Here's what Wikipedia has in part, ..."Wolf is a name that is used as a surname, given name, and a name among Germanic-speaking peoples: see Wulf. Names which translate to English "wolf" are also common among many other nations, including many Native American peoples within the current or former extent of the habitat of the gray wolf (essentially all of North America)..."
