Behind the Name

I was looking for some ice breaker games, and i accidentally discovered this interesting page that tells you the history of your name:

I was very surprise to see the "definition" of my name:

Gender: Feminine
Pronounced: WIN-ee
Pet form of
WINIFRED. Winnie-the-Pooh, a stuffed bear in the children's book by A. A. Milne, was named after a real bear named Winnipeg who lived at the London Zoo.

I can't believe that I am actually a bear! More information regarding how the name "Winnie" came about can be found here:

I wonder why my mum gave me this name. I hope I wasn't too fat when I was born. Hmm... But anyway it's interesting. Try and find out more about your name! *wink*
