Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about this word and how it is used?
I studied the word nearly fifteen years. The earlist record of loong I found can be traced back to the year of 1814, the book Elements of Chinese Grammar, written by English missionary Joshua Marshman.
The useages of loong have not stopped from that time.
In Google books, with the key word loong, many more applications can be found, such as:
In the year of 1817:

1882: The loong or dragon, as it is commonly translated, is to the Chinese nation all that the eagle is to us, and a great deal more.

To the Chinese, probably borne out of superstition and belief, the name "Loong" which means dragon in Chinese, bears auspicious connotations and can bring the bearer of such a name to greater heights in his future.

担心外国人不懂中国文化，我只选择了由英文单词组成的 loong 运用案例，使外国人能够看出商标的含义，而没有使用半音译的例子，例如：Gu Loong、rLoong 等。好在 loong 的运用实例非常多，即使只选了一部分，绝对数量也已经非常可观了。
我的英语不好，希望有精通英语的朋友也来提交 loong 这个词，我可以提供各种有关资料。
【补记】今天想向 collins 提交 loong，但是一直注册不成功。随后向 Webster 提交，但是提交后一直显示 sending...，不知道能不能传过去。（黄佶，2021年11月27日）
