I have always heard that my name was invented by the author of Peter Pan.   here is an article I found...


Gender: Feminine
Usage: English
Pronounced: WEN-dee  

Probably first used in J. M. Barrie's play 'Peter Pan' in 1904. It was from the nickname fwendy "friend", given to the author by a young friend. However, there is some evidence that the name may have been used prior to the play, in which case it could be related to the Welsh name GWENDOLEN or other names beginning with element gwen meaning "white, fair, blessed".


Gender; Feminine

Usage; Welsh English

Pronounced; GWEN-do-len

Means "white ring", derived from the Welch Elements gwen "white, fair, blessed" and dolen "ring"


Numerologically, this name is reduced to the number 8 - which represents Executive ability, management, power, materiality, unscrupulousness.  Practical endeavors, status oriented, power-seeking, high-material goals.  MONEY.  Indicates a positive change of mind or status because the beneficial qualities of the number 8 are rarely diluted.

Makes me wonder.... I was supposed to be a Sagittarius.  But my parents picked this name for if I was going to be a girl, and I was born a Capricorn instead!
