Bilbo is able to calm Smaug down with riddles. Dragons love riddles. Bilbo states his name in the form of riddles,

"I come from under the hill, and under hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air, I am he that walks unseen....I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly. I as chosen for the lucky number."
