    Name Meaning

    German and Danish: ethnic name for a Wend, Middle High German wind(e). The Wends (also known as Sorbians) once occupied a large area of northeastern Germany (extending as far west as Lüneburg, with an area called Wendland), and many German place names and surnames are of Wendish origin. Their Slavic language is still spoken in the eastern part of Germany, around Bautzen and Cottbus.
