Are you expecting a winter baby in 2024? Congratulations! One of the most exciting (and sometimes daunting) tasks is choosing the perfect name for your little bundle.

If your due date falls in the winter months, why not consider a name inspired by the season? Winter-inspired names can evoke feelings of cosiness, wonder, and beauty, making them a lovely choice for your little one.

As a Mum of two winter babies (both boys)  I have a soft spot for this theme so I've put together a list of my favourite winter-themed baby names to  help you find the perfect name for your little one. 

I would love to hear to which ones you love?

Classic Winter-Inspired Names

1. Aurora: This name means "dawn" and is associated with the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, a stunning natural light display seen in high-latitude regions. It's a beautiful and celestial choice for a winter baby.

2. Elsa: Unless you have been living under a rock you will know this name from   Disney's Frozen. Elsa is a name that conjures up images of snowy hillsides and has a touch of magic to it. 

3. Ivy: This classic winter name represents endurance and resilience, making it a perfect name for a baby born in the winter.

4. Joy: This simple yet meaningful name captures the essence of cheer, perfect for the joyful season of winter and the Christmas (in July!) Sprit.

5. Ember: This name brings to mind the glow of a cosy open fire on a cold winter's night. It's a unique name with a touch of warmth.

6. Colden: A modern twist on the classic name "Cole," Colden has a crisp, wintry feel that's both strong and distinctive.

7. Storm: For those who love the dramatic beauty of winter weather, Storm is a bold and powerful name choice.
