Thank you, I'm struggling with this one! I can see myself explaining before they say 'but she wasn't born in winter?' I don't want to explain that we just loved the name every time I introduce her, but I also don't want to be asked the question, or imagine I'm getting a confused look! xx

I'm not sure I would name a baby summer if they were born in winter but I think it's fine to name them winter if they're born in autumn- it feels like winter anyway!!
I only know one summer and she is a July baby

Name your baby whatever name you want to! We named our girl Aurora Grace. People automatically assume we named her after the Disney character from Sleeping Beauty, which is far from the truth. Aurora was the Roman Goddess of sunrise. My favorite 'nursery' song is "You Are My Sunshine". It holds special meaning to me. My DH also grew up in Alaska so she was also named after the aurora borealis.

Don't let what other people think interfere with what you name your lo!

Go for it! And can I highly recommend Winter as a name, itís so so beautiful ❤️
Thank you! Winter is the name we like, but the baby will be born in autumn. I think it's a beautiful name too. xx
Do it! Itís utterly beautiful 🙂 People ask stupid questions about all sorts of things and really itís never been a big deal. Weíve been asked maybe...10 times total, I say no and people drop it. We get Far more comments saying what a beautiful name it is 🙂🙂

I hope me saying this helps as honestly it really is true - the name totally suits our little girl, still sounds utterly beautiful and I promise we get So many nice comments about what a beautiful name it is. Sure there have been a few Ďblank pauseí moments as itís not a name people always expect but - it doesnít outweigh the lovely by any means and our little girl loves her name.

We gave her a middle name which comes with many potential nicknames if she wants to use something else when she grows uo. But I donít think she will.

Oh and I meant to say that by the way i calculate it, I believe November Is in the winter 😉

Thanks, it is a beautiful name, and OH really loves it. (Apparently there was a comic book girl called Winter)

Our baby is arriving on the 19th October by c section, if not before, so definitely in the autumn. I think Winter technically starts in December.

But yes I guess once the baby grows into its name you probably forget the name is associated with anything else. Xxx

I love the names Autumn, Summer, and Winter. It isn't weird at all. (I wanna meet a baby named Spring, though. lol) I was going to name my May baby Autumn, but we decided to go with something more gender-neutral.

Thanks Only 10 days left until we meet the baby! No idea if it's a boy or girl, but Winter is top of the list if it's a girl. Thanks everyone for helping! Xx

Honestly donít even worry about that. People will always ask if you called your baby a certain name because of something irrelevant anyway
Iíve lost count of the amount of times people ask if Rio is named after the footballer Rio Ferdinand or do we support his team. Also Niko is only 10 weeks old and weíve had several people ask if OH is an F1 fan because of Nico rosberg and the other Nico whatever his name is. Nope, just liked the names!
