Slightly wacky, but not in a terrible way. It's better to be Wanda than to be Jessleigh...
Wanda is the mom on the comics 'Baby Blues'.
Don't forget Wanda Li.
I love the name Wanda. It sounds so magical and fun and as a Marvel fan it makes me think of Wanda Maximoff who is the most powerful Avenger! I would definitely name my daughter Wanda! It’s an amazing name!
I used to associate this name with Wanda from Fairly Odd Parents. Not the kind of name I'd personally use, as it reminded me so much of a cartoon, in which it was used in a punny way, but I still loved to run into real usage of it. It was quirky and unusual but with a plain sound and an overall vintage vibe. I now heavily associate this name with a show I never even saw far more than the show I did, and if I never hear or see this name again, I'll be very happy.
When I hear this name I think of Wanda Maximoff, and I think she is the COOLEST! She one of my favorite Avengers with Natasha Romanoff too. (I do make an exception because Gamora isn’t one of my all time faves but she is a guardian of the Galaxy) if you were thinking of naming your child this, I say that you should!
Wanda, what a beautiful name. I love it so much. Wanda Maximoff has the greatest name ever. For all the Wanda's who think their name is ugly, it's not, it's beautiful and you should be so happy to have such a wonderful name.
It is kinda dorky, but in a cute way.
Wanda is Wayne’s wife from the movie Hotel Transylvania.
I used to watch The Fairly Odd Parents but I stopped due to my religious beliefs. However, I still like this name, and if I create a fictional franchise in the future, I might name a prominent girl Wanda.
I'm Australian, I'm a Wanda. Ugly is as says/does. Wan da not Wand er. Syllables/grammar. Grammar not gramma, the last one is a squash, the first how we write/speak. English lessons come in handy even for those of us where it is our language of origin.
Not very pretty.
I think of Wanda Maximoff when I think of this name so to me it seems badass or magical.
Fairly Odd Parents is the reason I like this name.
I’m a Wanda and I see a lot of negative comments from people judging without knowing the person. The same can be said about them. How many people are in jail and happen to have anyone’s name on this message board. It’s so ridiculous. Your character is what makes you and how you treat others - not your name. You can have the sweetest name and be a con artist and a low life.
I'm Australian & Wanda just sounds like how we'd say wander but other than that, I don't care for the name.
I just think the name Wanda sounds so ugly... just my opinion.
In 2018, 53 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Wanda who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 238th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
It is dated to mid-20th century babies, but is basically a good name, and will probably come back into style one day. My coworker Wanda is around 55 years old and she is charming and generous. I do not understand why people have to say such rude things like "ghetto," "redneck," and "hillbilly." Those are human beings you're talking about. It only reflects horribly on YOU to call people such slurs.
Wanda sounds really old fashioned.
I think it’s a cute name. I also have a whale shark stuffed animal named Wanda.
A famous bearer of the name is Wanda Maximoff, Scarlet Witch from Marvel's Comics and Cinematic Universe.

Wanda Osiris was an Italian revue soubrette, actress and singer. Born Anna Menzio in Rome, the daughter of a groom, she studied violin at a young age. She debuted on stage in 1923, in the revue Osvaldo mio mi fai morire. She was the major diva of the Italian revue between 1930s and 1950s, until a new type of soubrette, more saucy and comical, surfaced. She retired in 1975 and died in 1994 of a heart attack at the age of 89.
A lot of my Polish relatives had this name.
The name Wanda was given to 24 girls born in the US in 2015.
I'm a Wanda. I've never really enjoyed the name until recently. Nicknames throughout middle school were "Vonda, Honda, Hyundai, Wanders," Didn't really bother me at all. It just felt like such a 'blah' and meaningless name. Oh, and everybody would ask, "Have you seen the movie, A Fish Called Wanda?" That was probably the most irritating. Because I hadn't and didn't care to either. I'm not sure if people would ask that these days, being that it's such an old movie?
My parents named me after Polish harpsichordist, Wanda Landowska. I appreciate it so much more than being named Mary.
Though rarely, it is used in Ukraine too.
In the book series 'Magic School Bus', there's a Chinese-American girl named Wanda. She's very challenging in positive way, grand and full of self-confident. I got good image of name Wanda from her. :) Another famous Wanda would be the female fairy from The Fairly Oddparents.
"Thank you" to all of you who expressed positive comments to the name "Wanda". My Dad chose this name for me 68 years ago! I am a very sweet person and am referred to as "Grandmother" by two precious granddaughters and several other grandchildren who love me because their Mom chose to marry one of my sons! If this is your name, wear it with pride as I do!
Wanda Gág (1893-1946) was the author of the children's book Millions of Cats.
I love this name! It reminds me of Wanda Petronski from "The Hundred Dresses", a book I enjoy. :)
There's a beach called Wanda Beach.
Unique and magical sounding. I'd use it.
It sounds like Elmer Fudd trying to say "Rhonda."
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.
The heroine of "Venus in Furs" by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch.
Wanda Sykes (b. March 7, 1964) is an American comedian and actress.
Wanda is the name of the heroine in the beloved children's book "The Hundred Dresses," written by Eleanor Estes and illustrated by Louis Slobodkin.
British actress Wanda Ventham (born 1939).
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. :)
I don't like this name. It sounds like the name of a mean old lady.
Wanda Maximoff of Marvel Comics, better known as the Scarlet Witch.
I like this name, but whenever I hear it I picture Wanda from The Fairly OddParents yelling "COSMO! YOU IDIOT!"
Wanda is actually the nickname for the character Wanderer in Stephenie Meyer's novel "The Host".
Wanda is the name of one of the students in Ms. Frizzle's class in the popular TV show 'The Magic School Bus'.
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.
Wanda is the name of an Oriental student in Joanna Cole's Magic School Bus series. Also, an adult character on the children's show Wishbone is named Wanda.
Wanda was the protagonist of Nobel-prize winning German novelist Gerhart Hauptmann's 1926 novel, "Wanda, der Dämon." This novel was made into a movie in 1952. The name is not uncommon in Germany.
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!
Wanda is one of Timmy's fairy godparents on the Fairly OddParents, and Wanda Maximoff is the Scarlet Witch.
This isn't one of my favorite names, it is cold and unfriendly sounding.
Wanda Landowska, Polish-born harpsichordist and pianist (pronounced VAHN-dah Lahn-DOFF-skah).
In Poland, it's pronounced VAHN-duh.
There was the film A Fish Called Wanda in 1988. Wanda wasn't only a fish, actress Jamie Lee Curtis also played a character called Wanda.
It means shepardess or roamer.
That makes sense - Wanda meaning roamer. Wanda sounds like wander.
