Meaning: “Fame wolf.”
Nicknames: Rudo, Rulf, Rulfie, Rollo
Detail: From the Germanic name Hrodulf, which was derived from the elements hrod “fame” and wulf “wolf”.
Origin: Old Norse
Nicknames: Fen, Fenno
Detail: The meaning Fenrir is disputed on is thought to be the Old Norse “fen-dweller”. Another idea is the short form of Fenrisúlfr. Which means “Fenris-wolf”, derived from the name Fenris combined with Old Norse úlfr “wolf.” The etymology of the name Fenris is uncertain; it is thought that it is derived from Old Norse fen “moor, marsh, swamp” and Old Norse hris “brushwood, shrub.”
In Norse mythology, Fenrir is a monstrous wolf and is foretold to kill the god Odin during the events of Ragnarök (the end of the world).
J. K. Rowling also uses the name for one of her werewolf characters, Fenrir Greyback, in the popular Harry Potter series.
Meaning: “Noble Wolf.”
Nicknames: Ado, Dolf, Alf, Alfie
Detail: From the Germanic name Adalwolf, which meant “noble wolf” from the Germanic elements adal “noble” and wulf.
Is Adolf forever off limits? Middle name? How about his variations? How strongly do you feel about this name?
I think he is very handsome, however some people have gone as far to say that they would “doubt the morality of such a person” who would bear this name onto a child. I find this a bit on the extreme side.
Will this forever be my tainted love?
Meaning: “Of Rome.”
Nicknames: Rom, Rommo, Rollo
Detail: In Roman legend Romulus and his twin Remus were the founders of the city of Rome. As soon as they were born, they were abandoned in a remote location. They were found by a she-wolf, who instead of killing them, looked after them and fed them with her milk.
Meaning: “Rising star.”
Nicknames: Zori, Zor, Zora, Zoro
Detail: The future of our universe rests in the hands of three young women, the Zorya. The most important task of these heavenly Slavic stunners is to guard over the doomsday dog who tries to eat the constellation Ursa Minor (the little bear). If the dog ever breaks free from the chain, the universe will end.
In ancient Slavic mythology, the Zorya are the guardian goddesses of sky and light. There was the morning star (Utrennyaya); the evening star (Vechernyaya); and the midnight Zorya (Polunochnaya).
