and Lupine means "one who resembles a wolf" in English, because both words are based off lup(a) which is the Latin for wolf
Lupa can also mean "prostitute", which provides a conflict in the story of the founding of Rome, because Romulus and Remus were raised by "lupa", so we don't know if wolf or prostitute was intended
