharpteeth more than any other creatures in the franchise, especially the fourteenth film's Carnotaurus, the fifth film's Sharptooth, and especially the original Sharptooth.

From the lore point of view, it would certainly make sense for longnecks like Littlefoot and Shorty to change their names when they grow older. Maybe it's some tradition with the longnecks to name their children with such nicknames for the durations of their childhoods. Of course, Littlefoot's name will never change in the series and I don't think it would be advisable to do in a fanfic but this childhood name theory sounds pretty sensible for me.

However, as Hypnobrai suggested, I don't think it is mandatory for a longneck to have a separate childhood name and if they do, I'd see them being able to hold onto it if they wish so (which Littlefoot might do). For example, there's little reason for Ali or Rhett to have a name change.

How about we say that Thunderfoot is his nickname? Something to make him sound heroic? (Saving his friends from thunder rumbles)

Thunderfoot, as well as Bambo, as well as Ovie, are just early variants of names. There's no hidden meaning or additional history about it. :|

So, I take your response as a yes, snik?

I'm kind of confused by your question. I'd say it's a no because those names aren't supposed to reflect on their personalities or abilities, they just happen to be early production names that may or may not sound cool.

I say only Littlefoot never was called as "Thunderfoot" in LBT history, and he would never change his name in the future, me think. He was named after his father's child nickname.

I don't think Little Foot would change His name, it was name given to him by his mother. I suppose you can change Little Foot to mean when he is older he's humble, and does not take big steps into trouble, perhaps this would further my claim in my last post that Little Foot is like his grand pa in wisdom, and like Bron in leadership. Thus Little Foot retains an element of his grand pa, not hasty to make judgements (I am talking about you Topsy or Mr. Threehorn).

Little Foot I think would cherish his name because it came from His mother, and perhaps Father, in that Little Foot was Bron's name once, and probably Little Foot's Mother got the idea from Bron's old name, which could allude to that Little Foot's Mom and Bron knew each other since they were little dinosaurs.

Could be like in the Seven Hunter's story. Littlefoot get's a new name when he becomes an adult, basically signifying that he's grown up and ready to handle adult responsibilities, but it is really only a public name. His family and close friends would still call him Littlefoot.

It's just if you were not close to him, you'd be expected to use his new public name, otherwise, expect a stern whacking! :lol

Littlefoot: "Look, Chomper. You're uncle is dead, and it's just right for your friends to be there for you. You'd be there if someone we know died, right?"

Chomper: "Well, sure I would!"

That is a possible alternative, but I still think Little Foot would keep his original name because it came from His mother, and mother knows best:
