Meaning:Blessed peacemaking; Friend of peace
Winnifred is a delightfully vintage name of Welsh origin that means “blessed peacemaking.” This feminine appellation is the anglicized form of the Welsh Gwenfrewi and was made popular by the venerated Saint Winifred. It is said that, at St. Winifred’s pilgrimage destination, “Lourdes of Wales,” one can make a wish to God in her name, and it will come true. Winnifred is also believed to be the feminine form of the Anglo-Saxon Winfred, meaning “friend of peace.” With adorable nicknames like Winnie and Freddie, it’s hard to go wrong with a classic like Winnifred.
