Names for December Babies

December babies are often thought of as holiday babies, named for Christmas or possibly Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. But there are also other baby names that seem particularly appropriate for babies born in December. These 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 have something to do with 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. 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 related to the month of December.
