I really like it, which Winnie as a nickname.

What do you think?

I love it

Not keen, sorry

I love Winnie as a nick name but not sure about Winifred tbh...

I love Winnie, but not Winifred.

Winnie Mandela is unfortunate I suppose, but I still like it.

I'd be worried about winnie the pooh - kids and poo jokes

JackieNo Fri 25-Jun-10 19:48:31

I don't think I like it - it says Winnie the pooh, or Winnie the Witch to me, or Winston Churchill.

I love Winifred, with Freda as a nickname.

Hideous. Not all old lady names should be revived.

'T'was my gran's name. She hated it. She would have been 98 yesterday. I was going to give it to DD as a middle name, but Mum and Gran both talked me out of it!

Sorry- don't like it!! It screams 'old lady' and agree with the Pooh jokes

LifeOfKate Sun 27-Jun-10 21:00:21

I like it. My grandmother was called Winefred and if we ever have a DD, it will be her middle name

EricNorthmansmistress Sun 27-Jun-10 21:36:58

Don't do it. My mum is Winifred - it was old fashioned when she was a girl and she hated it. She got called Fred and Winnie the Pooh and still doesn't like it much (though she goes by Wini - I prefer it to Winnie if you really must)

LiquoriceLila Sun 27-Jun-10 22:14:52

Awful sorry

Really don't like it, sorry.
