永生之龙


Explanation:
If what in your mind is the song "dragons live forever, not so little boys", then my suggustion is:
“龙可永生”( Literally meams 'dragons can live forever')
龙(long) = dragon
可(ke) = can
永生(yongsheng) = live forever

Otherwise, it could be translated into:
“永生之龙”(literally means "dragons that live forever").
永生(yongsheng)=living forever
之(zhi) = of
龙(long) = dragon(s).

不死之龙


Explanation:
"不死之龙" may be more suitable. Based on what I know, there's a character named "不死之龙" in a computer game, and the name of biography of the famous Chinese kongfu star Lixiaolong is "不死之龙". It means a dragan will never dye or be destroied physically. Sometimes it also mean the spirit of the dragon remains even it passed away.
