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.
