"I've had so many people misspell my name. Wendall. Windell. Wyndl. Wendill. And I think it's a very old-sounding name. I hate it when people start singing the "Mr. Wendell" song after I tell them my name. My parents picked the worst name for me." May. 2, 2008:

"Ivery aways gone by a different name. People always make fun of it. I'm no fan" May. 3, 2016:
"Yes, I will say being in high school surrounded by people who can't spell my name, including adults, is quite annoying, especially since my last name is also always misspelled, but I believe the name itself makes up for it! I love its meaning and it fits my family's German background nicely. I feel it is uniqe and it is what makes me, me! I wouldn't change my name for anything! Just know other Wendell's, we should take pride in our rare name!" Dec. 19, 2015:
