Origin:Irish
Meaning:little wolf
Imbued with an enigmatic nature, Faolan is a boy's name of Irish origin, meaning "little wolf." At once, both wild and beautiful, Faolan is rooted in ancient mythos of the Irish werewolves known as the faoladh. Far from monstrous, these shapeshifters were seen as guardians, often called upon by kings during times of war. Yet much like the common wolf, these mythological beings were complex, exhibiting as much fierceness as loyalty. A name of many layers, Faolan is a potent reminder that strength of character comes in various forms, but true power comes in knowing which to feed.
