Winnie as a Jewish woman's name #general


Judith Singer
 

Has anyone else come across "Winnie" as a name for a Jewish woman, and
if so, do you know what name it might be derived from?

I am quite certain this is not merely a misspelling or mistranscription of Minnie,
because the name with the W occurs in a number of different records for women in
three related families around 1880-1900. The families originated in Lithuania.

Thank you for your help.
