This name generator will give you ten random names for wolves appropriate for Minecraft universes.
The word 'werewolf' is at first derived from a late medieval English word. Still, the word 'lycanthropy' – meaning both the capacity to transform into a wolf and the act of doing so – is great older, dating from the Ancient Greek word ukánthropos, which was used to describe certain clinical symptoms of wild behaviour. There have been myths of men capable of transforming themselves into wolves in the Greek and Roman eras. Still, the modern concept of werewolves didn't start appearing until the 14th Century in early Europe. It's largely held that this had plenty to do with the presence of wolves in various areas of Europe as a dangerous carnivore and the importance of the wolf in various German heathen traditions. Soon rumours of men being capable of turning themselves into wolves were spreading like wildfire.
Werewolf mythology shortly split into two distinct types – the 'Germanic' werewolf, which was rather strongly associated with the fear and suspicion surrounding witchcraft and witches, and the 'Slavic' werewolf, which was more closely associated with vampires or ghosts.
Since then, werewolf illustrations have often split between menacing threats and more sympathetic portrayals, often playing heavily into metaphors like suppressed anger, the changes brought about by puberty or distinction.
Wolves are found in forests and various taigas, usually in packs, and can often be seen chasing skeletons or hunting other mobs. They can tame them by feeding them bones, which offers them a collar you can dye. Once broken, wolves will follow you unless you make them sit down. They'll also protect you in case of all mobs you attack and who attack you.
Wolves can also be named using name tags. This name generator provides a wide range of wolf names, including Minecraft related easter eggs and real-life names to offer plenty of motivation for your wolf pals.
