Acnologia Bonkers Speculation
His real name is Lucia McGarden, son of Levy and Gajeel (he has DARK BLUE hair, you know) .
What gave me this crazy idea was that one timeline overrun by dragons where Levy was left (supposedly) alone, calling for Lucy. Say a couple of people, including Levy and Gajeel, survived the first wave of (10.000) Dragon attacks, then went into hiding or ran away, perhaps through secret tunnels. After a while, Lucy (having also lost an arm), who got separated from the rest, traveled to the past using Eclipse, while Gajeel perished trying to fight against the dragons or giving Levy the chance to run yet again, but not before she got pregnant with his child. Then, Levy, having developed an obsession with the elimination of Dragons for all the suffering they brought, started doing research on all kinds of magic (especially time-related) she could find amongst the information available in the ruins of civilization, even going as far as developing her own version of Eclipse or hijacking it somehow (Super-Archive?). With her child in tow (named 'Lucia' as a reference to her dear friend and as a nod to Mashima's previous series 'Rave Master'), already a couple years-old and with a similar hatred for Dragons, she wished to travel, say, 400+ years into the past, then have her son become the strongest DS, since he inherited a greater magic potential then both his parents combined. Unfortunately, one person had to stay behind/sacrifice their life in order to force the gates of time to open without Celestial Keys, so they had to part ways. Finally, having completed his time-jump, Lucia did train in DS arts, join the Dragon Civil War (doesn't matter which side) and start killing dragons as he was raised to do, but soon forgot the reason, consumed with power and rage, taking on the name 'Acnologia'.
