The name Beowulf is a boy's name of English origin meaning "bee wolf". Beowulf and is often added to user-created lists like Names I love but will not be using and discussed in our forums with posts like "Quick Question Thread?!".
From the experts:
This ancient name is that of the hero of the epic Beowulf, which is thought to be the oldest-ever poem in English lit written in the vernacular. J. R. R. Tolkien used it as one of his inspirations for The Lord of the Rings. Certainly a weighty if historically relevant choice, but usable for a modern baby? Even with the possible nickname Wolfie, it would be a challenging name to bear.
