Seriously though, is this why people keep asking me whether 'Hedwig' is a boy's name, too? Because I'm sick of telling people no, it isn't - not historically, and not etymologically.

It never occured to me it was a male name.

Of course it didn't. Because you're smart like that!

But there are people who think that because it doesn't end in '-a', it's on a par with such names as Evelyn and Hillary: unisex. Go figure! When it means something like 'woman under the gods' protection in her struggle'?

Oh so it doesn't mean 'woman with hair extensions' then? ;D

Even in the movie it's a woman's name. Hansel takes his mother's name (and passport) when he has the sex change, gets married, and leaves the country...

People are strange. :)

Oh, it's a movie, is it? I had no idea!

I saw my first ever Harry Potter movie last June, and started every time Harry would call to his owl! ;-)

Yes -- "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is the movie in question. :) A very odd musical, but worth seeing.

And I can imagine -- I have a month name and every time that month comes around... ;)
