Help! Is this name culture appropriation?

My husband and I are actively trying to have a baby. We have been married for going on 4 years and the time just feels right. Recently we started thinking about baby names and there is one name for a boy that we absolutely love, but we are worried some will see it as appropriation towards Indigenous people. The name is Wesley Bear, Wesley is my husband's middle name and Bear is just something meaningful to us for reasons I don't wish to discuss. I know names like Bear and Wolf are commonly used in Native cultures and I don't want to do anything to upset them or take away anything from them. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
