In the UK nickname-names are so 'in' right now! Their are so many Alfie's, Archie's, Jack's, Millie's, Ellie's, and Mia's and because of this people are turning towards more unusual nickname choices to be fashionable yet unique like for instance Effie and Annie. I think Winnie fits right in with this trend, yet is far more unusual than the other nickname choices. She fits in with the likes of Effie, Annie and Hattie. Winnie has a sweet, light, and intriguing sound. Winnie looks visually adorable and would make a great choice.

I think Winnie is adorable! I love it. Gwendolyn and Winter are my favorite long versions, but I think Gwyneth nn Winnie would be pretty cute, too. Or any other Gwen name--Gwenore, Guinevere, etc. I personally wouldn't use it on its own, but there are probably three official nicknames/diminutives I would use on their own--Jack, Tess, and Kate (although I would only use Kate as a MN--not because I don't think it ages well, but because I really can't see me with a just Kate over the glorious Catherine!).Ashley
