Lupophobia – the fear of wolves phobia
If you are afraid of wolves, what is the fear called?
Although you won’t find it in the traditional dictionary, there is an unofficial name for the phobia (severe anxiety or fear) of wolves that many people have – it is called Lupophobia. This is the name that many people use to describe the severe wolf fear that they may possess – and is used in somewhat serious contexts around the webverse.
On a more lighthearted note, there is also a totally made up fictional phobia to describe the very specific fear of being chased around a table by timber wolves on a freshly waxed floor while wearing socks – this phobia was made up by Far Side comics author Gary Larson and is called Luposlipaphobia….this essentially breaks down to “wolf slip fear”.
Luposlipaphobia = Lupo- (wolf) Slipa- (yeah, slip) Phobia (fear)
