This is getting pathetic. I'm only did four names in my Wicca-lite theme month, and I'm already feeling like I just can't take it anymore. Therefore, I'm taking a short break back into strangeville.
Dinotopia has been a major influence in my life. I'm completely serious. I mean, think about it. Obviously the dinosaurs would appeal to any human child, but it also has beautiful designs that are inspired by multiculturalism and nature.

Also, the dinosaurs are not their pets. They're intelligent beings with equal citizenship. So all of the places are built with animals in mind. The series is written and illustrated by the awesome James Gurney, and I have seen a gallery of the full sized paintings used in these books and they're enthralling.
The series also features some pretty great names. These are from Dinotopia, The World Beneath, and Journey to Chandara. Figuring out which ones are humans and which ones are dinosaurs might be a little harder than you think:
