Old German name meaning noble wolf. Perhaps something like Wolf King.

Another Aëdon boasted that the love between she and her lover was greater than that between Hera and Zeus and Eris was called in to create strife between them. The whole family got involved and eventually were turned into various birds. Aëdon, of course, was the nightingale.
