Winning Names

Jimmy Fallon’s recent baby news has us all thinking about the sweet vintage sound of Winnie. While Winnie may be an unusual choice right now, it fits right in with other old-fashioned names that have a nickname feel, like Hattie and Millie. Winnie is nice on its own, but there are a surprising amount of names that lend themselves well to a “winning” little nickname. Here are a few interesting options that we think are winners as well.

  • Windy - a nature name
  • Winifred - this used to be the most common way to arrive at the nickname Winnie
  • Winslow - a surname and a place name
  • Winola - an unusual German name 
  • Winona - a Native American name meaning “firstborn daughter”
  • Winsome - a word name that fits in with some of the virtue names
  • Winter - a nature name that newly appeared in the top 1,000
  • Wynne, Wynn - a short and sweet Welsh name
Do you like the name Winnie? Would you prefer it on its own, or as a nickname for one of the names above?

There is a reporter on NPR named Windsor Johnston. I love that name and Winnie is a perfect nickname.

Alimentation riche en fibre : j’insiste toujours sur ce point là, vous n’avez aucune idée sur l’importance de ces derniers dans le programme de traitement : Les fibres aident à réduire le gonflement et à fortifier non pas seulement le canal anal mais aussi tout l’organisme. Cela est essentiel à la fois pour la prévention et un traitement efficace , puisque ce type de déformation est la principale cause de la maladie .
