All other Slavic languages have retained the older form. Western Slavic languages retained the oldest Slavic form without the vowel: "vlk", "jablko", "vlna", etc. The oldest IE form reamains in Sanskrit "vrk".
Sory Slovak,but where in Serbia do they use Volk??I have been in Serbia many times and only i know it is Vuk,also Montenegrians use the name Vukašin,it is used often,and how about Serbo-Croat surnames Vukosavljević,Vuković,Vukić,Vukelić.....and how about Vuk Obradovič,negative hero from Kosovo battle. The only nations that use VOLK are Macedonians and Slovenians, В'К or ВЪКis used by eastern Macedonians and Bulgarians.
