Named in honor of the well-known Polish and Soviet writer Wanda Wasilewska (1905–1964). In the USSR her name is Wasilewskaya. Another interpretation says that Wanda was a mythic person in ancient Polish annals. Daughter of Krakus or Krak, she was the legendary founder of Cracow. (N. S. Chernykh; A. Paluźie-Borrell)
