    Name suggestive of "protector of animals?"

    I'm looking to find a name that is suggestive of protector of animals and/or nature (i.e by meaning or association with a person/character/whatever)

    I know the obvious choice is Francis (for Francis of Assissi) but I can't use that

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Artemis was the goddess "protector of young animals and had the gift to tame wild animals". She was of course also a hunter, before those 2 things were seen as mutually exclusive.

    here's a list of other nature deities
    I think Medeina, Ash, Antheia, and Rhea are all pretty.
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin
