Windsor Origin and Meaning

The name Windsor is a boy's name of English origin meaning "riverbank with a winch".

Windsor may have male references, such as Britain's royal House of Windsor and a tie's windsor knot, but this name also has a definite feminine feel, as in Windsor Rose. That seems appropriate, as Windsor is used equally these days for boys and girls.

Nicknames might include Win, Wind, Windy, and Winnie.
