Native Americans are the first people known to have named what we now call Coyotes. The Cherokees of this Coyote's region - the Smoky Mountains - called them ᏩᏯᎭ (pronounced wa-ya-ha). The Spanish later called them various names - such as "Spanish Foxes" or "Jackals" Coyotes, before settling on Coyote (which is seemingly derived from the Nahuatl name Coyōtl). Coyotes have long been considered particularly intelligent, an attribute I think this portrait reveals well.
