As a name for a boy, nn Wolfie.....

Other DC have slightly unusual names.

Is it too weird?

Citizen Smith.
Too weird.

A friend has just had a Wolf.

It's weird.

RortyCrankle Sun 12-Jun-16 17:34:44

Sorry, I think it's horrible.

I'm a wolfiefan.
But as a name for a child. In RL. Who one day will have to make friends, apply for college and go out to work. Um no. Just no.

Too weird. I'd think you were a Gladiators fan.

LunaLoveg00d Sun 12-Jun-16 17:36:42

Is he a Gladiator with a mullet?

If not, avoid like the plague.

I knew a Sharky; it's better than that!

KaraokeQueenOfTheNorth Sun 12-Jun-16 17:41:33

Like the gladiator! It's not a name I'd choose.

Wolfgang

Deaver Sun 12-Jun-16 17:42:57

It seems to be well liked on previous mumsnet threads grin

Mumandmama Sun 12-Jun-16 17:43:04

Awful!

Abetes Sun 12-Jun-16 17:44:24

No - don't. It's awful.

clippityclop Sun 12-Jun-16 17:44:53

No!

EdithWeston Sun 12-Jun-16 17:45:04

Very Citizen Smith!

I'd go for Wolfgang, or Wulfram as a full name. Or Edwulf, Caelwulf or Saexwulf if you're really into Anglo-Saxon

Fast forward 18 years, trendy bar in boy chatting up girl...

Hi, what's your name?
Maggie, you?
Wolf
Eh? As in arooooooooo werewolves in London?
Yes
Was your mum on gas at the birth?

I've laughed if a wolf tried to hit on me.

I like it as a short form of Wolfric. Could be shortened to Ricky as well.
I also like Alaric Alfred and Ulric.

Nannawifeofbaldr Sun 12-Jun-16 18:44:05

I always fancied 'Wulf' but it's sadly not a very sensible name... sad

Nataleejah Sun 12-Jun-16 18:55:29

If pronounced german way -- Volf, not Woolf -- its nice

Deaver Sun 12-Jun-16 18:56:14

Wolfric?

FrannySalinger Sun 12-Jun-16 18:59:03

Adore Wolf (but have very left field names for my own... Tiger is a definite if we have another, boy or girl)
