|My WADEY Ancestry|
The commonest alternative spelling is a toss up between WADIE & WADY. But there are a number of other varieties I have come across:
There appears to be a geographical split
to these variations. WAD(E)Y is much more common in
the south of England whereas WADD(E)Y & WAD(D)IE
are more likely to be found in the north of England & Scotland.
