Dear Winter is a song by AJR. AJR is one of my favorite bands. I like the name Winter and Wynter, but I wouldn't name my daughter Winter. I see this more on a girl than a boy. My favorite seasons are Autumn and Winter, by the way.

I love the name Winter! It’s so much prettier than Summer and Autumn. It’s elegant and simple yet practical at the same time. This name jumped out to me after I read the Lunar Chronicles, but it stands out on its own without the reference.

I'm a female named Winter. And might I say when people hear my name they seem to think they're the most comedic and original people in the world. Game of thrones references, is your favorite season Winter, do you change your name every season and were you born in the Winter? It's kind of funny at first but afterwards it gets boring because nobody, and I mean absolutely nobody has come up with something I haven't heard before. Like if you're gonna make fun of my name, at least be original. Also, my middle name is mai-lin. Mai is pronounced May. So there's plenty of jokes around that. And to top it off my last name is MacDonald so everybody jokes about McDonald's. I can't catch a break man! M'kay bye.

Usage: English (Modern), German (Modern), Swedish (Modern), Danish (Modern), Norwegian (Modern), Old Danish

Pronounced: WIN-tər (English), VIN-tu (German), VIN-teh (Swedish), VEHN-du (Danish)

Meaning: From the English word for the season set between December and March, which is derived from the Old English Winter or the Old High German wintar. This was a nickname for a person with a cold personality. It is also the Old Danish form of Vetr which also means 'Winter'.

“I turned out to have triplets and the due date was in Spring. Two girls and one boy! I had a lot of trouble deciding a name.. but Autumn, Summer, and Winter were our choice because none of them were born in Spring and they were all super pretty names. Everybody is so happy with our choice.”

I'm a male named Winter Storms, so that's fun. Anyway, it's definitely the kind of name that draws attention and starts conversations. I've heard a lot of jokes about the name but they're always pretty harmless. Lots of Game of Thrones references as of the last few years. People sometimes accidentally call me Hunter or Forrest. I think it's because it's such an uncommon name. I hope this is helpful!

A guilty pleasure name that I surprisingly adore. It reminds me of cool Winter breezes, snowball fights and ice hockey. I really think this is one of those unique names that could go with any baby to elderly person.

We decided to name our daughter Winter Rose. I have always wanted a rather not so common name that wouldn't be too far fetched but yet beautiful. She was born Jan 19th (mind you a month early and wasn't expected till Feb) none the less, Winter for the season and although it's not on everyone's list for the best season, it reminds me that there's also a lot of beautiful things that come with the cold. Rose was for love and original due date within a day of Valentine's day, also because of the movie Titanic (most favorite movie and love story). I think I'm still for Winter being a girl's name more so but then again it depends on what the middle name to pair it with would be. Have always gotten compliments on her name, it suits her and I couldn't ask for a better name to call my baby girl, Winter rose!

I personally wouldn't name my baby girl this, but it is a very pretty name and reminds me of how beautiful snowfall can be. You could call her "Winnie" for short.

I have a friend called Winter, but he's a boy. I'm still getting used to the fact that it can be used as a girl's name. I like it, though, for both boys and girls. It's strong of will and character and reminds me of soft snow falling and dreams coming true. It's a unique name, unlike any other, with its own qualities. I would name a daughter or a son Winter.

I named my daughter Winter. She is a little firecracker of a personality. Bold, beautiful, and adventurous. Most people we meet absolutely love the uniqueness of her name. We do get a few "funny" jokes and comments... the kids at school ask her if she will melt during summer holidays... or we get asked if she has a sister named Autumn, Spring, or Summer. She just laughs and rolls her eyes. She still likes her name. It seems to be getting more and more popular now... especially since Game of Thrones. "Winter is Coming."

I should probably start by saying I don't have children - I am a writer, with many characters who all have their own unique moniker. I started writing in high school (when I discovered behindthename) and I remember the polls then had an overabundance of this name with basically almost every other poll having it as an option for either a first or middle name. And I snubbed it completely. But it has been some time since then and now during the month of Nanowrimo 2016 I've actually used it myself for a young boy in my story because somehow in today's environment it doesn't seem quite as strange and 'kreatyve/uunique' as it once did. I don't know if that's because uncommon names are now becoming more common place or because I've become more like the rest of the generation that's giving babies these names, but it sounds like a good, strong name. And not strong in the masculine sense, just strong of character and will. Like the season itself. And it doesn't sound nearly as overdone as Summer and Autumn or as awkward as Spring.

Season names can be a hit or miss. Autumn and Summer are pretty, but rather juvenile, and Spring just sounds weird. Winter, however, is a very pretty name. It reminds me of a story I once read about a mute little girl named Winter, and though I barely remember the story, the association is still there in my mind. This gives it a rather sad flavor to me, because it was a sad story, but I still find it a pretty name.

I love, love this name. My 3rd child is named Wynter Noelle and it fits her very well. She's 8 years old now and as far as I know, she hasn't faced any bullying or teasing because of her name. (She was born on December 24th so my wife and I thought Winter (spelled Wynter to differentiate between the seasons and the name) and Noel were very fitting).

I really love this name! Over the past few years I've been facing feelings of gender dysphoria and I think I might adopt this name for a while as I believe it's more of a unisex name (although I worry that my personality might not match the connotations of Winter, but does that really matter?) :)

I named my daughter Winter in 2011 - because I thought it was a strong name - not a fluffy girl one- of serene calm and strength - force and tranquility - female at it's best - my ex husband landed her a title so now she's Lady Winter... - and she alternates between football strips and fairy dresses fluidly - it's appropriate.

I knew a girl named Winter in high school. She was so awesome and the name fit her so well. I really loved her name. So I've always wanted to name a future daughter Winter. I'm now pregnant with a girl who is due in December. My husband and I both love the Winter season. But I'm doing lots and lots of research because I was made fun of a ton (my name is Anita) growing up because of my name. I really don't want my children to go through the same. If we choose not to name her Winter for a first name we will most likely choose it for a middle. It's a beautiful name for those who love the Winter season!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
