Somewhen ago when I followed a discussion about soul names I made sense of it this way: In the early days, when the mix of elfin and wolfin blood was fresh and competing many Wolfriders (maybe all of them) had to go on a "soul name quest" to find their soulname ... to discover their very self. Many generations later the mix of blood was settled much better - and the kids simply knew or discoverered their soulname while growing up, as easy as they found out about other abilities. A "soul quest" became a comparably rare event when an elf was troubled and unsecure about their own way. The Wolfriders of the last few generations are balanced so well that the cubs simply know their own soulname from the beginning or as soon as they can understand what it means. Just my two cents. :)
