Wednesday Addams and her many names

Wednesday Addams is a fictional character created by American cartoonist Charles Addams in his comic strip The Addams Family. In Addams' cartoons, which first appeared in The New Yorker, Wednesday and other members of the family had no names. When the characters were adapted to the 1964 television series, Charles Addams gave her the name "Wednesday", based on the line, "Wednesday's child is full of woe" from the well-known nursery rhyme "Monday's Child". In the TV series, her middle name is "Friday". In the Spanish-language version, her name is Miércoles Addams (Spain [Wednesday in Spanish]) or Merlina Addams (Latin America). In the Brazilian version her name is Wandinha (Little Wanda in Portuguese) and in Italy her name is Mercoledì (Wednesday in Italian).
The baby boy name Merlin is an English, German, and Welsh name of Celtic origin. The name is of the meaning seahill fort. Merlin, in the Arthurian legend, was the famous wizard and advisor to King Arthur. The name Merlina (English and German) is the female equivalent of Merlin.
