Feminine variation of Santo, Italian

Santa Origin and Meaning

The name Santa is a girl's name of Spanish, Italian origin meaning "saint".

Santa has an appealing sound, or maybe that's sleigh bells we hear? It's difficult to separate the Italian girls' name Santa from the association to Mr. Claus, king of Christmas. The German diminutive Senta -- or Snow or even Christmas -- might be an easier name to handle.
