It's been so long since we've done a Name to Consider post, you may have forgotten we've ever done one. Previous posts include Brando, Schroeder, and Abelson. Remember that the point of a "name to consider" is not so much "Do I personally like the name and would I personally use it?" (though of course that's always an interesting issue), but rather, "Does this seem like A NAME? Can I picture SOMEONE---perhaps someone in search of a more unusual style than I myself would consider---using this for a baby?"
Names to Consider are names I FEEL as if I made up out of my own head---but I assume that if I"m "making up" a name, that means many, many others have already made up the same name (see also The Baby Name Wizard's section on the name Keaton, pages 3-4 in the second edition).
Today's candidate I thought of because of a misunderstanding: my mom was talking about a doll she referred to as Miss Winter, and I thought she said Brynter. My immediately reaction was positive: it combines Bryn (which can seem too short) with Winter (which can seem too nouny). It has the popular occupational sound.
I think it could work. What do you think?
