Howdy ranchers,

I also always thought that it means "walk of (a) wolve". Now that I just looked it up, to my amusement I found out that it may mean also "warrior in animal disguise".


Around the 1950s it was the most popular name in Germany (and maybe Austria as well, don't know) but became rare afterwards. But I don't know the reason why.

Graphical representation here:
http://lexikon.beliebte-vornamen.de/wolfgang.htm

I know several Wolfgangs, but none younger than 30.

By the way the most popular names in 2007 for babies in Germany are Leonie for girls and Leon for boys.
So much for the wolves...


Yours,
Bu.
