I have a very strange obsession with names that start with the letter W. I’ve tried to analyze why this might be, but have come up with no truly satisfactory answer other than that it’s just a very poetic and dignified sounding letter. So I thought I’d do a list of my absolute favorite names starting with W.
Walter– This classic, vintage name has been one of my favorites for a long time now. I’ve talked about it in other posts, but I had to do an honorary mention here in honor of all fallen soldiers and young girls with wounded hearts.
Wilson– In a word, this name is perfect. I’m obsessed with it. I love that it’s a surname but also has that “Wil” in it that makes it SUCH a cute alternative to William if that’s too popular for you. It’s unique, dignified, poetic and SO cute.
Wells– Another surname as first name, I love how simple and sweet this one is. I would love to use it as a middle name someday too since it’s my maiden name 🙂
Wilder– I wanted to mention this one as my more hipster option. I have very mixed feelings about this name because on the one hand I feel like it’s a little too much, but on the other hand it is a surname and has poetic and literary connotations. Plus it’s just adorable and makes me think of a cute little boy adventuring out in the woods.
Winona– Delicate, simple and stunning, this name is the stuff dreams are made of. I literally adore the name Winona so much and I think Winnie would be a really cute nickname as well.
Willa– I love how short and sweet Willa is, plus it has this cheekiness to that you have to love in a little girl’s name.
Winter– Again, we have an honorary hipster mention. I just love this name a lot okay? It may not be my usual style, but it’s so beautiful and I think a 2020 baby could pull it off very well.
