Doubting daughter's middle name
Oh, I guess I am having first trouble with my lady's name...
My first daughter was born in May and we named her Cornelia Hermione Winter. In my opinion, it's the most beautiful name ever...or used to be my opinion.
I spent 6 months of my pregnancy searching through the names and only found THE name the day she was born. I still adore Cornelia and though we have some pronunciation issues with Hermione, I wouldn't like to change it. But Winter...
We picked it because it honors our relative called Winn and seemed to be a modern, quirky choice to balance out Cornelia Hermione. Other options were Winn, Gwendolen and Winifred but after discussing with your ladies, we decided on Winter. I like the sound but there are a few thing that bother me about it. First, Winter doesn't have any meaning besides being a word. I don't really worry about meaning but maybe using a word for name sounds silly to people? Also, I recently noticed some berries describing Winter as trendy and not very usable.
So please tell me, is Winter that bad? I am not sure if I will change it anyway but I need to put a light on the situation. Does Winter sounds awful with Cornelia Hermione? Should I change it to something else?
I am considering
Cornelia Hermione Sorrel
Cornelia Gwendolen Hermione
Cornelia Hermione Winifred
and other ideas. Any help?

I just want to say that when I saw the birth announcement for your daughter, I absolutely swooned over it. I think you nailed it - Winter does balance out the classic Cornelia and whimsical Hermione. I don't think Winter is trendy at all. The only names I consider trendy are those misspelled to look unique. Winter may be getting more attention, but I don't think it's trendy.
Winter rounds out the name perfectly, in my opinion. As a whole, it makes me think of your daughter as a cute little snow queen.
