I like Winston for a boy. I like names of World War 2 figures... Winston, Delano, Truman, and such. This name does sound very British to me.

Not only does this name have a prominent history, it contains "win!" They say your name has an influence on your life; having win in there is bound to do some good.

This is my dog's name. It's a good name for a sassy dog.

This name is so old-fashioned it sounds a little too pompous today. But as a middle name it's great.

Winston is the dog from the show Hannibal. Winston is also one of the friends on New Girl, which is how I found this name.

This name only sounds good on dogs, in my opinion. It also has some really obvious connotations... So yeah, not a fan of this as a human name.

Winston Rothschild III is the owner of Rothschild's Sewage and Septic Sucking Services on The Red Green Show. It's been predicted I'll grow up to work in the same business.

It sounds a bit pompous and pretentious today, even though it hasn't always been that way. The name always reminds me of the misfortunate character Winston Smith in Nineteen Eighty-Four, which is another reason I don't feel like using it on a potential future son.

This name sounds like it would suit someone who was either boring or a bit dim to me. But I don't think Winston Churchill was either of those things, as far as I can tell. I just really don't like the sound.

Winston was John Lennon's given middle name at birth. He was often teased as a child though, being called Winnie, so he legally changed it and became John Ono Lennon after marrying Yoko Ono.
