Christmas Baby Names: From Natalie to Noel
Can you be more blatant than this? Though it’s rare, Christmas has been used occasionally for both boys and girls in the past. In pop culture, Christmas Jones was a nuclear physicist Bond girl played by Denise Richards in the 1999 The World is Not Enough, and on the old sitcom Three’s Company, ditzy Chrissy was christened Christmas Noelle Snow.

Eve, Belle (I prefer the e), and Christmas would make lovely middles and its such a shame that the first thing everyone thinks of when they hear Rudolph is a red-nosed reindeer

Natalie Wood’s birth name was actually Natalia, not Natasha. Natasha was a nickname.

Right, NameNerdia–I made the correction. Thanks.

I’ve always loved my name! I wasn’t born around Christmas, but my name fits me wonderfully. And I always get compliments on it, regardless of its new rise in popularity.

I am a Christmas baby that wears the name Angela Christina. I always liked that it meant Christmas angel but have always hated having a birthday at Christmas time.

What about Star, Betsy’s little sister who was born at Christmas (Carolyn Haywood)?
My brother, whose birthday was this past Friday is Nick (Nicholas), but that would have been his name no matter when he was born. Besides, the social worker didn’t put him in my arms until January.

My good friend was born on Christmas day. Her mom named her Mary Christine for Merry Christmas. I like the subtlety of her name.

I like Eve, Natalie, and Natalia. Oh, and Balthazar. I’d like to add Belén (Spanish for Bethlehem).

I really like Natalie, and the spelling of Noel.

I love the name Natalie. Our baby girl is due in December and we are deciding between Natalie and Natalyn. Any suggestions?
