According to folklore, every full Moon has a special name.  There's the Wolf Moon, the Snow Moon, the Worm Moon,  the Sprouting Grass Moon,  the Flower Moon,  the Strawberry Moon, the Thunder Moon,  the Sturgeon Moon, the Harvest Moon, the Hunter's Moon, the Beaver Moon, and the Long Night's Moon. Each name tells us something about the season or month in which the full Moon appears.

I've done some mooning in my time, but I've never heard of most of those moonages. I guess I'm not up to snuff on folklore.

I'm kind of curious about that Beaver Moon, though.

I've heard of and seen the women in the moon, Rabbit and man. But, Beaver? Must be on the dark side of the moon.

The Beaver Moon is an Oregon thing. Which isn't to say anything about the Duck Moon. Both are unique to Oregon.

That's what I was hoping...well, not really bad. Just the barely socially acceptable side of naughty. Twisted Evil 

You have to admit, it's fertile ground.

The Beaver Moon comes the month after the Wally Moon. The month after the Beaver Moon is the Eddie Haskell Moon.

And nobody ever suspected that "Beaver Cleaver" was a joke that was going over their heads.

Canadian's got it down, Bd.



Pretty much every culture had names for the varous moon phases of the year, usually associating them with aguricultural seasons.  The ones we seem to hear the most about are the one's from our cultural realm.  In East Asia, or the Pacific Islands, I'm sure they have totally different names for the various moons.
