I love December as a “unique” name. It’s so strong and pretty. With cute nickname ideas.

Super pretty, but what if you're like born in October or something? Well, I guess it's the same with all month named.

I’ve always loved the name December! So I gave it to my daughter as her second name (Aria December) My sister and sister in law are both born in December too :)

I love this name! However I don't think I would dare to use it..

Ps.. I know this can be a boys name, however I find it suits a girl much better.

Revolutionarygirl Says:


I agree I have loved the name for years but knew I wouldn't be brave enough to name a human child it, so I named my dog, who is basically my first child December and we call her Ember most of the time. The only annoy thing about it is when people call her Amber.

Why do I love month names so much?

vintageisfave Says:


December is my guilty pleasure name. Although I would probably never use it for a child, it could lead to one of my favorite nicknames-Emmie.
