What is the difference between "haash yinilye" and "haash wolye"?

I found on a different comment that yinilyé is the second person and wolyé is the third person. What's your name? - Haash yinilyé? What's the rabbit's name? - Gah haash wolyé?

However, there was a mistake in a different sentence in this same lesson. They used yinilyé instead of wolyé.

Why is this the word order?

I was guessing it fell under the S-O-V order: The rabbit (S) is called (V) what (O)? The rabbit what is called? Gah haash wolyé?

More exactly:
The rabbit, what's its name?
