Comments for WILHELMINA:

Pronounced Wele-mee-na, Queen of the Netherlands. Though she sought refuge in England in WW2, she still was consistant in encouraging the Dutch resistance.

Tbird is quite correct, in the Netherlands we pronounce it as: Will-hell-MEEN-ah.

This name isn't often used in Spanish-speaking countries, but it's pronounced Wih-lehl-mih-nah. (The 'h' is not pronounced in Spanish.) I like this name, but a nickname is Willa, Wila in Spanish, which is slang for "prostitute". :(

Spanish speaking countries usually spell it as "GUILLERMINA" pronounced gee-yer-MI-na. It's very rare, its masculine form is more common. I'm from a Spanish speaking country, take my word not BornOnRoshHashanah, don't know where in the world does Wila means that!

Very outdated and elderly name.

I used to think this name was so old sounding -- but now I think it'd be really adorable on a little girl. :)

This name is extremely hard to pronounce for me. Oddly enough I still like it.

My mind goes blank just looking at the name. Hard to decide on its pronunciation. Very odd, very weird, very unpleasant name. What are the shorter versions? "Wil", or "Mina"? Whatever else you make out of it is stupid sounding and ugly.
-- MyFartsSmellGood  7/3/2011
Wilhelmina is so pretty. Nicknames Willa, Willow, Mina, Minka and Minnie.
-- emilymaryjane  12/29/2011
I think this name is strong and elegant and has plenty of cute nicknames.

I really do love this name but I'm not sure my love of the name would be shared by everyone else.

I am learning German, and often a word / name starting with ' W ' is said as the English letter ' V ', even words we recognize. ( Such as 'Wind' )

Wilhelmina "Mina" Wylie was one of the first Australian female representatives at the Olympics. Mina won a silver; she was beaten by fellow Australian and friend Sarah "Fanny" Durack.

This name makes me think of Wilhelmina Slater from Ugly Betty; beautiful, witty and strong minded.
