Well, Christopher Paolini made Eragons name Eragon because if you change one letter it becomes dragon, but I've thought about another reason why he could've been named that. Not that it really matters, but if you take the 1st 3 letters of his name 'era', an era is a long period of time, much more than a year. The next 3 letters 'gon' could be like the word gone, so it would be era gone. When Eragon was born, a era ended, started something new, something that would be changed. So a meaning for Eragon could be an old era has ended (gone) and a new one has begun.

wow yall think way to much though an anagram for orange(orange being my favorite color) is pretty awesome, he prolly has a freind names eragon or something or he really likes aragorn from lotr, so he made it sound like that, cheers im so smart...well not really

i know gotta strut those blond roots. But no does anybody else notice how similiar his name is to Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings
AraGorn
EraGon
they both have the era thing going on the only difference is the gorn and gon thing.

ya, i was thinking about the whole aragorn/eragon similarity thing too. it was probably a coincedence, but i don't know for sure. maybe he was kinda inspired by the name, i don't know.

Yes there are a lot of similarities between the inheritance trilogy and the lord of the rings. It's a bit similar in some ways to star wars as well.

ya, it is kinda a mix between starwars and lord of the rings. though it is still pretty original. most authors do get "inspired" by different books.
