Meaning:The tribe of the Vandals
Wanda is a feminine name of Polish origin, meaning "from the Vandal tribe." The Vandals or the Wends were an ancient Slavic tribe who lived near Germanic settlements. This name became famous in Poland due to the legend of Princess Wanda, the daughter of the founder of Kraków—the former capital of Poland. Once her father, Krakus, passed, Princess Wanda assumed her father's position as leader of the Vandals. Wanda has recently become particularly popular due to the release of Marvel's WandaVision, starring the Avengers character Wanda Maximoff. Known for her immense power and energy manipulation abilities, she is a well-loved character in the Marvel franchise. Wanda is a fabled name with legendary origins that will surely inspire baby to forge an extraordinary path of their own.
