In the July 30 issue of The New Yorker, Joan Blake of Southern Pines, North Carolina shares the story of how Wednesday Addams got her name:
It was a pleasure to see a copy of Charles Addams’s painting “An Addams Family Holiday” printed in the magazine (Sketchbook, July 9th & 16th). I met Addams in New York more than fifty years ago. I lived in North Carolina, but had travelled to the city for a court case involving the custody of my children. I was staying with my college roommate, and she threw a large party, which Addams attended. I was so depressed that I sat on the couch all evening. Addams sat down beside me and asked what was wrong. I told him. He took my arm, walked me to the elevator, and took me to P. J. Clarke’s.

I said, “Wednesday—Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” And Wednesday became her name.
