The Wolf Moon's name came to be as it was traditionally believed that packs of wolves' howls could be heard more while the full Moon was visible.

The Old Farmer's Almanac dating back to 1792, contained the names of full moons that were derived from Native Americans, Colonial Americans, and European sources, according to Almanac.com. Each full Moon name relates to the month the full Moon occurred in, not just the moon itself.
