Winter is a Baby Girl Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Winter.

The name Winter is a girl's name of English origin. Fresher, brisker and, yes, cooler than Summer or Autumn or Spring, Winter is now a full-fledged female choice, especially since Nicole Richie and Joel Madden used it for daughter Harlow's middle name, and Gretchen Mol picked it as her daughter's first, as did media mogul Sean Parker. Winter continues to be the preferred spelling and has risen in popularity significantly over the past few years. Although Winter entered the U.S. Top 1000 in 1978, it was been used as a first name as early as the seventeenth century. Some interesting international words for winter: Aeneva (Cheyenne, Native American), Cole (Chinook, Native American), Hima (Indian), Jara (Indian), Saradi (Indian), Vandi (Kashmiri), Zaya (Old Persian) and Zima (Russian, Bulgarian).
