The Wer(e) in Werewulf or german Werwolf comes from the old english or german wer(e) which just means man.
Thats a reason while you might find references to a Mannwolf in some old german texts (Mann being the german versjon of man).

There are other similar names for the Werewulf stemming from nordic and other languages, but all are a combination of man and wulf.
Even the scientific name lycanthrope is a combination of lykos (wolf) and anthropos (man).
