Now that the month of December has arrived, preparations for the holidays are in full swing. Yet many Nameberry enthusiasts are planning for a lot more than just a family get-together! Whether you’re searching for a name for your winter baby or you’re just beginning to explore a few seasonal possibilities, this list will offer you a number of appealing choices.
Camellia—The Camellia Bowl is taking place on December 20th this year, and although football is not generally associated with delicacy and femininity,that is exactly what this gem of a name exudes. Camellia is a luxurious floral moniker that is far less common than the well-worn choices of Camille and Camilla. If you’re looking for an alternative to Lily or Rose, this could be the perfect choice for you.
If you’re expecting a baby anytime during the end-of-year holidays, you can’t help but at least muse on the idea of using a holiday-themed name.
Less widely-known are names that connect to other December holidays. Names that mean light, such as Zohar and Eleora, relate to Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights. Kwanzaa names include Nia and Imani.
There are names that announce the holidays loud and clear: Solstice, say, or Christmas or Holiday. Or you might prefer names that reference the holiday season more subtly: Hope, for instance, or Balthazar.
