It feels a bit overblown, especially here in the UK... like you're literally trying to name him (or her) into the royal family. But I suppose if names like Duke, Earl, Laird, King, Queenie, Rex, Reign and Royal can be used, why not this?

RoddyThlayli Says:


There's a big, annoying city near where I live, but I never go there. I like it as a name. The nn Win is cute. Windy, not so much.

DearestJules Says:


Not a bad name, though.

Reminds me a little bit of windows.
