Christmas Names: From Anya Claus to Zuzu Bailey

December 23, 2011 Linda Rosenkrantz

Looking for Christmas names for your holiday-season babe? Well, you can forget about those old chestnut choices like Noel/Noelle, Holly, Natalie, Eve, Merry, Carol and Claus. A much more original idea might be to look at some of the classic and current Christmas movies for interesting character names that would do the job more subtly. But don’t worry– we’re not suggesting Ebenezer or Clarence.

Alonzo was the name of both the father and the brother (both called by nickname Lon) in the Smith family in this “Have yourself a merry little Christmas” flick, "Meet Me in St. Louis," starring Judy Garland. This dashing Latinate name, which has always ranked in the Top 1000, is ready for wider use. Don’t like Lon? You can call me Al.
