Eira
Which was my Grandmother's name. And is the Welsh for Snow.

I'm currently 39 weeks, with a girl - so my mother's longing for me to pop NOW, in order that the babe has to be named Eira. (My father's not so keen though - this naming suggestion has let the cat out of the bag how much he disliked his Mother in Law!)

Names meaning or with connection to "white"

Alban

Blanche
Candida (yes I know, I know. But a lovely word.)
Fenella

If I was feeling brave maybe just Snow for a girl.

I did have a December baby on a day exactly like today! Memories of a skiddy drive to hospital.

Wow I never knew there were so many genuine snowy names! ''Poly'' I love Eira you should go for it, maybe the snow is a sign that its the right name!

Flake for a boy?? smiles..

On a serious note

Karli (Turkish for snow)
Istas (Native American for snow)
Lumi, Lumikki (Finnish for snow)

I think Nevada means covered with snow or similar
