Comments for WINTER:

It says that this name is femenine but I have only ever thought of it as masculine. I have heard some people say that it seems quite a depressing name but I disagree. It makes me think of the colours blue and white, and makes me feel very peaceful and calm.

I named my daughter, 'Winter' in 1989. It reminds me of something pure as a fresh snowfall. Virgin white.

I like Summer and Autumn, but for some reason Winter and Spring don't appeal to me. I wonder why all the seasons are listed as feminine.

This name reminds me of happy times of playing in the snow. It is such a sweet and tender name. I love it dearly.

Winter is a very unique name, but I don't think it would be the name of my child.
-- Dogsy  7/29/2006
Winter? Winter? Um, no I don't like It.
-- DannyDan  8/16/2006
A cute nickname for winter could be Winny or some thing like that!
-- Philippa  8/26/2006
I love this name. It's so beautiful and pure. Winter is my favorite time of the year and this name always brings up wonderful childhood memories. I'm seriously considering of naming my child that.

I have also seen it spelled Wynter for a girl.
-- Anonymous User  8/28/2006
I think this is a wonderful name for a girl. So pure and innocent.
-- childdoll  9/12/2006
So pretty and cute. I once saw it kre8tively spelled though, as: Wyntre. Yikes. I do like the spelling Wynter, though.

Winter is the name of the main character of a book (called Winter) by Australian author John Marsden.

This is a nice name. And although I love this name, imagine if your last name was Spring, and you loved the names Winter, Summer, and Autumn? That would stink.
-- Brianna Angela  6/19/2007
It's a beautiful name. It makes me think of purity, beauty, and kindness. There's a simplicity to it that most names don't have. Winter - I love this name very much.
-- Anonymous User  8/14/2007
This name IS beautiful! It would also be an appropriate first or middle name for someone born in the Winter.
-- Taydbug112  9/4/2007
This is one of those rare names ending in -er, along with Amber, Summer, and Piper, that sound feminine. This is my favorite season name, even though it's not my favorite season by a long shot! In fact, I rather dislike winters because of the low temperatures, but I can appreciate the beauty of sunny winter days when powdery snow shimmers on tree tops and on the ground, which are things the name reminds me of. Summer sounds too hippie-ish, youthful, and cheerful. Autumn is overused and occasionally pronounced as ''AH-dum''. Spring doesn't sound right at all. This name sounds serious and mature, but not as gloomy as some might think because if the darkness.
-- slight night shiver  5/13/2008
Eh. It's a nice name, but it sounds too masculine to be listed as female.
-- Jesus_Freak  5/25/2008
My Xbox Live username has been "Winter twilight" for a few years, and I've grown used to being called "Winter". That being said, I really like it! It's one of my favorite names.
-- asforoneday  7/4/2008
I've never liked this as a name, because for me, it's just incredibly impersonal as a name.
-- tiny_clever_outlet  10/4/2008
A highly cliched name in my opinion. I could only assume the parents of a child who was named Winter were the type to never grow up, no offense.
-- LouisXI  10/12/2008
In my opinion, this sounds like it could be used as a boy's name as well as a girl's. It has a subtle sort of sound, and kind of nice.
-- RachelLee  11/18/2008
My name is Winter, and personally I love it even though I hate the season Winter. It's kind of interesting how many people actually ask me how to spell it, though. For some reason no one wants to believe that it's spelled the same way as the season.

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have a daughter named Harlow Winter Kate Madden.
-- emmiix3  2/15/2009
One of the few names that still sound right even after the child as grown up. Winter sounds mature but still feminine, the kind of name that wouldn't make me roll with my eyes. I have the feeling that it will become another overused name, though. Takes the charm from the name.
-- Lethargia  4/9/2009
This is one of my absolute favorite names. Winter's my favorite season too. I named my absolute favorite story character Winter, but he's a guy. It really suits him though, and I like it for either boys or girls. I don't know if I'm going to play with the spelling though. I really love the sound of this name.
-- VampireTears  4/14/2009
There's a character in The Water Mirror series who's named Winter. It's a boy though, and he's ACTUALLY the season of Winter, who's in love with Summer.
-- VampireTears  4/14/2009
I think this is one of those names that would be good on a fictional character but not so much on a real person.
-- neverendingstory  5/4/2009
I think this name is very pretty. It reminds me of snow on evergreen trees. Very pretty and unique name.
-- -Julia-  7/24/2009
Beautiful. My favorite season ever and every time someone would say "Winter" it makes me have the best memories with my sister, my family, and my friends.
-- italiannames  8/16/2009
Winter is my least-favorite season due to the low temperatures, and it sounds a little trashy as a name. Still, at least it looks fine compared to Spring.
-- bananarama  8/21/2009
This name is pretty, but sounds really corny. This is a name you'd find in a romance novel or soap opera.
-- slyboots  11/15/2009
It's nice but overused/becoming overused.
-- Alora  1/2/2010
While I think Winter is a bit overused and sappy, it's also beautiful and suitable for grownups. A lot of holidays are during Winter, and while the name is still secular, that can add meaning if you like.
-- lucyskydiamonds  2/18/2010
I think Winter is a nice name, but I'd prefer to use it as a middle name.
-- Meadow  7/1/2010
This names sounds classic, strong, elegant and refined, yet delicate in a way.
-- luna11  7/25/2010
I dislike Summer and Spring, but Winter gives a more professional, clean appearance than the other names. A nickname could be Win, like Wynn. I really like this name.
-- Dawson  10/3/2010
It's cheesy and tacky. I dislike it.
-- Chrila96  11/19/2010
There are people alive in the world called Winter!? Poor lambs... Cruel parents.
-- insertusernamehere  11/25/2010
I suppose it is a rather pretty name, but it sounds harsh and just the slightest bit unisex. And for the parents who want to use it, please don't go with some kree8tyv spelling like Wyntre or some crap like that.
-- Black_X  7/29/2011
While I like Winter, the season, Winter as name seems odd to me. I guess it's better than Summer though. With certain names it doesn't sound that bad. It could grow on me.
-- GibsonGirl  8/21/2011
It's a little tacky, as all season names are in my opinion, but I still like it a lot. It reminds me of frozen trees in the Winter, very delicate and beautiful. I probably will never end up using it for a child, but it will always be gorgeous to me.
-- K.G Valentina  11/8/2011
I always thought the name sounded more masculine partly because it's similar to Walter but mostly because of male personifications like Old Man Winter and the Winter Warlocke from "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."

I actually used to really like it for a boy.

But I'm in the minority as whenever I hear it's used for a female which to be fair I can see as Autumn and Summer are strictly female. And oddly, as a middle name, I prefer it on girls for some reason.

Winter is the name of a bottlenose dolphin at Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida. She was famous for getting a prosthetic tail after losing her old tail in a crab trap.
-- Bonquiqui  6/2/2012
Winter is a pretty name- even though I despise the season. Summer is the best season, but I dislike the sound; Autumn is a gorgeous season and name, though it's a little cumbersome as there's no nickname; Spring sounds hippie- ish. (Yes, somehow Spring sounds hippie- ish but Winter does not.) Snow would be a better name than Winter, though.
-- threevelvetbullets  9/29/2012
I was named Winter. Yes it took me a while to grow into it but I did. I was never picked on and everyone I met loved it. It is a strange name but I am proud to have it. It's unique, not one of those names you hear about often. I have never met anyone else with my name. It is both masculine and feminine, but I think it has a classy touch.
-- Anonymous User  9/29/2012
I really like this for a first or middle name. Its pretty and not common. Though it might be odd to name your child this if you live in a warm state like Florida or Arizona. Nonetheless, a very beautiful name.
-- blueeyesparkle  1/15/2013
I love the name Winter. I named my daughter who passed Winter, well because it was Winter and I knew she was going back up to heaven. So I have an angel named Winter. It feels peaceful to me, reminds me of suttle good things. I loved that baby, I love her name. I believe it suited her well.
