Names with animal meanings


I have recently been crushing on the sibset of [name_f]Delphine[/name_f] and [name_f]Leonie[/name_f], with their linked animal meanings (dolphin and lioness). I am looking to expand the theme to include boys! I think [name_u]Griffin[/name_u] can work, but apart from that, I am at a bit of a loss. [name_f]My[/name_f] partner does not like [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you have any suggestions for this theme?

Thank you!

Here are a few that I found:

Averett - brave, strong Boar

Callum - [name_u]Dove[/name_u]

Channing - [name_u]Wolf[/name_u] [name_m]Cub[/name_m]

Corvin - [name_u]Raven[/name_u]

Lionel - [name_m]Young[/name_m] [name_m]Lion[/name_m]

Lonan - Blackbird

Lowell - [name_m]Young[/name_m] [name_u]Wolf[/name_u]

Orson - [name_m]Bear[/name_m] [name_m]Cub[/name_m]

Raynard - [name_u]Fox[/name_u]

Tod - [name_u]Fox[/name_u]

Here’s some more ideas:

Arnold = “eagle power”
[name_m]Buck[/name_m] = “buck, male dear”
[name_m]Colt[/name_m] = “young male horse”
[name_m]Drake[/name_m] = “dragon, serpent” or “male duck”
[name_u]Jonah[/name_u] = “dove”
[name_m]Leonard[/name_m] / [name_m]Leopold[/name_m] = “lion”
[name_m]Wilbur[/name_m] = “wild boar”
