I hope I'm over thinking this

DC2 due at Christmas. If it's a second boy we're pretty set on Joseph and have been since before I was pregnant. So now it's going to be Xmas I'm slightly worried Joseph is a bit themed!

Tell me I'm being silly. It's not like I'm going for Melchior or anything!

No worse than a Holly. .
Joseph is lovely. .

Ha. My old boss had a Holly and a Robyn. We kept asking him there was going to be a third called Tinsel

A girl could be Carol.

My friend's mum is Carol because she was born 22 December. I think that might be contributing to my mild concern....

Same friend has a cousin called Eve who's birthday is 2 days after Carol's

It's fine! Joseph is a lovely name and lots of little boys have that name with no mention of Xmas ever being made.

You're definitely overthinking it.

Joseph is a common enough name that nobody will think its themed. DH vetoed Joseph because he thought the child would get teased about Mary and Joseph despite being born in December... Of course there are lots of Josephs and they are never teased about Mary... Oh well...

I wanted a Christmas baby called Balthazar! I think Jospeh is fine too

You're overthinking! I have a Christmas Day baby named Caspar grin and no one gets that link either!

Definitely overthinking it. We loved Joseph too but I decided against it as I didn't like how Joe sounded in a Yorkshire accent and DH family is from Yorkshire.

Although we were in IKEA the other day and there was a little "Joooor" and I thought it sounded adorable 😂

Thank you all!

I have a Joseph born in December wink

You're definitely over thinking it smile
