I think it's a bad name personally, but I don't see why a little girl couldn't wear it just as well as a boy. If you love it, more power to you!

I just don't understand it as a name. I could see it on a girl in writing, but not speaking it. The sound is just awkward in my mouth, and i can't imagine someone (boy or girl) saying the phrase "Hello, my name is Wolf." It just doesn't sound right, you know? Maybe it's the fact that it's such a short sound, or the lack of a hard letter in it? I think this is better saved for a middle or a fictional character.
Caroline Wolf Jones, for example, works. But like "hey, nice to meet you, I'm Wolf Jones" just sounds bizarre.I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

I've always found Wolf(e) to be really harsh and violent. I like animal names (and nicknames!), and my grandmother's favorite animal is the wolf, but I just can't help but think of those vicious animals barring their teeth and attacking children and ughhh. I wouldn't want my name to be Wolf. I really don't see anything appealing about it at all. (Then again, I love Fox and Bear, which I suppose could be just as vicious...)
ETA: I think technically, it could work on a girl, since it is an animal name, but Wolfgang is an established and longstanding boys' name. With Wolfgang's popularity, and Wolf's rising interest for boys, I really don't see it working well for a girl. It could work, but I wouldn't recommend it.Ashley

I definitely would not name a girl wolf. Not only does it have a manly feel to it, but you just don't want to name a girl anything that can be turned into dog. It's just a cruelty waiting to happen.1 amazing son: Theodore IsaacWhy yes, I probably should be working!
