That makes sense - Wanda meaning roamer. Wanda sounds like wander.

Wanda first appeared in the top 1,000 names in the United States in the 1880s, perhaps owing to the Ouida novel 'Wanda' which was written and published in 1883, and the name rose from there to its peak of popularity in 1930 (50th position). However, in recent decades the name tailed off somewhat, and has once again been out of the top 1,000 names since the early 1990s. The 1988 film 'A Fish Called Wanda' cannot have helped!

The name is borderline trashy and sounds annoying in many people's pronunciation. It sounds like the name of a rather unpleasant and obese middle-aged woman.

I don't like this name. It sounds like the name of a mean old lady.

I don't mind this name, I think it could be a great name on the right person. It has sort of a magical sound about it, possibly because it sounds like "wand", but nevertheless, quite a nice name in reflection. :)

When I was 7, I wanted to name future brother/sister Cosmo and Wanda. I wish I was joking. This name is okay but I can't imagine a little girl named Wanda.

It sounds like Elmer Fudd trying to say "Rhonda."
