Wolves survive because they embody a fierceness that frightens their enemies and a passion that sustains their loved ones. According to Vuk Karadžić–the father of the study of Serbian folklore–in this Slavic tradition, a woman who had lost several babies in succession would name her newborn son Vuk (translated: wolf), because it was believed that the witches, who “ate” the babies, were afraid to attack the wolves.
