Names for a Hunter

I'm attempting to name a character, and I'm drawing a blank.

Ok, the character in question is a woman who is, basically, kidnapped by an evil, ancient entity that fancies himself some sort of God of the Hunt. He uses her and several other mortals he's taken as prey in his endless hunt, turning her into a deer, a fox, a rabbit, whatever he feels like hunting that particular day. Through sheer luck she manages to elude him (though many of the others are not so lucky) and eventually escapes his realm completely, though she is still scarred and changed by her experience.

Now that she is free, she's taken on a "the hunted will become the hunter" sort of philosophy and has begin teaching herself the use of bow and arrow and other hunting skills in the hope that she can hunt down the evil things of the world and keep others from enduring what she did. During her time as an animal, she forgot her real name, so she has decided to take on a new one that reflects her decision.

This is the part that I'm struggling with. What should that name be? I could just call her "Hunter," but that's a bit redundant, especially seeing how many times I wrote "hunter" or "hunt" above already. I've been searching for names that have something to do with hunters, gods of the hunt, and so on, but other than Herne or Artemis, I haven't come up with much. The baby naming sites I usually use to help me pick out names are coming up dry too.

Any suggestions?
