The Ultimate Christmas Baby Names For Boys

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.

>> THE BEST CHRISTMAS BABY GIRL NAMES

1. Nicholas

Named after Father Christmas himself (St. Nicholas) this traditional boy’s name can be affectionately shortened to ‘Nick’ or ‘Nicky’.

2. Joseph

Another traditional option, Joseph is a  good sturdy Hebrew baby name – and, obvs, Jesus’ old man’s name.

3. Casper

One of the three wise men, Casper can be spelt ar or er, depending on which you prefer.

4. Rudolph

Not just Santa’s head reindeer’s name, this Germanic name has become increasingly popular in recent years.

5. Gabriel

You could name your baby boy after the angel of Christmas, Gabriel, which is another Hebrew name.

6. Noel

…Coward, Gallagher, Edmonds – quite a few male celebs rock this festive name effortlessly.

7. Balthazar

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’.

8. Christian

The ultimate spiritual name, Christian means ‘follower of Christ’. And hey, if it’s good enough for Batman actor Christian Bale…

9. Comet

Another of Santa’s reindeers, Comet is a really cute baby name and we reckon this astronomical name could become popular.

10. Buddy

If you’re a fan of Elf (and who isn’t?!), then Buddy could be a great choice for your festive arrival.
