If you have a feeling baby has a unique stand-out personality, why not honor their individuality with the name Wednesday? Though it's no surprise that this feminine name of German origin means "Wednesday," it may surprise you to find out where "Wednesday" came from in the first place. This name is derived from the god Woden, who was the German god of war and wisdom, sure to help guide the way for baby in life. This god was thanked by the Anglo-Saxons for the ancient runes they used in their writing, and so they named a day after him*—*Woden's day. This moniker has its obvious connotations with Wednesday Addams, making it a fitting choice for babies born around Halloween. We have no doubt in the world that your little Wednesday will be just as influential and loved.
