    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 think Wolf is cute. I would assume it was a little boy. Though, I don't see anything wrong with using it on a girl. I would probably use Wolfie or Fifi as a nickname for her though.

    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.

    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.

    I love Wolf as a middle name for a boy. I think many nature names can be unisex but not all of them. For example, I personally feel Rose, Violet, and Lily are all girl.
