74 Magical December Baby Names

December baby names are often equated with Christmas names or possibly names associated with Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. But there are names for December babies beyond holiday names. December baby names might be names relating to winter, the season that begins on December 21. December 21 is also the date of the Winter Solstice, another source of December baby names, which may include names that mean light….or dark. And then there may be baby names related to snow, to the number 12, to the end of the year, to important namesakes connected to the month of December, or to the astrological signs Sagittarius or Capricorn. December baby names might also relate to December's birthstone, turquoise, or its flower, holly or narcissus. If you’re expecting a December baby or perhaps naming a child conceived in December or one with another important December connection, consider these names for December babies.
