Rich with symbolism and characters, the holiday season provides a wealth of material to inspire names that range from beautiful and powerful to jolly and sweet, and any one of them would would be perfect for your Christmas Day arrival. Below, I've provided a list of Christmas baby names that would be perfect for your little one should they decide to give you the holiday gift of a lifetime.
If your baby does arrive on Christmas Day, you should know that the birthday is becoming exceedingly rare. In fact, Dec. 25 ranks dead last at 366th in possible birth dates, placing behind even Feb. 29 (the dreaded leap year birthday), according to The Daily Viz. There are a variety of possible reasons that range from the seasons people are most likely to get busy conceiving (that would be the holidays, folks) to the modern tendency to schedule births — moms and doctors prefer to enjoy their holiday, thanks. So if you're having a Christmas baby, it's most likely that your labor will begin on its own and won't be stopped by holiday hours. Should that happen, it's best to have a special name in your back pocket just in case. (And don't forget about the possibility of your baby coming on Christmas Eve! There's a list for that, too.)
