Meaning & Origins

This name was apparently coined by the playwright J. M. Barrie, who used it for the ‘little mother’ in his play Peter Pan (1904). He took it from the nickname Fwendy-Wendy (i.e. ‘friend’) used for him by a child acquaintance, Margaret Henley. It has also been suggested that this name may have originated as a pet form of Gwendolen. After peaking in the 1960s, use of the name declined quite rapidly.
172nd in the U.S.
English: 1. variant spelling of Job. 2. nickname from Old French job, joppe ‘sorry wretch’, ‘fool’ (perhaps a transferred application of the name of the Biblical character). 3. from Middle English jubbe, jobbe ‘vessel containing four gallons’, hence perhaps a metonymic occupational name for a cooper. It could also have been a nickname for a heavy drinker or for a tubby person. 4. metonymic occupational name for a maker or seller (or nickname for a wearer) of the long woolen garment known in Middle English and Old French as a jube or jupe. This word ultimately derives from Arabic.
