scottish literature  /  welsh 
This name is a diminutive for Gwendolyn and Gwendolen. It was also used as a surname in Britain from at least the 17th century. However, its popularity as a girl's name is attributed to the character Wendy Darling from the 1904 play Peter Pan and its 1911 novelization Peter and Wendy by J. M. Barrie. Gwendolen and Gwendolyn derives from the Proto-Celtic and Welsh “*uindo- / gwyn dolen”, meaning “fair bow, blessed ring, white ring, who has white eyelashes”. Saint Gwen Teirbron (French: Blanche; Latin: Alba Trimammis or Candida; possibly English: Wite) was a Breton holy woman and wife of Saint Fragan who supposedly lived in the 6th century.
