Noelle Origin and Meaning

The name Noelle is a girl's name of French origin meaning "Christmas".

Noelle is the feminine variation of Noël, a masculine given name derived from the French word for "Christmas." As a word, Noël originated as a variant of nael, which evolved from the Latin natalis, meaning "birth." Noelle and Noel have traditionally been given to children born around Christmastime, particularly in the Middle ages.

Feminissima, with a French gloss. Noelle and her usually-male counterpart Noel can make perfect names for December babies and of course are also traditional names for Christmas babies. For extra French flair, add the diaeresis over the first E to get Noëlle.
