The Ultimate Christmas Baby Names For Girls

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.


1. Carol

We all love singing a Christmas carol, so why not name your little girl after this festive tradition?

2. Holly

Festive and feminine, this English name comes from the Christmas prickly plant and is a lovely option.

3. Mary

Old fashioned names have made a huge comeback this year, making Mary the perfect on-trend and Christmas-appropriate name for your baby.

4. Joy

Another traditional name choice, Joy is short, simple and oh-so-sweet for a baby.

5. Gloria

Taken from the word Glory (which makes an appearance in many a Christmas hymn), this girl’s name is the first name of I Will Survive signer Gloria Gaynor.

6. Noelle

If you’ve been playing around with French names, take Noelle into consideration. A play on Noel, it mean’s ‘born on Christmas day.’ Perfect for your festive tot.

7. Ivy

Ivy’s made quite a lot of top baby names in the last few years. Meaning ‘faithfulness’, it’s a really cute baby name option.

8. Faith

Since Nicole Kidman named her daughter Faith, the name has risen in popularity and is a lovely, feminine name.

9. Angel

If you like this angelic name but worry that it may spur some teasing, how about opting for one of its lengthier versions Angelica or Angelina?

10. Snow

If you fancy selecting a slightly more unusual name for your Christmas, Snow could be for you. Just so long as your surname isn’t White…
