Wendy was invented by Sir James Barrie in 1904 for the big sister charater in his play Peter Pan; he supposedly took it from the nickname Fwendy-Wendy that he was called by a young girl acquaintance. Wendy's heyday was once upon a time; it's now seen as bouncy and peppy -- the perfect babysitter (or mom) name.
