User comments for Winifred
This was the name of the lead witch in the Disney movie Hocus Pocus.
This name was used by Natalie Babbit in her book "Tuck Everlasting." Winifred Foster was the heroine's name. Her nickname was Winnie.
There's also Winifred on Angel. She was called Fred for short. I rather like it. People don't realize that old is becoming the new again.
Winifred is the heroine in the musical comedy, "Once Upon A Mattress", which among other memorable songs has a tune called "A Girl Named Fred".
I don't know if you guys remember, but there was an elephant lady called Winifred in The Jungle Book. I heard the name there first, then in Mary Poppins. I think it's a pretty good middle name, can be shortened to W.
British novelist Winifred Holtby
Fictional character Winifred Forsyte in John Galsworthy's "The Forsyte Saga".
Actress Jacqueline Bisset was born Winifred Jacqueline Fraser-Bisset.
Winifred Ball was the wife of Harvey Ball, the creator of the smiley face. :)
This name is borne by the character Winnie (Winifred) Foster in Tuck Everlasting.... Possibly why I like it so much.
