It is interesting how deep werewolf references really permeate into our culture and language. here’s another example – the word berserk.
The word berserk is derived from the word berserker. Berserkers interestingly enough were wild, aggressive, fierce Norse warriors who wore wolf pelts (or sometimes bear pelts). One of the more famous berserkers – Kveldulf (twilight wolf) – is sometimes referenced as being a werewolf.
