    Lightbulb Wintery (without being obvious) names?

    My husband and I are expecting our first, long awaited, babe in early January. We are having a tough time with girls names!
    I'm looking for some names I haven't thought of yet, and I like the idea of a wintery name that's not obvious, but just has the vibe - kwim? (In other words, no Holly, Noel, Winter, Snow, etc).
    If it helps, I'm expecting our child to be dark haired, probably curly. I thought I liked classic, grandma names, but they're proving difficult. We tend to be having the best luck with nature names. I definitely go for shorter names. Just to give you something to go on, here's what we've agreed on so far, although none of them are quite right, or have a wintery feel.

    1. Edith - so far this is the only name that really speaks to me.
    2. Calla
    3. Mae
    4. Alice
    5. Myra
    6. Iris

    I really like Edith, Mae and Alice from your list. They may not give a wintery feel necessarily but they don't give a strong feeling of another season- which is maybe a better focus. One name that makes me think Winter is Natalie, since it can mean "born at Christmas."

    I would like to suggest Eira, a Welsh name pronounced ay-ra and meaning snow.
