Still its a nice name :) I love the name.

I dont think its spanish otherwise my gf would have noticed. She teaches spanish. Plus JKR was into her Latin, not so much Spanish.

That said alot of Europeon Languages have interchangeable words or words that mean the same thing just spelt and/or pronounced slightly differently.

I suspect Lupin is the Latin and Lupen is the Spanish. I will ask her tonight.

So the Spanish word for Wolf is Lobo not Lupen. The name Lupin is spelt as Lupin because its the latin name for a flower.

my book states:

Lupita: (of which Lupen, Lupe, Lupeline come under)

Spanish: Form form of Guadalupe meaning 'from the valley of wolves'

Its a female name not a male but I dont tihnk that matters in any way

another name book has

Lupe
Spanish: 'She wolf' A fierce guardian of the home again female and no male version

the male version I find close is Ludolf which most things with dolf refers to wolf and this old german.

I know my Spanish friend loved Lupen and it was shown alot over in Spain when he was a kid so thats why my thinking was that Lupen is a male spanish version of the name Lupin but I think we all get theres a big wolf connection either way :)

And we need more pics :)

More pics are a must...as soon as I find my camera...
lupen might well be Spanish, I don't speak it so I don't know, or French or Italian they are all very similar.

but whatever the origin, it is a very fitting name for him.
