Category: winter baby names

There was a major snowstorm where I live recently, which of course got me thinking about names for babies born in a blizzard. I couldn’t find any examples that mean “terrible timing, little one,” but some of the names below may work.

The winter solstice, aka the first day of winter, is scheduled to arrive this Wednesday, although for many of us—even here in Southern California—it has already landed. And when we think of wintery names, the color white comes to mind, just as Spring is green, Summer is yellow, and Autumn a riot of red-orange hues.
Almost every culture has a name or names related to the color white and its suggestion of purity, goodness and light. Here are 14 of the best for your winter babe.
The blizzard that blanketed much of the US mid-Atlantic area in snow last weekend caused shuttered schools and businesses, buried cars and other massive disruptions for 80 million people. But with all that chaos, TV screens and the Internet were filled with picturesque wintry scenes and skiers gliding down Fifth Avenue. Snow still has a magical quality for the child in all of us, one that is celebrated in baby names across countless cultures. (by Linda Rosenkrantz)
Our friends over at Today Parents asked us to write about names for babies born during the massive blizzard in the Northeast US this week. If you’re expecting a baby during the current Snowpocalypse – or are just thinking you might put those snow days to good use in trying for one – you may want to find baby naming inspiration in one of these snow-themed choices.

The roster of US athletes hoping to compete in the Olympic games is a name list as diverse as the nation itself. Here I have curated a list of some girl names that feel like winners for a 2014 baby.
Petra– As in Petra Acker, college student and speed skater. This feminization of Peter is from the Greek word for “rock” or “stone”. I’ve always thought that Petra sounds elegant and sophisticated, yet wearable for a little one.
Lolo– Like the track star turned bobsledder, Lolo Jones (born, Lori). Lolo is a diminutive of Caroline, but I could see it working for plenty of other names including favorites like Charlotte and Eloise. More playful and friendly than Lola, maybe Lolo will pick up speed as a nickname in the years to come.
