Falconry seems to have been popular in many parts of the world across many centuries. I'm sure (as with hounds) birds of prey were sometimes viewed on a personal level as individuals.

Do we know of any personal names that were given to an historical bird of prey - or are there any stories about an individual bird of prey's prowess or behaviour?

Eagle, Hawk, Falcon and Buzzard are male names in Turkey but none of them in top 100.

And as a historical, each sub-tribe  of Oghuz Tribe (ancestry of Turks, Azeris and Turkmens) have a bird symbol.

Thanks. Kestrel, Merlin and Peregrine are boys names here. Did any of the Oghuzs give their birds personal names?

As I said 

"Eagle, Hawk, Falcon and Buzzard are male names in Turkey but none of them in top 100."

Eagle = Kartal

Falcon = Doğan

Buzzard = Şahin

Is that pic ( below) really a falcon? Looks like an owl.
