Do dolphins have names?

    Do they call each other by name? Like humans do, except that they use those beep sounds instead of voice?

        I'm sure they have, since they are living in communities and having evolved "communication systems" between them.

                              Are they called Delphine?

                                Yes they might have names, but they will call themselves in their own code language.

                                      Scientists have found further evidence that dolphins call each other by "name". Research has revealed that the marine mammals use a unique whistle to identify each other. A team from the University of St Andrews in Scotland found that when the animals hear their own call played back to them, they respond.

The whole show was about a Dolphin called Flipper. Just kidding - I have no idea but my guess is that "name" is a very human concept (humans have a way of trying to think of an animals from a human or like a human perspective). Do they have a way of communicating? Yes. Do they have different communications for different purposes, such as coordination? Yes. Do they have a way of calling specific individuals - I'm sure they do. Is that a "Name"? Maybe.... maybe it's as much a name as you wearing your favourite jacket, and having someone call to a person wearing that jacket. Name means different things in different cultures in humans, so expecting Name to mean in "Dolphin communication" the same thing it means in English is very unlikely.
