Volkov Name Meaning

Russian and Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): patronymic form from Russian volk ‘wolf’. The Russian name is derived from a nickname or older male personal name. The Yiddish name is in some cases an ornamental name, while in other cases it is a habitational name from places called Volkovo or Volki, now in Belarus, which in turn are derived from the name of the animal.
