Wendy: baby girl name meaning and popularity


Sir James Barrie, author of Peter Pan, invented this name, reportedly based on a childhood friend who called him "fwendy" instead of "friend." Wendy is a pretty friendly-sounding name, so maybe yours will live up to that.



Famous people named Wendy:

Novelist Wendy Mass; talk show host Wendy Williams; actress Wendy Davis; Olympic gymnast Wendy Bruce; playwright Wendy Wasserstein.

Fun fact:

The "original" Wendy, from Peter Pan, was given the full name of Wendy Moira Angela Darling.
