What's In a Name? -- Wendy

According to Our Babynamer, Wendy has been declining since its peak in the 1980s. Jezebel examined the name even further, claiming Wendys are both "blessed and cursed with kindness", sighting famous Wendys such as Moira Angela Darling (Peter Pan), and the red-haired cartoon who serves you Frosties and Hot Stuffed Baked Potatoes.

So, is Wendy due for a comeback? Do you know any Wendys -- and are they, as Jezebel writes, "kind and nurturing... there to help the lost boy -- or girl -- in all of us"?

Check out the rest of Jezebel's name assessments from Anna to Valerie. They make excellent accompaniments to our extensive baby namer.
