A couple has emailed me asking to help out with naming their unborn child by suggesting Native American names meaning Wolf.  I only know Waya in Cherokee off hand and don't have the time to research anymore.  So, if you guys are in the mood or know any, go for it.  Please let us know which tribe it's from.  Thank you.
