Wandy is a gender-neutral name. Related to the name Wanda, it means “the tribe of the Vandals.” The etymology behind vandals remains unclear, although two arguments are put forward. As a derivative of the German adjective wanđaz, it can mean “twisted”, and as a derivative of wendelsǣ, it can be translated as “the Mediterranean Sea_._” Meanwhile, Slavic sources interpret the moniker as “wanderer” or “shepherdess.” Notable namesakes include two Dominican professional baseball pitchers, Wandy Peralta and Wandy Rodriguez, making this name a pretty good catch for your little one!
