[wuhn-der-struhk]

I couldn’t find much etymology about this word from an actual source, but it’s fairly easy to figure out if you know the meaning of the bases: Wonder means “A feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something unexpected + struck, the simple past-tense and past-participial of strike, which means “to hit forcefully” - in this case it is used as a participial (i.e. it’s a verb acting as an adjective).  It’s also the name of Taylor Swift’s new fragrance which made it especially hard to research.
