Did your baby girl arrive on Christmas Day, but Noel or Holly don’t seem to be a good fit? Consider Natalya, traditionally used as a name for girls born on Christmas in Russia. It’s a gorgeous and exotic-sounding name that will set your daughter apart from any Natalies she may encounter. And, while feminine, a number of Russian athletes have bore the name, so it’s also a good pick for an active little girl.
