The name "Gaomon" refers to only the rookie form of this digimon. Throughout the series, Gaomon gains the ability to Digivolve into a number of more powerful forms (each with a different name). The rookie form, however, is his most common and preferred form.
Wanyamon is Gaomon's In-Training Form. His name is derived from the onomatopoeia for a dog's bark (わんわん Wanwan?) and a cat's meow (にゃにゃ Nyanya?), and as such resembles a cross between a dog and a cat. It is a Digimon fused from the data of small, pet animals like dogs and cats. Because its unexpected movements are also quick, caution is necessary so that it doesn't get away, but it becomes very emotionally attached if shown affection like a pet.
Gaogamon is Gaomon's Champion form. Gaogamon is a Beast Digimon whose name is derived from a concatenation of the onomatopoeia for roaring (ガオー Gaō?) and the onomatopoeia for a wolf's growl (ガルルル Garururu?), and whose design is derived from the Akita Inu dog breed. Gaomon's physique has gotten larger, and its steadily growing claws are protected by gloves. Although it is a quadruped, with its tenacious leg strength it can also stand up to attack like a bear. His name is a combination of the Japanese onomatopoeias "Gao" and "Ga," which are used to describe the sound of a growl. He resembles a large blue Akita Inu dog.
