Fact of the Day: Wendy

Before the 20th century, the name Wendy was quite uncommon. The name became popular after James Matthew Barrie's book Peter Pan which featured a character named Wendy Darling.

  7. I really like that name! I know a girl named Wendy and she is really sweet :)

    Nobody's named Sharon anymore :( People always tell me their grandmother's name is Sharon, or they have a very old aunt named Sharon, but nobody under the age of 65 seems to have this name except for me. I don't dislike my name or anything but I feel like it's an old lady's name haha

  14. I didn't know that the name Wendy was so rare in the past! I've know many Wendys/Wendies? I've especially enjoyed seeing the recent photos of your family, and I hope that your mom is recovering well. It looked like Daisy was playing candlepins which is the kind of bowling I did as a kid in Canada. I couldn't quite see if the ball was small and without holes though.
