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.

1. Robin

A robin is a winter bird.

2. Noel

Noel is the perfect Christmasy moniker!

3. Alpine

The word “alpine” literally means “from the Alps,” and conjures up wintery images of snowy mountains.

4. Neve

As a variant of the Latin “Neva,” this pretty name means “snow.”

5. Lumi

Lumi also means “snow” in Finnish.

6. Jenara

Jenara is of Latin origin, and means “January.”

7. January

Of course, January itself is a great name for a girl — remember the popular Mad Men actress January Jones?

8. Jack

To get the winter reference, think Jack Frost!

9. Icelyn

OK, so “Ice” might be a bit much, but this is a nice feminine variation on the word.

10. Ivy

This winter vine is bright and beautiful, even in the dead of winter.

11. Holly

These are both beautiful winter berries and a popular girl’s name.

This state (which knows its fair share about winter) makes a great girl’s name.

Carol is a perfect, celebratory name for a Christmas baby.

23. Demi

Demi is a shorter version of “Demeter,” the Greek goddess responsible for winter.

December might not be the most popular when it comes to “months-as-names,” but it’s one of my favorites!

This name is perfect for a baby born on a crisp winter day.

26. Snow

Reminiscent of Snow White, this name is also ideal for a baby born in the coldest months of the year.
