This December, I’m not naming a brand new baby — instead, I’m celebrating my little one’s first birthday! However, if I were still pregnant and looking for the perfect name, these “wintery” baby names would be high on my list.
Some of these are reminiscent of the season, while others are holiday-inspired — but regardless, these baby names are all beautiful, no matter what time of year your baby is born in!
Take a look at this list and pick your favorites.
