(f) First used by J. M. Barrie in his Peter Pan
(1904). Originally Wendy was a nickname for Barrie him-
self, after a little girl referred to him as ‘friendy-wendy.’
The name became very popular in England and Wales from 1945-65.
It was fairly well used in Scotland during the same period, but
now seems to be less popular with young parents.
