The only drawback I see for [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f] would be the number of people who’d misspell it. OTOH, most people need to spell out their names nowadays–you never can tell how the spelling might vary. I think it’s an elegant, very Victorian-sounding name. It also has some wonderful nickname possibilities: [name_f]Mina[/name_f], [name_f]Willa[/name_f], etc.

I live it. Under no circumstances does it need a nickname.

It’s not my cup of tea…I really love [name_f]Willa[/name_f] though.

I have always loved this name! But, I can understand why it is not everyone’s cup of tea.

I’m also a fan of historical / vintage type names and I want to like [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f], I really do, but I just don’t. I’m not sure why, it just doesn’t do it for me. Having said that, the other names in your signature I adore!
