Gonna pick this one up and see if I like it for use in BGs. I want some sort of mockery, sneering, sort of name. Like the Hyena is always laughing at its opponents.

Nevermind that my faction is outnumbered like three billion to one. It's the intent behind the name here...

I'm very big on names having some sort of meaning or connection to the character. For example,

Wolf (Ironjaw model) - Skatha (Celtic goddess of war) for DPS in instances/raids when I'm in MM
White Devilsaur - Moros (personification of DOOM from classical mythology)

I'm leaning towards feminine names for this one, but a really great male name would not be turned away. Hit me with your best shot!

Hyenas in the wild have a sex role reversal, so you'll need a masculine girls name or some famous woman who dominates men, like Calypso or something. ?

Jefe - Spanish for "Boss". I believe it's pronounced "heff ay".
Aerona - "Carnage, slaughter".
Damia/Damiana - "To tame, to subdue, to kill".
Megaera - "Grudge".
Pandora - In myth, she unleashed death, evil, and misfortune on the world.
Vlasta - "Power". In Bohemian myth, it is also the name of an Amazonian-like woman who started the "Maiden's War" against men.

Some Maori (Native New Zealander) names:

Aroha - Love/Mercy
Emere - Rival
Hera - Lady, Protectress
Iraia - Wrestler of Gods
Kake - To Arise/Climb

Note - Im not 100% sure on the pronunciation of all of these, as im not Maori myself (Maori are a bit like Native Americans/Australian Aborigines - settled by the British, and most people in the country are of European descent - i.e. me)

Thanks for the suggestions!

I tamed my Hyena before going to bed and decided to name it today. Reread all your suggestions. Ended up on a weird association trip and wound up naming her "Hex".
