    Default Winston for a boys name?

    What do people think of this name for a boy? I have been so stumped on names for my 2nd boy but came across this and like it because it's classic but not common (reminds me of winston Churchill as well).
    My other son's name ends in on too though so would two names ending in "on" be too much?
    Middle name would be Jack.
    Thanks! Happy to hear other unique boys names too

    I'm a bit on the fence with it. A nickname might be hard, I suspect the temptation is to be called 'Winnie'. I think its quite formal if that's what you are aiming for?
    Other ideas:
    Elliot
    Harvey
    Arlo
    Eric
    Archer
    Edison
    Lincoln
    Sebastian
    Spencer

    I like it, but I expect the temptation for others to call him Winnie will be high so I would consider that (as I don't like that as a nickname)
