Description:
Wendy is a given name generally given to females in English-speaking countries.

The name is found in United States records from the 19th century; Wendy Gram, a female resident of Ohio, was born in 1828, and the name Wendy appeared over twenty times in the U.S. Census of 1880. In Britain, Wendy appeared as a boy's name in the 1881 census of England, and was occasionally used as a nickname for the Welsh Gwendolyn. However, its popularity as a girl's name is attributed to the character Wendy Darling from the 1904 play Peter Pan and its 1911 novelization Peter and Wendy by J. M. Barrie. at The Straight DopePatrick Hanks and Flavia Hodges, Dictionary of First Names, 1990 The name was inspired by young Margaret Henley, daughter of Barrie's friend W. E. Henley. With the common childhood difficulty pronouncing Rs, Margaret reportedly used to call him 'my fwiendy-wendy'.

The name Wendy is sometimes considered a variation of the name Wanda.

Various Chinese rulers have held the name and title Emperor Wen, which in Chinese is read Wen(-)di (文帝). Chinese women with the same or similar-sounding characters as their given names often Anglicise their names as Wendi or Wendy (e.g. Wendi Deng, Wendy Kweh).
