Edentulous - Gum and Gummer

How To Train Your Dragon poster
Toothless & Hiccup


Adjective. Early 18th century.
[from Latin edentulus.]

Having no teeth; toothless.

If the writers of the most excellent How to Train Your Dragon hadn't chosen Toothless as the name of the main dragon, they could have chosen Edentulous which, if you just think about it for a second, does rather sound like a classic Greek hero.

Do please leave your gummiest comments in the box below.
