    Natalia for Christamastime babies only?

    I like this name (a sister for Eva) -- but it means 'born at Christmas' and I am wondering, should the name be limited to babies born in Dec? How many people realize what it means?

    I think that if you like it, go for it, no matter the time of year. I know what it means but my family speaks some Italian (Natale is Christmas in Italian). It personally doesn't bother me if the child is not born at Christmas.

    oh you can totally use it any time of year! I grew up with a Natalie born in August, and no one ever thought that was weird.

    Love Natalia - and I really don't think that most people would say it is only a Christmas time baby name. Go for it :)

    I totally agree! Natalies (and all variations) are born year round. :-) Natalia and Eva is a lovely combo!

    Go for it! I don't think people associate names with their meanings anymore. I would use this name but it's too similar to my own - which also mean's Christmas born, and I was born in June!! Fab name. Good luck.

    I agree with the pps! I don't think that the time of year she's born is an issue when naming a daughter Natalia - just as Junes aren't all born in June or Pascales born around easter

    Natalia is too good a name to be limited to Christmas babies!
