It sounds like the noise a horse makes, and then there's the Winnie-the-Pooh association. I don't know which one is worse.

I won't go into details, but it could lead to unpleasant nicknames, because of the bear.

I think Winnie is a very awesome sounding nickname. Too bad about the children's book character taking it over.

It's supposed to be a girls name, specifically. How come the old-man sounding bear got the name? Oh, well. What's done is done.

Winnie is not only a female name; it is masculine too. This can be a nickname for names such as: Winston, Edwin, Darwin, etc. OR simply a nickname for the Welsh name "Wyn".

How is it a bad idea to name a child (regardless of it being a girl or a boy) Winnie? Winnie has a wonderful meaning and no matter how hard you try picking the perfect name, in the future your child will definitely come across some mean people who will easily manage to come up with cruel insults and hurl them non-stop mercilessly. Sadly, name calling has existed for a long time and it is difficult to completely avoid them in one's life. I have met people with what you could call "safe", "normal" names such as Jamie, Hannah, Marcus etc. And they've all been teased not due to their names, but because of other factors based on their looks, culture, habits, weaknesses etc.

I love this name- don't be put off because of Winnie the Pooh! =)

I like the name Winnie. It's a cute old fashioned name that I can see on a little girl as well as a full grown woman.
