Wolfgang Frances Novogratz, age 14

Nicknamed Wolfie, the eldest Novogratz’s name was inspired by his Austrian heritage. Not only do Cortney and Robert love Mozart’s music, they love his name -- and the fact that the composer’s village is near the hometown of grandfather Novogratz.

“After Wolfie was born, Robert got all the nurses to howl like a wolf in the hospital.” Cortney said. “A nurse even howled at me when I woke up from a nap once!”

Wolfie’s middle name is the same as his dad Robert’s.
