I'm starting to play with Penelope, Azalea, Journey, and Fiddle, now, on occasion Fenris... Fenris is meant for very random chatting. Fiddle's meant for random RPing or just playing a fiddle at the randomest times in general. Journey is my quiet RPer, and Penelope is a loud RPer, though very small and weak. And Azalea is Azalea, usually I don't use her, but I use her more than Fenris. Usually when I use her I end up chatting instead of RP, since it's weird not having BB with me... Dodger! C'mon!

Well I use the black and brown wolf on full darkness and orange-ness, (in the second row) however her name is Tundra, despite not having any resemblance to snow. A LONGGGG time ago when I played the game (Like 2015 long ago) and there were only 5 fur options I used the white fur, and decided to name my wolf Tundra since it fit. She was timid, weak, and couldn't hunt. (BORING!) After the update that added LR, accounts and ranks, I had trouble using multiplayer so I stopped playing for a while. Eventually I saw some people play it and decided to try and fix everything. Finally I managed to get on multiplayer but I had forgotten my desc. All I remembered was I used to use the name Tundra and I liked it, but I also wanted to use the new furs so I tried the darker ones, while keeping the same name. Eventually Tundra evolved into a sassy, sarcastic, and blunt wolf that she is now. The complete opposite of her earlier version. I could never imagine playing a game with any other name, and its like a link to when the game was much simpler. Contrary to other wolves she doesn't have some dark tragic backstory in which her alpha was mean and everyone died bla bla bla. She doesn't have a backstory at all...She doesn't need one.

Grizzer is my main character. He is named after a wolf at the International Wolf Center.

Rex is my second. Just because 'Rex' is such a dog name...thus naming a wolf 'Rex' is just funny to me.

My Main wolf's name is Beowulf (or Beo for short)
He is named after the ancient piece of literature, Beowulf.
For those of you that don't know what it is,
(I'm bad at explaining stuff) Wikipedia defines it as

"Beowulf is an Old English epic story consisting of 3,182 alliterative lines. It may be the oldest surviving long story in Old English and is commonly cited as one of the most important works of Old English literature.

Penelope's long gone XD
I play as a wolf named Chirp, who is usually 75% both strength and speed, and stamina is 0%. But on occasion when I play with other wolves, I'll edit Chirp and then come out with one of my usual three wolves, Unknown (75% both stamina and speed, my smallest wolf I play with), Azalea (is kind of small too, both stats as Unknown but for some reason Unknown is smaller), and then Hope (20% strength, and really high speed, and I don't remember stamina..). Hope is a white wolf with two scratches on her muzzle, Unknown is a black and white wolf with yellow eyes (so pretty), and Chirp is red and orange with eyes that match her tawny coat.

Sounds fun, I might as well.

Buzza - My main wolf. He's named after the guy behind WolfQuest's signature soundtrack. :wolf:
Silverback - A large, strong wolf, 100 strength plus the Limpy trait and the Lamar Canyon Pack 3 pelt. His name was shamelessly stolen from mature male gorillas. He's usually pretty useless, but great for taking down those moose in multiplayer.
Sage - Invented after realizing I didn't have any female wolves. She's named after the plant, which happens to be featured in last week's dev video.
Snownose - You ever notice how the new pelts's noses have a strange white top? Snownose is named after the "snow nose" condition where dogs temporarily lose their nose pigment. Of course, their noses usually turn pink, not white, but hey.
Tannin - Made when I got tired of greyscale wolves and wanted something brown. I know tannins as the chemicals that make acorns bitter and nasty if you don't leach it out, but tannins got their name from being used in tanning hides and they're in a lot of foods. Let it be known I play my wolf simulator with class and science! 8) :acorn:
Boon - A small, insignificant fellow. His name comes from the word "boondocks."
Bushmeat - My namesake on here, since it seemed the most distinctive and less creepy than making my username Buzza. Honestly, the word bushmeat just sounds funny to me.

Personally I find most of my "best" names come from naming my mate, and pups to a lesser extent. I had a lot of playthroughs while achievement hunting and since there were so many and they don't stick around, I started to get.... creative.

Gry - Like 'angry' and 'hungry', the two main wolf emotions.
Ahoy - ...Get it? Ahoy, 'mate'-y! :P
Bond - The name's Bond. Pack Bond.
Orig - She had the original brown pelt and I hadn't seen it in a while.
Inal - Orig's replacement.
Noone - Pronounced "Noony," not "no one," clearly. :wink:
Ingot - Fresher than the tired old "Silver," and delightfully close to what I found myself calling a lot of my mates... Idiot.
Esperar, Gustar, Tomar, Estar - Need to dig up some identifiable words for naming your many AI packmates? Try remembering high school Spanish verbs.
Newton, Pascal, Joule, Watt - As above, but high school Physics. They get bonus points for actually being named after people.

  • i named my current male wolf vaka. he's named after one of my favorite sigur rós songs; vaka is also an actual nordic name that's usually for girls but i thought it was cool and just stuck with it.

    my female wolf is named sigrun, which is also a nordic name.

Aside from my main wolf, I have a new recent wolf (which is also a human character) named Phasoli. It means "bean" in Greek, and initially, the name started out as an affectionate nickname from Kamaal, a friend of mine.

I have many wolves, but I will name a few of my important ones.

Quest: The name just sounds cool, also, it is also based on the name WolfQuest!

Hinto: Named after a character in a wolf animation series I watch.

Spring: The name fit her well. Her coat is the color of dry grass, and I somehow thought Spring fit that very well.

Cosmix: (This one is weird) One time, my sister (2wolf22) was playing in my bring it on pup game. I was playing as Quest. All four pups died, and for some reason this new litter of four pups just replaces them. Silver (2wolf22) drops one near the creek and it dies. (I think they fixed that). We try again and another dies. 2wolf22 says those pups were clumsy and fell into the creek. My tablet keyboard wasn't working, so I couldn't name them. We said their names should both be "Clumsy Cosmo". After we reached the summer site, I created this wolf, with the name "Cosmix" as a variation of poor Clumsy Cosmo.

Cedar: It was just random.

My main wolf (by a long shot) is Valhalla. According to Wikipedia it's a majestic, enormous hall in Asgard ruled over by Odin. I got inspired by a video game, though.
Here are some more:
Noir- French for "Black"
Athena- Greek goddess of (and I quote Wikipedia) wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. Whew.
Entropy- Gradual decline into disorder (quoting Google).
Helios- Greek god of the Sun.

My main wolf (or rather shewolf) is named Meshki. It's a Persian word for "black". Particularly, black in an elegant and beautiful way :D As you can guess, it's because of my character's fur color (actually it's not really black, but very dark brown :wink:). That's it, just a random idea with no special backstory.

My current wolves are:

Ava: I first created her in the WQ 2.7 demo and I literally just picked a coat I liked from the new coats and gave her the first name I thought of, nothing special. She's become my main WQ wolf though and I've become attached.

Audrey: Again, got bored, made a random wolf, gave her a random name, I don't use her much.

Fionnoula: It's an Irish name pronounced Finn-oola, I do believe it's the feminine form of the name Fionn/Finn. She was actually a concept for an elderly wolf OC that I decided to make as a WQ wolf, I started play the SP campaign with her, so she's a young wolf in SP, will probably make her character old if I ever use her for MP roleplay.

Isaac: Last, but not least, Isaac, currently my only male WQ wolf (I'll make more in the future). He was a random wolf I made to try and do some achievement hunting with and I've done some SP with him as well. He's named after Isaac Newton as that was the first name that popped into my head.

In 2.5 I had a wolf I used a lot named Dusty, she was a sandy brown she wolf and I used her for everything I did in WQ

Ooh, more characters! (Only two, heheheh)
Flight. She is my main wolf, with ridiculous features! White feathered wings and the ability to get moonstruck. A few other friends were inspired and decided to be my same species, one of them becoming my companion. We all hung out together, until one of us were caught by the bloodmoon and killed us, craving the sight of blood. Flight is a very aloof character, she's free spirited, clever and submissive, and annoyed easily. Her coat is white, with black specks here and there.
Kara. Kara is a long story... AND she's a human XD and again, ridiculous features (Though these are optional)! Kara never touches water, and when she does, it's a duck for the bathroom! -SPLAT- she goes when she shuts the door! (Heheh) Kara has green, round eyes, long, jet black hair, pastey white skin, green T-shirt, black denim jacket and jeans with flip-flops. Her father and cat died, leaving her with only her mother.
XD silly me

Erémon - Inspired by the character on Albion: The Enchanted Stallion, I'm not sure on the meaning yet.

Evelyn - Also inspired by the character on Albion: The Enchanted Stallion, unknown meaning

Anoki - Cheyenne, meaning Actor. Chosen because this character is nothing but an act.
