Just for fun!!

If you had a little snow baby on a day like today...What would be an appropriate name?

Neva (or Neve, pronounced 'Nehv', like Neve Campbell)

Or Eirlys or Eirwen (Welsh)

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!)

sneachta (mwah ha ha ha haaaa) Irish for snow.

Names meaning or with connection to "white"


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

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

Aurora, although you stand no chance of seeing it if it's snowing!

Snowdrop (well flowery names are very 'in' at the moment)
Blizzard (Lovely cool name for a boy - if you'll excuse the pun)
Slush and Sleet (for twins)

atthewelles Fri 18-Jan-13 16:14:40

Oh and the Irish for snow is Sneachta- pronounced Shnokta. No? No takers?

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!

Eyah - what you say when you fall over

I know a Nieve who was born during a snowstorm. Nieve is Spanish for snow, her mum has European Languages degree.

Arianwen - Welsh for white silver, or any Welsh name ending in 'wen'

Flake for a boy?? smiles..

On a serious note

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

I think Nevada means covered with snow or similar
