ulf

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old norse 
NAME ROOT:
*-WULFAZ > úLFR
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old Norse name “úlfr”, from the Ancient Germanic element “*-wulfaz”, meaning “wolf”. Wulf and Wolf was one of the most prolific elements in early Germanic and Nordic names. It could figure as the first element in dithematic names, as in Wulfstan, but especially as second element, in the form “-ulf, / -olf”. The numerous names ending in -wulf, -ulf, -olf gave rise to hypocorisms (pet) from an early time, which were later also treated as given names in their own right. The wolf is a very important figure in Germanic and Norse paganism more than a thousand years.
