Meaning:Wolf shield
Consider the name Randal for the newest cub in your pack! A distinctive boy’s name of Old German origin, Randal means “wolf shield.” As a respelling of Randall, this version might have one less letter, but it makes up for any loss in characters with a wealth of character. The name also derives from the German Randwolf, where rand means “shield” or “rim,” and wolf means “wolf.” Wolves and shields may not seem like they have very much in common on first glance, but they are both inherently protective in nature. The name Randal is, therefore, also sure to act as armor for your little one. Ray, Rand, and Dale are all strong nickname choices.
