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.



Audrey is the young daughter of the Griswald family, played by Juliette Lewis, in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," the third of the National Lampoon movies starring Chevy Chase. This name has been enjoying a new wave of popularity, thanks in large part to the lasting glow cast by the radiant image of Audrey Hepburn.
