Just as a cottage symbolizes comfort, Winthrop represents the endearing companionship between you and baby! This English name, shared with the charming settlements of Windthorpe in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, brings a dash of British pride to your baby's identity. It combines wine, meaning “friend” in Old English, with þorp, the Old Norse term for “settlement,” creating the meaning of “friend’s village.” So, go ahead and give your little one the name Winthrop to celebrate friendship and the cozy embrace of a homestead!
