I like to pronounce it "win-EE". But it's really pronounced WIN.

Wynne is an Old English name element meaning joy. Wynne/Wynn/Wyn is recorded as a shortened form of the Old English names starting or ending in Wyn.

My name is Wynne (female) I've only met a few Wynne's in my lifetime and they were men. I love my name and it is so unusual that people always stop and pronounce it again, or say that it's beautiful. The meanings that I have found before this site were Celtic, meaning fair of skin and hair.

This name is such a simple yet whimsical name. I'd consider using it on a child, because aside from its lovely sound and meaning, Diana Wynne Jones (the aforementioned author) wrote one of my all-time favorite books, Howl's Moving Castle.
