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.



Another 1940’s vintage yuletide fave is "Christmas in Connecticut," in which the charming hero’s character name is Jefferson Jones. Boys’ names ending in son (aka patronymics), are currently riding high—as in Jackson, Anderson, Harrison, Edison, and the now unisex Addison. (btw, there’s another Dudley here in Connecticut.)
