A witch, shaman, priestess or woman who practices witchcraft. Wicce is an old Germanic term meaning ‘wise one.’ She cared for the town’s sick with herbs and prophesies. A "wand-bearer", a witch, seer, fortune-teller, wise woman, the Norse equivalent of the Shaman. Seidh practitioners were called Volva.
From the French term, pensée, meaning "to think". Around the 15th century, it was the women who were criticized for "thinking too much". If a young man behaved the same way he was considered effeminate and less of a manly stud than the other men. He was regarded as having no machismo and labeled a sissy. Well, well you namby-pambies looks like you'll grow up to be men with the awesome power to think on your own; a free thinker!
