The name Winnie is a girl's name of English origin meaning "holy peacemaking, gentle friend". Winnie and is often added to lists like Attitude Nicknames for Girls and discussed in our forums with posts like "Love, Like, Lose... Name Game- GIRLS".
From the experts:
This pet form of such names as Winifred and Edwina and Gwendolyn has loads of vintage charm, a la Millie and Maisie, with a decidedly winning vibe. And it just got celebrity cred as the baby daughter of Jimmy Fallon.
Winnie had been used regularly on its own in the U.S. through the early 1950's and has a number of varied namesakes. There's the Pooh, of course, and also Winnie Mandela, former wife of South African President Nelson; Winnie Cooper, the charming girlfriend of the young hero on The Wonder Years--whose given name was Gwendolyn; Winifred "Winnie" Foster, a main character in the childhood classic Tuck Everlasting; and it was also a nickname for Winston Churchill.
