Gender: F Origin of Winter: Word name Winter's Popularity in 2014: #556

Fresher, brisker and, yes, cooler than Summer or Autumn or Spring, Winter is now a full-fledged female choice, especially since Nicole Richie and Joel Madden used it for daughter Harlow's middle name, and Gretchen Mol picked it as her daughter's first, as did media mogul Sean Parker. While spelling Wynter rose more spots between 2012 and 2013, both names are on the rise -- and the more traditional spelling Winter remains more popular.

Although Winter just entered the U.S. girls' list in 1978, it has been found as a first name as early as the seventeenth century.

Some interesting international words for winter: Aeneva (Cheyenne, Native American), Cole (Chinook, Native American), Hima (Sanskrit), Jara (Hindi), Saradi (Hindi), Vandi (Kashmiri), Zaya (Old Persian) and Zima (Russian, Bulgarian).
