  1. I think I always liked canines and so Wolf just came up in my head as an option. I always liked unique names. The only way my husband would be down with the name was if we made it a “real” name. So his full first name is Wolfgang, but we only ever call hunch Wolf or Wolfie. Also if he ever wanted to go by a more common name, his middle name is Joseph. 🙂 his younger brother’s name is Bear (Barron).

  2. Everyone loves this name. He chose it himself 7 days after him joining us Earthside. It describes his soul completely.
