Holiday Inspired Baby Names

Are you expecting the ultimate gift this holiday season?

If you due date is drawing near and you are still struggling for the perfect name for your little bundle of joy, why not let the time of year decide what name your baby will have.

The holiday season is filled with cheer, so spread the cheer all year round with a holiday inspired name.  Babble writer Amy Soukup has compiled a list of 30 names for the holiday season for both boys and girls.

Although I’m not due anywhere near the holiday season, I’m still struggling for a baby name and have picked a few of my favorites from the list to share with you. 

Dreyden: Inspired by the spinning top game played during Hanukkah, Dreidel, this name is a lovely unique name for a boy.  The name means full of life and energy, which could be fitting for several boys I know!

Nicholas: A classic name, yet around Christmas time, puts on an entirely new meaning.  Jolly old St. Nicholas is the real man who has a reputation for secretly giving gifts and who is also the model for our modern day Santa Claus.

Pax: The meaning of this name is “peace” and that is exactly what you wish for when you bring a new baby home.

Stella: I am in love with this name for a little girl.  The meaning behind the name is one that we all wish for our little girls, to be a “star.”

Nia: Meaning purpose, this name is one of the seven principles of the December holiday of Kwanzaa. A beautiful and unique name for a little girl who will always have a purpose in her life.

Joy: This name just beams with happiness.  Give her a name for the way you feel when you bring her into the world this holiday season.

Make sure you check out the entire list of holiday inspired names for boys and girls. These are only a few of my favorites from the holiday season.

Will you name your child after one of these holiday names?
