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.

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.

This name is borne by the character Winnie (Winifred) Foster in Tuck Everlasting.... Possibly why I like it so much.
