Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English (Old English) personal name Winter (Old English Wintra), originally a nickname from the word for ‘winter’ and perhaps still a nickname (see 2 below) in the period of surname formation.

English: occasionally perhaps an occupational name from Middle English winter, a variant of Middle English, Anglo-Norman French viniter, vinter ‘wine merchant’.

Irish: Anglicized form (part translation) of Gaelic Mac Giolla-Gheimhridh ‘son of the lad of winter’, from geimhreadh ‘winter’. This name is also Anglicized McAlivery.
