But I wish you would suggest Clarence! It’s a shame that there aren’t more little Clarences out there… I like Augustus, Arthur, Frederick, Miles, and Jefferson. Zuzu would be a cute nn…

Actress Mitzi Gaynor is in White Christmas- another seasonal connection for the adorable name!

Zazu reminds me of the “Boston Teens” sketch on SNL with Jimmy Fallon and Rachel Dratch

Love Frederick. It’s my pick if we have another boy. I also like Arthur.

Lovely Post! I am rather fond of Clarice (Rudolph) and Rose (St. Louis). Alonzo nn Lon is striking me today as a rather dashing choice.

Some cute names. Although I’d suggest that simply appearing as a character’s name in a Christmas movie doesn’t make a name particularly “Christmassy”.

I grew up loving old movies because of my Grandmother’s influence. On Christmas Eve when our family visits her house she always has “It’s a Wonderful Life” “A Christmas Carol” or Meet Me in St. Louis” in her DVD/TV and in the kitchen, Doris Day, Elvis, Andy Williams and Judy Garland playing on her CD player. She always loved them as a kid from her parents too during the holidays, so we just grew up with the oldies during the holidays. I’ve always loved the names Clarice from Rudolph, Clarence from IAWL…..Ester and Tootie from MMSL…and Max from the Grinch. As a matter of fact, when I was 7 I told my Mom that I was going to have twins someday named Clarice & Clarence!

I’ve always thought Zuzu was a charming nickname. I have to agree though, a name appearing in a Christmas movie doesn’t really make it particularly “Christmasy” — OR clever.
