need a new name

I need to name a character.  A fairy tale character, making it hard enough.  many 

What makes it harder is that I have retold a variant of this and so can't reuse the villain's name I used that time.

I may just make up something.  You have to, with fairy tales.  So annoyingly sparse with names.  (Though the one with three named character, all of them called Ivan, was something else.)

Perhaps I will take advantage of the villain being sometimes a dragon to inspire me.
