Winifred :D

Winifred’s been on my mind for a few days. It’s my newest Auntie’s name (well, she’s been married to Skip for 5 years now, so new is a relative term…) and I like her very much, even though I only email with her and talk on the phone about once a week (someone needs to keep tabs on flaky Skip). I really like the sound of Winifred and find the possibility of Winnie to be most enticing. 😀   I could even pop in a Freda occasionally, I would think. 🙂   So, I’ve definitely been tossing around combos and have settled with this bunch as being most pleasing but cannot narrow it any further.  I’ll be posting them in a poll later on but for now, they’re just here. And here they are:

 

Winifred Elinor Plum
Winifred Romilly Violet
Winifred Ruby Katharine
Winifred Lily Alice
Winifred Esme Ruby
Winifred Carys Irena
Winifred Esme Ghislaine
Winifred Esme Loveday
Winifred June Kathleen/Winifred Kathleen June (I like this both ways!)
Winifred Poppy Esmée

 

What do you think of Winifred? Like her, hate her, love her? Think it’s insane to be thinking of Winifred these days? Maybe she’s ready for a comeback?  And, if you’d be so kind, which of the above combos do you like best and why. I’d appreciate it very much!  Thanks!

Boys names that End in ‘O’

Since the Boys names ending in ‘Y’ seemed like such a hit, I thought I’d toss out all those lovely -O enders I’ve collected. I love the letter O. So lovely to write out, so pretty to see.  No, I do not use O and 0 (zero) interchangeably. Even Josephine’s got it down already. 4:00 is four, zero, zero to her, not four, oh, oh.  I used to get smacked for it both at home & at school. “Zero is a number, O is a letter!”  Told you my Pop insisted on precise wording!   Anyhoo…

Those O ending boys. They feel comfortable, friendly, and accessible.  I have quite a few favorites ending in O and used my most favorite one of all years ago. I don’t think it’s too weird to have two boys ending in o, particularly, especially with the years between them.

 

They all have something… I don’t know what to call it –  attitude, charm, a happy vibe – soemthing like that. So without further ado, here for your enjoyment, the ‘O’ boys   :
