wesangel and I started talking about name origins today and I told her that I've heard that her name never existed before "Peter Pan" was written because the author just made it up as the story was written..but she heard that it was a German name and came outta "Gwendolyn" so I thought, what a great excuse to do a poll. :P

Poll #327760 name origin

Which is the true origin of the name Wendy/Wendi?
