But what  about whinger? It doesn't provide whinger.

From the OED
Pronunciations:
hw(g)(r), 
hwnd(r))  
"The pronunciation with () or  (g) is vouched for by  several instances in 
rime; that with () is indicated by the  spelling whinjer (quot. 1823) and 
implied by the form of Gael.  cuinnsear dagger, sword, which is a loan-word 
from Sc."
Cheers,
