Frisian short form of Germanic names that contain the Gothic element valdan "to reign" (practically the same as wald "rule"). It is known as a masculine name since the 15th century, and as a feminine name since the 20th century. Also, in modern German, the word Wolke means "cloud" (so some German parents use the name for that reason, because they like nature names).The name is borne by the German actress Wolke Hegenbarth.
