Other Origin(s):Roman
Meaning:Roman god of fire
Vulcan is a masculine name of Latin origin, which means the "god of fire" in Roman mythology. The god of fire included the fire of volcanoes, deserts, and metalworking, and he is often depicted carrying a blacksmith's hammer. Cretan myth has somewhat disputed its Roman counterpart as they suggest the god of fire was related to Velchanos, the god of nature. In more recent times, Vulcan references are generally found on the Sci-fi channel along with Mr. Spock and his friend William Shatner.
