Wow, love your daughter's full name. That works, and an awesome way to get the nicknames Win or Winnie, without using Winifred. I was born in Berkshire, UK. I'm from Reading, but not that far from Windsor. I live in Hampshire now, though.

Our daughter's name is Windsor Sutton Paige - we love that it is unique, but has strong English roots. We call her Win or Winnie for short.

I love names with Win/Wen/Wyn. I think this one is beautiful but I would never be able to use. I live in a city called Windsor and it has a reputation with many to be "capital of the unemployed, Detroit's armpit, etc" as it was an automotive city that got hit by overseas jobs. It does have a lot of potential and community involvement, if only the people who "hated it here" would just move out.
