Wendy Slinkhard was a witch who wrote at least one book.[2][3] While at Hogwarts, she studied under Horace Slughorn, and was selected to join the Slug Club. Slughorn kept a picture of the two, showing Wendy signing a copy of her book to Slughorn. [4]

Wendy may be related to Wilbert Slinkhard, the author of Defensive Magical Theory.

Behind the scenes

Etymology

In the case of the character from J. M. Barrie's play Peter Pan (1904), the name "Wendy" was created from the nickname fwendy "friend", given to the author by a young friend. However, the name was used prior to the play (rarely), in which case it could be related to the Welsh name Gwendolen and other names beginning with the element gwen meaning "white, fair, blessed".

Notes and references

  1. Horace Slughorn resigned from his teaching position in 1981, meaning Slinkhard would have been a member of the Slug Club by at least then.
