Wolf Webster’s name matches well with that of his big sister, Stormi. Kylie Jenner once said in a YouTube video (via Us Weekly) that she was ” looking on nature names, like weather-earth inspired” when she decided to combine the name “Storm” with her own feminine “ie” ending. It also fits with the Kardashian clan’s penchant for standout names, though it’s not quite as unique as Psalm and Chicago West. While Wolf isn’t found on the Social Security Administration’s top 200 baby names of the 2010s, it was the 218th most popular name on Nameberry last year.
But Travis Scott and Jenner are hardly the first parents to look to the wild when deciding on baby names. Other famous folks who’ve done the same, per People, include Alicia Silverstone (Bear Blu), Amy Lee (Jack Lion), Kate Winslet (Bear Blaze), and Nicole Richie and Joel Madden (Sparrow James). They’re not even the first celebs to choose Wolf; Zooey Deschanel has Charlie Wolf, Jason Momoa has Nakoa-Wolf, and Wolfgang “Wolf” Van Halen is the son of the late rocker Eddie.
Interestingly, studies have shown that we choose baby names based on both their meaning and their sound. Names with lower vowel sounds, like Thomas and Alexander, are subconsciously associated with tallness and higher social rank, per Psychology Today. So, Wolf wins out in terms of both meaning and sound, and he has two famous parents making him one lucky boy all around.
