Go Team Green. Fun to see such an eclectic style.
Bright is one of my favorite names and has been for some time. I just love it when paired with a more classic or vintage name. Frances Bright and Rosalie Bright are on my list. But I love Susanna Bright Winslow, that's a wonderful name.
Thoughts on your other girl names:
Lane - Is nice but not as special as some of the others.
India - Huge controversy/stigma around this name. I love the country, I love the sound of the name but I wouldn't saddle my child with something that she would grow up to understand is actually very offensive to a lot of people in/from that country.
Joni - Johnnie or Joanie pronunciation? I feel like this could be a continual annoyance for someone with this name.
Simrona - Very unique but doesn't "flow" when I say it for some reason. Especially with Winslow.
Jaina - Like it.
Della - Love it. Della Winslow =
Liet - Would make a cute middle name. Liet Winslow looks awkward to me.
What about: Indira, Sabina, Zora, Sylvie, Gloria, Delta, Lida (LEED-uh), Nova, Sybil, or Luella ?
Alton - Like it.
Gordon - Very bad personal associations.
Rollo - Not with Winslow.
Frederick - Love.
George - Sad that people are disregarding it now, when it soon won't matter. Nobody thinks 30-year-old Williams are named after the prince.
Moss - Very unusual. But it strikes me as more feminine than masculine.
Bennett - Like it but it was #202 in 2012!
Claude - I can never like this because of the word "clod" - I think of a big clod of mud sticking to something, or someone being called "a stupid clod."
Wilder - I like it but Wilder Winslow is a little tongue-tangly. I'd make it a middle name.
Pax - Great meaning. Brangelina-ized therefore I'd nix it but that's me.
Ludo - Not with Winslow.
Nelson - Uncommon and very handsome. Love it. Nelson Wilder or Nelson Frederik = .
What about... Brooks, Adler, Davis, Shepherd, Rudy, Bridger, Edmund, Ward, or Harvey ?

Thanks everyone for the feedback! My last name is driving me nuts. All my favorite names are either ending in 'o' or start with a 'W'.
August 30th, 2013 02:03 AM #10I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

Sorry, what's team green? Does it mean you haven't found out the gender?
Susanna Winslow - I love this, I think it's superb
Lane Winslow - cute, fits nicely with Marley
India Winslow - the flow feels off to me because both are emphasized on 1st syllable
Joni Winslow - would you consider Joan, nn Joanie?
Simrona Winslow - hm, I like Simona Winslow, but Simrona seems off and I prefer Susanna
Jaina Winslow - sounds a bit harsh together
Della Winslow - oh that's lovely
Liet Winslow - like leet or elite? sounds awkward
Alton Winslow - very handsome, very Southern
Gordon Winslow - very nice
Rollo Winslow - it rhymes
Frederick Winslow - my favorite
George Winslow - both names share an O sound, which is fine—I wouldn't let the new prince stop you if you love it
Moss Winslow - lot of S, and some would think his name was Winslow Moss
Bennett Winslow - great name!
Claude Winslow - very nice (sounds quite different from clod when I say it)
Wilder Winslow - sounds a bit like a movie star with the alliteration and rhythm
Pax Winslow - too short, flow's off
Ludo Winslow - both end in O, not my favorite but it works better than Rollo
Nelson Winslow - lot of n, l, s, o
Susanna, Della, and Lane
Frederick, Bennett, and Alton

Gordon, oh dear, I love the name so much. Choose this one! Choose this one! Choose this one!
Gordon Winslow sounds handsome.
And that ends the names I like for boys. It's not your problem, I'm very picky.
I think Alton, Claude and Bennett are nice too.
India is my fave from the girls, but I think I would name my daughter Indira instead. Indira Winslow.
Susanna is second. I would also consider Joan/Jodi.Michelle
I'm an Italian teenberry!
I have synesthesia.
Apologies for any grammar/spelling mistakes. I try my best.
Also, I'm bad at naming boys. You'll almost never find me discussing boy names.
