Pop Culture References for the name Christmas


avalilli Says:


Noella would be beautiful.

OceanSky Says:


This would be a cute name for a dog. I’d just go with Noelle for a human.

Leah_ Says:


Naming a child Christmas would sentence them to a life time of bullying and harassment.

Mhill46 Says:


I can't decide how I feel about this name. Part of me loves it and thinks it's a beautiful, unique name but the other part wants to go "Ew. That's not a name." Might be a guilty pleasure name for me and I could see it going in the middle name slot.

beachbear Says:


This shouldn't be a name, IMO.

Poppet93 Says:


Doesn't mean it should many parents minds little Christmas will be a cute chubby 5 year old forever. But when they grow up and go to secondary/high school and they get asked their name...they will get totally bullied and laughed at. I think some of these names were given by parents who secretly hated their children and want them to get beaten up.

Impwood Says:


I think Easter is completely usable as a first name, so it is strange that I don't feel the same way about Christmas. It is probably something to do with the fact that the celebration of Christmas has so many things named after it, or that uses its name: Christmas cards, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, Christmas dinner, et al. With the special meaning "festival of Christ" and the sweet connection to the wonderful, spicy, candle-lit time of year, it would be nice if we could use it as a name, but it would be so difficult to carry. It does have the bonus of sharing many of Christina's potential diminutives -- Christie, Chris, Chrissie, etc. -- as well as also having the possibility of some others, such as Missy, that can be turned to when in need of an alternative name.
I do think it would make a wonderful middle name, but I think Christiania for the sound or Noelle or Natalie for the connection to the festival would be more recommendable.

kitty10 Says:


this isn't a name, are you on crack

Bobcat108 Says:


I've never heard of (& would never use myself) Christmas for a child, but in two of Dick Francis's mysteries the protagonist is named Christmas, because he was born on Christmas Day. (His twin sister is Holly.) "Christmas" has always been called Kit, though.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


This is one of my love-hate names. Same goes for Easter. Does anybody else ever have that feeling? It's pretty, but at the same time a bit overzealous and it would be tough to have the same name as a holiday.

ambg Says:


"Prettier and more modern than Noelle"? Are you drunk, nameberry writers?

Candler Says:


I would never use it on a kid, but I love the way it sounds.
