Wintry Inspired Baby Names for New Year's Babies
While the holiday season may be over, it’s still the season of snow and cuddly sweaters. There are so many non-holiday related wintry baby names that would be lovely for a New Year’s baby. Here are a few of my favorites…
Meaning “Snow” and having a Latin origin, this name, pronounced to rhyme with “leave”, is feminine and unique.
Meaning: “star” and of Greek origin, the Aster flower has been considered enchanted and in ancient times it was thought that it could drive away evil (like Sage). In modern times, it’s considered a sign of love and patience.
Meaning: the exotic flower, it is a great name choice for parents who love floral names but want something more unique
Quite a pretty little girl’s name, the name comes from the —- god of new beginnings, Janus. (It’s also the name of a popular and lovely actress, January Jones)
Meaning “gift of god”, Thaddeus is a strong name, to be sure, but it might just be the perfect one for your little man. With a vintage feel and cool options for nicknames like Thad, Tad, or Thade.
Meaning “white field” and of English origin this name is cool in it’s full glory or shortened to “whit.”
Meaning “blessed” or more holiday specific, “White” is of Welsh origin. Although it’s commonly a nickname (for longer names like Guinevere) it’s pretty all on it’s own and has become much more common thanks to stars like Gwen Stefani.
While it’s of French origin, it’s become a well loved name in English cultures too. Meaning “beautiful” it is also pretty as the shortened version of elegant names like Anabella or Isabella. It was one of the Top 100 most popular baby names in the 1880′s, you know, if you like vintage things.
Meaning “fair” and of Irish origin, Finn is a name with quirk, energy, and charm, this name comes from Irish mythology where Finn MacCool was a warrior with mystical powers of wisdom and generosity.
Meaning red, this name has been growing in popularity, probably thanks to its owner Scarlett Johansson, but this name has been full of southern charm since back when Miss Scarlett O’Hara claimed it.
