Meaning: Winnie is used as a nickname for Winnifred, Wynn, Edwina, Gwendolyn, Guinevere and Gwyneth, but can also be a stand-alone name. In English and on its own, Winnie means “from wine’s town” or “from a friend’s town.” The name’s meaning expands vastly depending on whether it is being used as a nickname and in what language it is used.
About This Name: Another name made famous by Disney — in this case, by the beloved bear Winnie the Pooh. Other, lesser-known Winnies include actress Winnie Lightner, dramatist Winnie Holzman and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, ex-wife of former South African president Nelson Mandela. In the Disney movie Tuck Everlasting, the main character’s name is Winnie Foster. Classic cartoon character Woody Woodpecker had a girlfriend named Winnie Woodpecker.
