You could name the wolf-dog Jamie after my mother's (late) dog. Not a wolf, but about the size of two wolves, and very beautiful. Luckily he had an absolutely sweet nature, and the only "danger" associated with Jamie was that taking the dog for a walk often meant putting up with lots of little children running up to play with this enormous dog, who was really a big lump of fluff, brown eyes, and wagging tail. That got boring, so just sometimes, a wolf-dog might have been more fun. And sometimes, tiny little dogs attacked Jamie, who would just stand, waving his tail, looking down at them in bemusement.

Hey, if that isn't a good enough reason,and why, indeed, should it be, there is also the Scottish historical figure James, the "Old" Jacobite Pretender, father of Charles Edward Stuart. http://www.scotlandspast.org/jacobite.cfm

Oops, that was a bit of a ramble, sorry. (Can you tell I still miss that dog)

I've just read this post, and I'm very interested. I am sure you are aware of DEFRA guidelines as they apply to wolf-dog hybrids. (http://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-countryside/gwd/wolfdogs/wolfdogs.pdf). Was it easy to obtain a license for your wolf-dog from the US? Also, will you be importing your wolf-dog through the PETS Travel Scheme, or will you be putting her into quarantine when you arrive? Surely this is a very time-consuming, expensive, and complicated process, and you must be a very dedicated wolf-dog owner to jump through all the hoops.

what about faolan (feulan)? it's the Scottish Gaelic for wolf.

I wonder about the back and forth. Going to the US is easy, just a proof of rabbies shot required, but back to the UK?

and of course, make sure you call it a dog, and not a wild life hybrid, lol.
