User comments for Winifred (Famous Bearer Only)

Dora Winifred "D.W." Read is the little sister to Arthur Read, the main character on the PBS children's show, Arthur. Everybody refers to her as 'D.W.' rather than her full name.

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

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.

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".

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.

This name was used by Natalie Babbit in her book "Tuck Everlasting." Winifred Foster was the heroine's name. Her nickname was Winnie.
