It's the day after Thanksgiving... time to start the Christmas music! I love listening to Christmas music from morning until night, every day until Christmas is over. There are tons of names inspired by Christmas and, more specifically, it's music. To begin this holiday season, I have gathered names taken from Christmas song titles. Of course, a lot of these are names from the general Christmas season, but it's fun to seek inspiration from the titles alone!

Angel - Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Bell - Jingle Bell Rock

Blue - Blue Christmas

Carol - Carol of the Bells

Christmas - White Christmas

Darling - Merry Christmas, Darling

Drummer - The Little Drummer Boy

Emmanuel - O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Eve - Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)

Faith - Faith of our Fathers

Frost - Frosty the Snowman

Holiday - Happy Holiday

Holly - A Holly Jolly Christmas

Ivy - The Holly and the Ivy

Joseph - Joseph and Mary's Boy

Joy - Joy to the World

Maria - Ave Maria

Mary - Mary, Did You Know?

Merry - We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Midnight - It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Nicholas - Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Nick - Little Saint Nick

Noel - The First Noel

River - River

Rudolph - Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Shepherd - While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night

Silver - Silver Bells

Snow - Let It Snow

Wenceslas - Good King Wenceslas

Winter - Winter Wonderland

It's kind of a stretch, but what about Mele Kalikimaka? The Hawaiian way to say Merry Christmas could be a cute name if shortened... Kali, Kiki? I guess the same could also be said for Feliz Navidad... Navi?

Have I missed any? What is your favorite name inspired by a Christmas song title?
