My daughter's middle name is Summer, she was born in Summer. I want to do the same for my son - he is due in December! Thoughts on Winter as a middle name, for a boy?

Like it!

Sophronia Sun 20-Nov-16 20:47:00

I like it too

I quite like it too.

I'd expect a girl if it was a first name, but I don't think it would be an issue for a middle name.

RebelRogue Sun 20-Nov-16 20:55:00

AllI can think think of is "Winter is coming"

I like it. But would use Wynter or Wyn for a boy.

Forgot to say my son has 'Wyn' as one of his middle names after my grandmother who is 'Wynifred'

Cute name but he might get a bit of a hard time at school once he's older! Sounds more of a girls name.

Gorgeous as a middle name

PunkrockerGirl Sun 20-Nov-16 21:11:47

Awful. It's a season, not a christian name.

Ellieboolou27 Sun 20-Nov-16 21:11:48

Sounds like girls name but that's maybe due to having a friend called win (winnifred).
Not keen tbh

BabyBoyDecember Sun 20-Nov-16 21:12:09

Wynter is nice, but I'd like it to actually be the season smile

Ellieboolou27 Sun 20-Nov-16 21:13:06

Oh realised it was a second name, meh nobody really cares about them so sure it will be fine

BabyBoyDecember Sun 20-Nov-16 21:13:13

My daughter has the middle name Summer, also a season, so that's not an issue to me! grin

No it's really, really not.
I love it when the op suggests a really shit name and posters pile on suggesting variations/different spellings of said name. No, swapping a few letters round will never detract from the fact that it's an awful, ridiculous, made up name hmm
Out of interest, as we're talking about naming children after seasons, does anyone call their child 'Spring'?

Bellaposy Sun 20-Nov-16 21:36:17

I like it for a middle name!

PurpleDaisies Sun 20-Nov-16 21:36:38

I don't like it at all.

BabyBoyDecember Sun 20-Nov-16 21:36:41

If my daughter was born in Spring, her middle name would have been Spring.

pieceofpurplesky Sun 20-Nov-16 21:37:48

I can only think of Winter is coming (like pp).

AddToBasket Sun 20-Nov-16 21:38:00

I was going to say that I loved it but then I saw RebelRouge's post and, yeah, I think best not to.

YoScienceBitch Sun 20-Nov-16 21:40:05

Love it

AllPowerfulLizardPerson Sun 20-Nov-16 21:40:34

It was a boy's name in Victorian times, then dropped out of use.

No reason not to give it to a boy, and 'Summer is coming' (or icumen in, if you prefer the Shakespearian version) is just as common a phrase and doesn't seem to be a problem for that season name.

pieceofpurplesky Sun 20-Nov-16 21:46:16

Summer incumin though is not as popular at the moment as winter is coming .... in true Shakespeare style there are puns everywhere about the phrase

I liked it until you said about matching it to your dds name. Really don't like that matching family name thing.
