Are you anticipating a festively-timed new addition to the family? Take inspiration from our Christmas baby name suggestions
A Christmas-inspired baby name doesn’t have to be tacky or blatantly festive. There are lots of baby names that mark the season of your little one’s birth and lovely choices, too.
Named after Father Christmas himself (St. Nicholas) this traditional boy’s name can be affectionately shortened to ‘Nick’ or ‘Nicky’.
Another traditional option, Joseph is a good sturdy Hebrew baby name – and, obvs, Jesus’ old man’s name.
One of the three wise men, Casper can be spelt ar or er, depending on which you prefer.
Not just Santa’s head reindeer’s name, this Germanic name has become increasingly popular in recent years.
You could name your baby boy after the angel of Christmas, Gabriel, which is another Hebrew name.
…Coward, Gallagher, Edmonds – quite a few male celebs rock this festive name effortlessly.
If you’re after a name that’s a bit more unusual, this could be perfect. Another of the three wise men’s names, Balthazar can be adorably shortened to ‘Baz’.
The ultimate spiritual name, Christian means ‘follower of Christ’. And hey, if it’s good enough for Batman actor Christian Bale…
Another of Santa’s reindeers, Comet is a really cute baby name and we reckon this astronomical name could become popular.
If you’re a fan of Elf (and who isn’t?!), then Buddy could be a great choice for your festive arrival.
