Velvel is a Hebrew name that means “little wolf.” This name has a fascinating cultural significance in Jewish culture, as wolves were often seen as symbols of cunning and strength. It is believed that Jewish families who lived near forests would often give this name to their sons, in the hopes that they would be as clever and strong as the wolves who lived in the woods. Today, the name Velvel is often given to boys who are expected to be smart and resourceful, with the ability to think on their feet and overcome obstacles.
