Etymology is not yet clear[edit]

it is known very well but forbidden to talk about it...

Volhkov derived from pre Christian Slavic name for the priests (like Druids) of the Old slavic faith; Volhv, Volkhv. In modern times Volkhs are still called Magicians or 3 kings in Christianity in Russia, Ukraine which means that old slavic characters passed into Christian figures; that's why the foreign christian, greek bishops have had less work in the baptism of the old believers; inventing and renaming old characters and giving them christian elements.

  • Everything is pretty much clear, just go and read academic literature and mot marginal junk.--Ymblanter (talk) 15:51, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
