It probably won't get MN approval but I really like it.

I'm afraid it makes me think of 1984

It's a nice, solid sort of name. I imagine a Winston would be sensible and responsible. It's not cutesy and is a name that a boy would grow into.

I love it

Great name.

I don't hate it and I don't love it. I'm indifferent.

The stall holder on Eastenders who has a line once every five years.

Aside from that I don't love it but could get used to it.

I think of it as one of those names that is popular with English butlers but also popular in Jamaica. Like it very much - put it in the same category as Reginald.

Judge Winston.
Dr Winston
Professor Winston.

Solid, no nonsense name.

I like it.

Glad most people like it smile this is definately our top name for a boy atm. We were just worried it may sound a little posh and maybe he would be teased at school

It doesn't sound posh. Winston Smith I think. Isn't 1984 being remade. The bandwagoners might make it trendy (Atticus style).

Winston is an awesome name.

Not posh to me. It's ok, as long as he doesn't get Winnie.

Cool name and due a revival, as all the Winstons I know are of Caribbean extraction and in their 70s. Possibly the Windrush generation were favouring Churchillian/very 'English' names?

(I am also highly amused that the only living Enoch I know is a black anti-racism campaigner.)

I really like it.

Great classic that isn't overused! Love it.
