Following on from my thread last week

We are warming to Wolfric, but don't know if it would be usable in everyday life

Other shortlisted options are Xander, Caspar, Xavier

Wolfric is bloody fab! Love your other options too.

Thank you!

Bumping this...

I like Xander, dont like any of the others, sorry.

Wolfric is truely awful, sorry! It instantly reminds me of the film (I can't remember the name of it now) it had a character called ruprict the monkey boy & it reminds me of that, and what If he grows up to be slightly hairier than most men, he'll be for we known as wolf man! Not a good choice in my opinion! Xavier is lovely pronounced zav-yay or Casper, not an offensive at all xx

Love it. Prefer the Wulfric spelling though.

LadyMargolotta Sun 10-Feb-13 17:54:16

Wolfie is fab too. That's getting more popular in the UK.

This is my secret fav name! Please use it because I can't smile
I also love Wolfe.

Wolfric is a great name! Cool, easy to spell pronounce and not overused. Wolf or Wolfie are great nicknames.

Do you think people would spell it correctly without being told how?

scaevola Mon 11-Feb-13 14:52:02

I don' like that spelling, but think Wulfric is a lovely name.

fortheloveofpinkflamingos Mon 11-Feb-13 14:57:26

Is Wulfric the more common spelling? Having a common name that is spelt an uncommon (but still normal) way, I would like to avoid this

LadyMargolotta Mon 11-Feb-13 15:03:14

I just googled Wolfric and got the message 'Do you mean Wulfric'

50 000 hits for Wolfric; 500 000 hits for Wulfric.

Wolfric/Wulfric is bloody brilliant. Either spelling is accepted I think.

badtime Mon 11-Feb-13 15:59:07

To be honest, I only clicked on this thread to say that 'Wulfric' is the more usual spelling. I think Wolfric looks really wrong.

dubai71 Mon 11-Feb-13 16:13:36

I'm with Vito, I like Xander but not so keen on the rest. Sorry.

lifeistooshort Mon 11-Feb-13 16:19:08

OP why would you want to do that to your child. He will be teased endlessly at school and will be nicknamed wolf/wolverine/freak etc...

I like Caspar and Xavier though

MERLYPUSS Mon 11-Feb-13 16:32:20

I like Wolf (to sound like wolfe not woolfe) and Xander (short of Alexander so beware if you don't like this version)

Sunnysummer Tue 12-Feb-13 08:33:22

DH and I both looove Wulfric! But we are also foreign and a bit geeky and thought that our DS might already be an easy target, and the name would just add to the challenge of teenage years... To me it is adorable for a. Aby, manly for an adult, but very hard to live with in-between.

TheOneAndOnlyAlpha Tue 12-Feb-13 08:36:53

Sorry but I don't like it. I try and imagine what a child would feel with a name at 5, 10, 15, 30 etc. I work in a school and kids are harsh. Wolfie might be cute on a 5 year old but any older... Not so much.

MERLYPUSS Tue 12-Feb-13 09:45:17

I think it's great. However if your kid turns out to be a bit of a wuss it may be a hard name to live up to. It kinda reminds me of a Bear Grills type of person - out there making dens etc.

Oscarandelliesmum Tue 12-Feb-13 13:43:07

All lovely, Wolfie grin fabulous!!

FriggFRIGGisPoorlySick Tue 12-Feb-13 15:00:08

Love wulfric!

fortheloveofpinkflamingos Tue 12-Feb-13 15:09:22

merlypuss, you have got a point. I am beginning to think Caspar goes better with our older boys' names, although DH is still pushing Wulfric

Psammead Tue 12-Feb-13 15:13:26

I love Wulfric. We have no Dss but Wolf would be on our list if we did.
