Winslow Origin and Meaning

The name Winslow is a boy's name of English origin meaning "friend's hill or burial mound".

Winslow, despite its creative connection to the distinguished American painter Winslow Homer, does still retain remnants of the image of a Victorian boy in a sailor suit, making Winston or even just Win a preferable modern choice.
