Wendy's was founded by Dave Thomas in Columbus, Ohio in 1969.
Business Insider says that a new blog post, written by Dave's daughter, Wendy Thomas on Friday, explains how he named the famous restauraunt.
Wendy says that her dad tried all five of his children's names for the restaurant, before deciding on his daughter Melinda's nickname, Wendy.
To capture the brand's iconic logo Dave told Wendy and her sister to put their hair in ponytails.
He said, 'Yep, it's going to be Wendy's Old-Fashioned Hamburgers."
But Wendy says that her dad later regretted the naming decision and apologized to his daughter before he died in 2002.
She wrote ""He explained, 'I should've just named it after myself, because it put a lot of pressure on you."
Today there are over 6,700 Wendy's locations worldwide.
