Even a man who is pure in heart
and says his prayers by night,
may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
and the autumn moon is bright.

― Jenny Williams in The Wolf Man
Human beings have always been excited and intrigued by the domain of the supernatural, and when it comes to dreadful and fearsome creatures, the human imagination seems to elevate to an altogether different level. It is, in fact, their nightmarish appearance, their fearfulness quotient, and their extramundane abilities such as shapeshifting, which tend to add to their popular appeal. The werewolf is one such creature that tends to stir our senses every time we read or watch a movie based on the it. Legends tell us that werewolf is essentially a man who shape shifts into a wolf every full moon night, owing to a dreadful curse. Moreover, whenever a werewolf bites another human being, the curse gets transferred onto the latter as he/she also turns into a werewolf. While scientific opinion about the creature asserts that werewolves only exist in fictional tales and have nothing to do whatsoever with the real world, there are a number of other people, who tend to believe in the myth and also claim to have sighted the creature(s) at some point in their lives. Furthermore, werewolves are also being studied by cryptozoologists throughout the world; however, no sufficient evidence to prove their existence have ever been found till date.

We have ample amount of literature and movies on these, albeit mythical creatures, and it is absolutely needless to say that there have been numerous famous fictional werewolves. These characters have been influencing and inspiring people, especially children, over the ages, mainly owing to their unparalleled power and strength. Those bitten by the so-called "werewolf bug" are always on a lookout for all major and minor bits of information about these creatures. This Penlighten article brings you some of the cool werewolf names and their meanings.
