Thread: Christmas Names?
December 3rd, 2012 02:15 PM #36
Along that vein, do you have a favorite Christmas movie? While I don't love Eloise, I LOVE Eloise at Christmastime, and it would be a cute namesake. My favorite Christmas movie ever is Miracle on 34th Street, while I don't love Susan, I might consider Lily, Shoshana, or even Susanna as a nod to her.
Lucy (Charlie Brown and Santa Clause 2--although with Santa Clause 2, I think more of Liliana, since that's the actress's actual name)
Iris (The Holiday--not a traditional Christmas movie, haha, but one of my favorites! I love that movie, haha)
Annabelle (Annabelle's Wish)
Those are just a few I can think of now, a lot of the girls in Christmas movies seem to have dated names Karen (Frosty the Snowman), Carol (Santa Clause 2), etc.Ashley

I'm almost a Christmas baby myself, (my birthday's next week-I was born two weeks before Christmas), and earned myself the middle name Christine. I love it- Michaila Christine (after my dad, Michael). So of course I'm partial to Christine, especially as a middle name. It stands out among the Maries, Anns, and Lyns of my friends, but isn't completely crazy. Christina also makes a pretty first name.
Then of course, there's Natalie, (born at Christmas) Noella "Ella" (which would fit right in with the current trend if that sparks your interest) Eve, Angelina/Angel, Gabrielle, Belle, Gloria, and Clara. Eira and Caroline would also be subtle choices. Joy, Nichole, or Evangeline are also nice.
You could name her Eva Christine- Eve of Christmas.
Eira Belle- "beautiful snow" (well, technically, "snow beautiful" no pun intended!)
Clara Glory/Gloria Clare
You could always use Noel or Holly as a middle name. I'm actually kind of partial to Holly, but I can see how it could get cheesy around Christmas. I don't feel that Christine, Joy, or Gloria/Glory (LOVE Glory- once read a book called Morning Glory, and the main character's little sister was named Glory and I thought it was adorable!) would be too out there, especially for a middle name.Name Nerd & Author

My favorite Christmas name for a girl is Emmanuelle. Emma or Elle or even Ellie would be cute nns.
My birthday is 12/24 and I went by my first and middle names - Kate Noel - as a child.
Coincidentally my son was born last year on 12/22. His name was decided before we were even TTC so there was no negotiating for a Christmas name but I would have considered one in the middle spot if my husband had been up for it. He wasn't.
