Baby Winter: Hugo, Hazel, Harriet, and Rosemary (Combos!!)


I am pregnant with a beautiful and nameless little (???). If the thing is a Boy he will be:

[name]Hugo[/name] [name]Jefferson[/name] [name]Winter[/name]

Girls are more difficult. Our top three right now are:

  1. [name]Hazel[/name] (he picked this one…and he doesn’t think of many, so I latched on. I think it’s lovely, and its his great grandmother’s name. I sometimes feel like it is TOO soft, but I’m working with it.)

[name]Hazel[/name] [name]Paloma[/name] [name]Winter[/name]

(We are hoping the “[name]Paloma[/name]” is not too out there. We aren’t Spanish speaking and have no latin heritage. However, we are very devout Catholics, and love the religious symbolism and peaceful/hopeful associations of “dove.” Also, we have long loved the name [name]Jemima[/name]–which also means “dove”–but have decided that little [name]Jemima[/name] [name]Winter[/name] just ain’t gonna happen in our family and in our country. (tear!) To me, [name]Paloma[/name] has the same spiritual charge and peaceful tone as [name]Jemima[/name]…without the pancake problem. Thoughts?)

  1. [name]Harriet[/name] (my grandmother’s name. [name]Love[/name] [name]Harriet[/name]. Husband likes it…wonders if it sounds too “hard.” He likes “[name]Hattie[/name],” but I’m not so sure.

The combo:
[name]Harriet[/name] [name]Consuelo[/name] [name]Winter[/name]

(Once again…the Spanish thing. [name]Consuelo[/name] meaning “consolation” which is lovely. Also Nuestra [name]Senora[/name] del [name]Consuelo[/name] is a title of the Virgin [name]Mary[/name]: Our Lady of Consolation. Also, I love the sound–so many vowels after the Germanic sounds of [name]Harriet[/name]…and that O ending. Thoughts?)

  1. [name]Rosemary[/name]. ([name]Rosemary[/name] is mine…husband isn’t quite sure. I’m into herbs and flowers. I like the possible reference to the Virgin [name]Mary[/name]. I like the nicknames. And when DH and I first started dating he called me “[name]Rose[/name]”)

Combos? combos here are tougher…could you help? I’ve come up with:

[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Lucie[/name] [name]Winter[/name] (too much eee sound?)

[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Lorraine[/name] [name]Winter[/name]

[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Winter[/name]

umm…it’s sortof tough. We would like to use a family name…here are a few:

[name]Lois[/name], [name]Patricia[/name], [name]Harriet[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name], [name]Mabel[/name], [name]Lucille[/name], [name]Kathryn[/name], [name]Louise[/name]…


[name]Mary[/name] of [name]Egypt[/name],

Your boy name is great! I love it - [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Jefferson[/name] [name]Winter[/name], [name]Hugo[/name] J. [name]Winter[/name], [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Winter[/name]. It’s very nice.

Am I the only one who finds [name]Hazel[/name] [name]Winter[/name] and [name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Winter[/name] a little bit odd? I think it is because they are word or color or plant names - it is throwing me off with your last name, even though I adore [name]Hazel[/name]!

So, I’d go with [name]Harriet[/name]. [name]Hattie[/name] is a great nickname, and I really only like [name]Harriet[/name] with that nickname, but then again - [name]Hattie[/name] [name]Winter[/name]? It reminds me of winter hats.

What about [name]Rosalind[/name]? [name]Rosamund[/name]? [name]Rosaleen[/name]? [name]Love[/name] [name]Rosie[/name] - wait, but there is that [name]Rosie[/name] [name]Winter[/name] problem again! Oh no! Maybe you could just call her [name]Rose[/name], or [name]Rosa[/name]?

[name]Do[/name] you like [name]Rosalind[/name] [name]Harriet[/name] [name]Winter[/name]? Called [name]Rose[/name] or [name]Rosa[/name], but not [name]Rosie[/name]? I also like [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Winter[/name] - [name]Libby[/name], [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Ellie[/name] - they all sound great with [name]Winter[/name]! [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Paloma[/name] [name]Winter[/name] is fabulous!

Good luck!

Beautiful names… (Interesting note: Two of the biggest hurricanes ever to hit the South [name]Carolina[/name] coast were named [name]Hugo[/name] and [name]Hazel[/name] so I just had to comment on your blog)

I love [name]Hugo[/name] for a boy and if I had to pick from the three girl’s names selections, I would pick [name]Hazel[/name]. It has a retro-cool vibe.

[name]LOVE[/name] [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Jefferson[/name] [name]Winter[/name]!!! Sounds and looks awesome!

For girls, here’s some combos I think look nice from the names you listed:

[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Paloma[/name] [name]Winter[/name]
[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Consuelo[/name] [name]Winter[/name]
[name]Harriet[/name] [name]Lucille[/name] [name]Winter[/name]
[name]Hazel[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Winter[/name]
