Stalking Wolf = Stalcaire Mic Tíre

or

Mac Tíre stalcaireachta

Wait for corrections or other suggestions.

Is this intended to be a name?
If it means "the wolf who stalks"
I'd suggest

(An) faolchú loirg

James, A Chara,

Be careful with these "english to Irish" translations. They rarely make as much sense (poetic and otherwise)when translated. Give us some more data as touched on by mó chara stór (or is it mór) Aonghus and we'll get you a translation that, while not translating the same words, will convey the same meaning.

Ard mór ort!

Le meas,

James (as africa)

>mó chara stór
mo chara mór; probably
stór is not an adjective, so cannot qualify cara

Stalcaire does mean stalker; but it feels like a recent loan word, which is why I used "lorg"

Mac Tíre and faolchú ar synonyms for wolf.
