Wind is a noun. Windy is an adjective. In your sentence, you are talking about something, an object, so it's "wind".

One can imagine a girl named Windy, who is strong.

Excuse me please. There is a strong Windy blowing on the door. May I let her in, sir? :lol::lol::lol:

Though grammatically correct, looks like a funny sort of nonsense.

Fortunately, we haven't got Windy as a person's name among the options.;-)

There is a very strong wind blowing = A very strong wind is blowing there, where 'wind', a noun, is the subject, which can't be an adjective such as 'windy'.

[h=2]There's a very strong ____ blowing[/h]

The correct answer is Wind.
There's a very strong wind blowing.

I have searched about the meaning of "Windy" that means having a lot of wind.

On Google
dictionary has two meanings:

a. Windy: having a lot of wind
b. Windy: having some wind.
