From Lunar Wolves to Worms, These Are the Full Moon Names of 2017

Full moon names date back to a few hundred years ago, when Native Americans lived in what is now the northern and eastern United States. Those tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the full moon of every month.

Some variations arose in the names that were assigned to full moons in some months, but generally, the Algonquin tribes, from the New England area in the east to Lake Superior farther west, used the same names.
