Thread: Christmas Names?
December 1st, 2012 10:41 AM #1
So baby due at Christmas, using Christmas names...cheesy or cute? I am leaning towards cheesy but I am a HUGE Christmas/winter lover so part of me thinks it would be kind of nice to subtly have Christmas/winter mentioned. Problem is, don't think I can find any names I like. Just wondering generally speaking do people think this a cheesy thing to do anyway? I don't like names like Noelle, Holly, Ivy, etc..too obvious. I would likely lean more toward a middle name spot anyway. Probably won't due it but just an idea...I'm due Dec 23rd.Mom to Mhairi Elizabeth (March 19, 2010) & Fiona Lilidh (Dec 21, 2012)

Princess Alice, the Duchess of Gloucester, and her niece by marriage, Princess Alexandra, the Lady Ogilvy, both have the name Christabel because they were born on Christmas day. I think that's a pretty cute tradition.
I also think that the name Holly is cute on christmas babies, but that might be on the edge of being cheesy.

Ya, I think if the baby came Christmas Eve or Christmas Day then I'd almost feel I had to incorporate Christmas some how! But not in an over the top way. Holly is cute actually the more I think about it. I am liking Beth/Bethany as in Bethlehem. It's subtle but still Christmas related. For the record, I do not mean I would use the name Bethlehem haha just Beth or Bethany.Mom to Mhairi Elizabeth (March 19, 2010) & Fiona Lilidh (Dec 21, 2012)

I like Noelle a lot but for some reason, Noella is a very common name where I live in the french community. I never really liked Noella much but I do find Noelle prettier. Natalie is also very pretty. I never knew it was a Christmas name until I started googling Christmas names!

It's cheesey imo, but a cute kind of cheesey, I think people come to expect you to give your baby a christmasy name if it was born near Christmas.
Mary/Marie/Maria - if your religious, otherwise prob not
Virginia - same as above
Angel/Angela/Angelique/Angelina - same as above
Gabriella - same as above
Gloria - same as above
Snow - too obvious?
Nicole - Saint Nick/Santa
Carol - too obvious?
Clarice - female reindeer in Rudolph
Natala - born at Christmas
Natalii - born at Christmas
Scarlet - red is a Christmas color
Jovie - from the movie Elf
Cindy - The Grinch

I love Clara from the nutcracker as I loooove ballet and Nutcracker is one of my faves. My husband didn't like Clara though. Clarice is cute after the Rudolph except that I also think Silence of the Lambs ahha Love Gabrielle..it's one of my top names if she's born really close to Christmas. Can't use Mary or any variation as my first daughter is already Mhairi (gaelic for Mary).Mom to Mhairi Elizabeth (March 19, 2010) & Fiona Lilidh (Dec 21, 2012)
