10 Beautiful Girl Names For Babies Born Around Christmas

1. Holly

A beautiful and popular girl’s name for December babies. Holly is of course, taken from the winter Holly tree so is also inspired by nature.

2. Ivy

You can’t have Holly without Ivy, right? Ivy was a name popular in bygone days but has made a reappearance in recent years. Ivy also means ‘Faithfulness’.

3. Eve

A lovely name for girls born on the 24th (Christmas Eve) or the 31st (New Year’s Eve). Eve is also the name of the first woman in the bible and in Hebrew, derived from ‘Hawwah’ which means ‘Life’.

4. Noelle

The feminine of ‘Noel’ and originally a French name, meaning ‘Christmas’. Ideal for babies born on the 25th!

5. Robin

Originally a boy’s name taken from the Germanic name Robhrod, meaning ‘fame’, Robin has grown in popularity as a girl’s name and works very well for boys OR girls. So even if you don’t yet know the sex of your baby, this name will suit both!

6. Joy

Meaning ‘delight’ or ‘happiness’, greeting a new little girl at Christmas is sure to bring joy to the entire family. So what better name to choose?

7. Nollaig

Irish for Christmas, this is a big favourite in Ireland and can be used for girls and boys alike.

8. Carol

Short for Caroline, ‘Carol’ means ‘Joyous Song’. What better name for a little girl born over the festive season?

9. Angel

If your little Angel arrives at Christmas, this is a beautiful name to gift her with. Angela, Angelica and even Evangeline are longer forms of the name and are equally beautiful.

10. Gloria

“Gloria in excelsis deo!” Even though the word ‘Gloria’ (Latin for ‘Glory) has been around for centuries, it wasn’t used as a name until the 20th Century when George Bernard Shaw used it as a name for a character in his play You Never Can Tell. So it’s fairly new!
