For me it depends, If it was an adult female the was pure white I would name her Angel.
If I had a male that was pitch black, I would name him Thunder, coal, Steel, Claw, or Ash. If it was a black female, I would name her Midnight, or Eclipse. Lol i cant choose! :lol: But the name i would adore the most for any kind of female wolf would be Katrisa, mostly if it was a pup. :) And I have not yet decided for a male name because i think they are all so cool! :wink:

For a male, I'd call him Might or Bigs, or Barbarian.
For a female, I'd call her Rosa.

If i had a wolf i would either name him Legend, (after myself) Fang, Scar, Hawk. Something like that.

I still don't understand why so many would want to name their "pet" wolves other than for personal entertainment? As I explained in my previous post (found on the first page), wolves do not necessarily react to their names at all simply because they do not share the same retractability and trainability as domestic dogs. Wolves are trained very differently from dogs - whereas dogs are commanded using voices and they respond to these vocal signals very well, wolves do not have an interest in a human's voice, but are far more intrigued by the usage of hand commandments and gestures expressed through body language and expressions - this is because wolves most often communicate with each other using different type of body postures and facial expressions.

In my opinion, there is really no coherent point in naming a wolf, because it's likely that it would never respond to the name it has been given by its human handlers/owners. In some cases, yes, captive wolves are so tolerant and comfortable with human presence and interaction (due to active and intense socialization and training) that they can be called over using their "name" and leashed by a handler, but to achieve this, the owner/handler should call the wolf by its name repeatedly and condition the wolf to perform things (in training situations) by saying its name and then awarding it with an edible price (wolves are extremely food-motivated and food is an effective tool in wolf training). Adjusting into training and socialization is hard enough for wolves without having to confound the wolf with having to respond and react to a name as well.

This is just my opinion, though. I am not telling anyone not to name their fictional "pet" wolves or real "pet" wolves in the future, but in my mind, it has absolutely no beneficial effect on the wolf's behavior, its habituation or training whatsoever.

Well, sometimes people think of what they would do if they had this or that animal. Sometimes people like to pretend/RP that they have an endangered animal.

The following content is off-topic, but... I feel like it's something I have to write.

SoniaHedgehog: I have not read this particular book your described ("Lone Wolf") but it has obviously given you some misconceptions about wolves. You cannot simply "take a wolf pup that is all by itself and raise it", because for one thing, wolf pups are not found wandering around aimlessly in the wild and secondly, wolf raising is extremely time-consuming and requires exceptional dedication, financial resources and high knowledge and training about wolves. The upbringing of pure-blooded wolves is not the same thing than owning and raising a domestic dog - wolves, even captive-born individuals, need intense socialization to humans, and continuous training. Wolves can be extremely dangerous pets, if they are not provided adequate living conditions and handled appropriately.

I don't believe in owning a wolf but, I think that Cochiti is a great name for both male and female! ;)

If I had a wolf I would name it Taloo, I don't know why I like that name. I guess I just think it is fun to say.

If I had a wolf: A male black wolf would be Hadoken, a male red and/or gray wolf would be Kenshi, a male white wolf would be Farryn or Gryphon. A female white wolf would be Karrn, a female gray/red wolf would be Bach or Ada, another female white wolf would be Frost. I like Hadoken and Karrn the best, though. 8) :wink: :P
