- Comments and insights on the name Winema: | Edit
Okay, this is my name but it is actually more commonly spelled the way I spell mine...which is Wynema.
It's pronounced with a long y sound just like if you were saying "why-nema"
It's Native American and it means "woman chief". I go by my nickname which is Nema. When I was a child my name annoyed me because everyone got it wrong but now I think it's cool to have an unusual name and I get compliments on it all the time.
