The Names of Christmas Past: Movie names from Anya Claus to Zuzu Bailey

As a holiday season extra, we’re serving up a second helping of one of our favorite past Christmas slideshows.

Looking for Christmas names for your holiday-season babe? Well, you can forget about those old chestnut choices likeNoel/NoelleHollyNatalieEveMerryCarol 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.



Arthur is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Santa in the recently released 3-D animated film, "Arthur Christmas," and Arthur is a name that has made a surprise return visit to nurseries, first in Britain and now in the US, where it’s begun to regain some of its old chivalrous King Arthur shine.
