Any ideas for a winter inspired name for a girl ? It can't be related to flowers or leaves so Holly and Ivy are sadly not options....

I actually knew a girl called Winter. But that's not what you're after... How about Santa? ;)

Noelle?

I know an Xmas baby who is Noelle....or you could have Robin/Robyn

I also know a little girl called Winter.
I always in my head want to call her Summer.

Christmas smile
(it is a name, i saw it on a Bond film, with the classic line of 'but I thought Christmas only came once a year' - classic!)
how about a winter goddess name?

Hermione - the heroine of A Winter's Tale?

notany I'm not sure that James Bond line is going to sell the name to the OP! ;)

We have several Winters in the family tree - all boys.

How about Khione - minor Greek goddess of snow

Perdita
Blanche
Christabel
Thalia
Natalie
Natasha

Or one of the many versions of 'star'.

Wow, Khione is gorgeous. Is that Kee-OH-ney?

Quite scared a Kardashian will end up with that now.

Crystal
Larentia

Eira - Welsh for snow. Love the name but my 2 DDs were Spring and Summer babies.

I worked (years ago) with a lady called January

I have also come across an Autumn.

Other names that spring to mind are christmassey ones like Carol, Holly, Ivy, Noella, Angel, Epiphany, Mary, Joy, Star etc

Other maybe loosely connected winter names:
Snow
Orchid
Frostine/a
December
February
March
Crystal
Valentine/a
Amaryllis
Sparkle
Icelyn
Celyn - I think this maybe welsh for holly or ivy (Help Welsh Mumsnetters)

I misread the thread title and thought "winter's a nice name". Helpful?

I adore January. January jones pulls it off well!

Lucia, goddess of light
Freya, the Norse mother goddess
Isis
Hera

All winter solstice goddess myths

Thank you - some great ideas here ( but perhaps not Christmas......!) I particularly like all those winter goddesses and anything snow or ice related.
