We are expecting DC3 in December. Not looking for girl's names - DC1 & 2 are boys, so we've got a good idea of favourite girl's names for our shortlist.

One thing we've considered is whether to have a seasonal name, but we're struggling to think of many boy ones except Noel and Robin, which neither of us like. Any Christmassy boy's name suggestions?

Stephen - St Stephen's day is Boxing Day. Sylvester, which is New Year's Day in many countries. And of course, Nicholas after Santa Claus.

Stephen was very popular when I was growing up for Christmas babies

Liking Joseph and Gabriel and the 3 wise men smile

I did suggest Nicholas but DH giggled childishly about it sounding like "knickerless". So I guess that's out!

And a definite no to Herod. The Slaughter of the Innocents is not the sort of Christmassy association we want.

Jesus is surely just a little bit too Christmassy, yes? grin

I love Gabriel/Gabe! You have the perfect reason to use it!
Also my husband is called Michael because he was born at Christmas (Michaelmas).

I really like Leon being Noel backwards!! Brilliant. Love the name as well.
