Ulfra? I like that one. Reminds me of "Ulfric" which was most likely the inspiration for the name.
Ulfric being a "Wolf King" in Germanic and Nordic origins so I saw from a quick refresher. Being a Wolf-specific Warframe would certainly be a royalty in that format. Very few things compare to Warframes after all.

Also, no "U" in current Warframes we got. I often say these names to myself before making a proper judgement, so Ulfra sounds like it has power to it.
I don't think I need to elaborate in why a powerful sounding name works for a Warframe like that, right?

Raksha sounds powerful too, but it feels... I dunno, off? I imagine the feeling that names gives more emphasis on whips. Would work nicely as a Khora Deluxe (should they try another) name.
Lycath feels too on-the-nose. I've had plenty of cool names I've given to weapons that I ended scrapping for that reason alone.
Voruna seems pretty apt, but I felt it's origin name needing unicode (and being clarified) might leave it a bit obscure to some. Still good, but I feel Ulfra beats it.

I think the name "Fury" would have been better.
Joe Mad drew it, so Darksiers reference.
She can be a real fury in melee combat.
and a pun with "Furry" (for those who want).

I admit I hoped that a name that used "lacerate" as inspiration would pop up, but alas.

In the end I voted for Voruna. Lycath sounds to close to the clicheed Lycantroph and also like a male name to my ears. Raksha was too close to Rakshasa for me. Disa and Ghella sound not very warframey for me. Ulfra and Ylva sound nordic inspired which I usually like, but Voruna seems to be eastern european inspired and this area has way to little represantation in games. Dynara, Nashoba and Fengarou were just 'no' for me.

I just hope everyone votes for the names starting with D or U because there are no Warframes starting with those letters... With the exception of Umbra Excalibur but that really doesn't count.

Umbra is referred to as Excalibur Umbra, not Umbra Excalibur. I'd assume Umbra was Excalibur Umbra's actual name from when he was Dax.

Not really. Voruna is the name of a huntress goddess for the Slavic/Baltic Pantheon that transforms into either a wolf or bear. they dropped the ball with some of the others *cough* Lycath *cough*

Yeah, I understand some have translations to real world wolf references, just doesn't seem like they are very good ones imo. Voruna doesn't seem to fit the frame at all. Lycath is...*cough* uninspired.
