Comments for WYNTER:

I can't see any connection with "Winter", if you spell like this. Just a pronunciation is the same but I think the beauty of the name 'Winter' (like snow white and so on) is totally gone.

This name is marked as being for females, but I'm a male who happens to have the name Wynter Woods. I was given this name because my dad wanted to prove that guys could be named after a season/month.

Ugh, the concept of naming your child after random words in the dictionary disgusts me. But when said word's spelling is changed so that the phonetics don't even work anymore (Wynter should, phonetically, be pronounced why-en-tur), god it really shows that parent's common sense is dwindling down to nothing.

The spelling looks quite ugly and tacky, and it looks like something immature parents would choose instead of Winter.

I think the name is spelled better this way. "Winter" just seems really flat somehow.

I agree with the comment 2 comments above.

This spelling IS tacky, and kind of something immature parents would choose.

I've seen this spelling of the name in an historical novel. Except the character was male.

This name is ok sounding.

This will only make you look like you don't know how to spell. Stick with "Winter".

I hope using this name for a character doesn't make me an immature author! :P I like both Winter and Wynter, though I slightly prefer Wynter. Plus, I DO know how to spell. ;)

I think this name is very nice and an interesting variation of "Winter", but it strikes me as more a middle name than a first one. For that reason, I think I'll use it as the middle name of a character in my stories than a first one.

It's an unusual name, but I've always been fond of it. My mother chose it because "during the winter, life always lies dormant under the snow, but then everything blooms again". I never quite understood the idea, but whatever. No matter what the reasoning, I've always been fond of my name. There are some ups and downs to it though (just as there are with any other name).

On the bad side: As a kid I used to get incredibly angry when peopled called me other seasons which is, sadly, quite a common occurrence. For some reason people tend to think it's the most hilarious thing in the world. They also tend to ask if I have cousins/sisters named Summer or Fall. The nicknames and insults can get a bit idiotic as well; I've been called snowball, Wynts, Wynn, Wynnie, Wynnie the Pooh, ice queen bitch, snow white, etc. Once or twice it's been mispronounced by someone obviously lacking brain-cells.
On the good side: People always seem to be complimenting me on how unique and pretty it is. And it tends to stand out. My dream is to be an author one day, and I think a lot of people will find it easier to remember my name as compared to, say, Kelley. Some names are just so overused.


I've seen a lot of people here commenting on the spelling. Personally, I've always thought that "Winter" was the masculine form and "Wynter" the feminine. Winter started off as a male name and I've a friend online with that spelling who says she's always mistaken for a boy whereas I've never had that problem before.
