Top 5 names Gomez Addams gave Wednesday in the Netflix series:
Wednesday Addams has largely become known to the world as the deadpan character made famous through her appearances in the Addams Family franchise. While fans would instinctively know her name and look, they’re often unaware of lesser-known aliases her father, Gomez lovingly bestowed on Wednesday, such as:
- ‘My Little Viper’ – this one is my favorite as it signals her slyness and ability to surprise opponents even when outnumbered!
- ‘My Little Storm Cloud’
- ‘My Little Death Trap’
- ‘Our Little Scorpion’
- ‘My Little Tormenta’
While Wednesday was certainly happy to have Gomez’s love and attention, it could be argued that she took issue with such doting nicknames. It’s no wonder we caught Wednesday rolling her eyes at the use of these terms more than once!
Other nicknames that were given to Wednesday in the Netflix series:
In the Wednesday Addams Netflix series, Wednesday tends to get under people’s skin and provoke interesting reactions which have resulted in a wide range of nicknames. Here are just a few of ‘Wednesday’s nicknames:
- ‘Grim Reaper Barbie’ – Tyler
- My Pig-Tailed Protégé’ – Uncle Fester
- ‘My Little Rain Cloud’ – Morticia
- ‘Velma’ – Sheriff Galpin
Any of these names as well as names of other characters in the series would be perfect for these place cards. Ask your guests who they prefer or have some fun and assign them based on your view of their personality!

First, cut your Wednesday nickname out in white vinyl (or alternatively use gothic-style letter stickers). I used a font I purchased from Etsy called Full of Woe, it replicates closely the font used in the Wednesday Netflix series.
Next, tie a length of black & white checkered ribbon around the top of the blade handle. Trim to preference.
Then, tie a length of black tinsel (or alternatively yarn or lace) around the top of the blade handle. Trim to preference.
Finally, glue a spider to the blade.
