Well I think it's pretty complex

eg. Fire Serpent: Aldrnari Nağr (according to my book)

Unless you've been raised around a Scandinavian language or are particularly skilled with linguistics it would take a bit of practise to get this right lol

True, though once you've got the basics of pronunciation covered it's not too difficult to learn how to say the words. Mastering sentence structure etc can be significantly more difficult depending on whether the language has the same roots as your native one.

Both thorn and eth make the same sound (th). It's just that one comes after a vowel and one after a consonant.

The ship is now named: Nağr-Hyrr.

It means Serpent-Fire. I am unsure if it is grammatically correct, but it's the correct words in Old Norse and is the correct implication of the words if I am understanding the nuance correctly.

Why? Because dragon enters English from Latin via Old French. Maybe "drake" could have been used, but I don't want people thinking it's spawned from a male duck.

And the implication is not that the ship is a serpent, but that it is the flaming exhalation from one.
