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.

"Ward, you were a little hard on the Beaver last night." Gotta love it.

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.
