WOAH. Wait. Wendy...

is short for GWENDOLYN??

Is this common knowledge? I mean, it makes sense. But I had no idea. It's just this kind of shit that makes me feel like such an idiot. Seriously. Does everyone know this?

I'm floored.

Hmm... I always thought Wendy was its own name.

Or short for "Wendathon."

I didn't know either.

Nope. Thought Wendy was short for Wendy. Um, or was just the same. Yes.

if that were the case there wouldn't be any wendys...bc no sane person names their kid Gwendolyn. It's not right...past the year 1375. that's an exact date, btw.
