40+ Baby Names Inspired By Winter

Sharing is caring!

Two years ago, I gave birth in the heart of winter.

All my other babies have been born on warm days in the summer and fall. But this little one arrived with a snowfall, and it was the most beautiful experience. While the degrees plummeted outside, I was inside, bundled in flannel sheets with a brand new, precious baby in my arms. Heaven!

40+ Baby Names Inspired By Winter

Winter is a lovely time to have a baby. Perhaps, my favorite. It was just so cozy!

The warmth, the weather, and the extra dark days inspire many names; some that might just be perfect for your baby! So whether you give birth during the winter months, conceive during this season, or just love what winter represents – consider one of the following for your little darling!

Winter — Too obvious? Well, Winter, or Wynter if you want to get fancy with the spelling, is a a great first or middle name for both boys and girls.

Neve — Italian for snow, isn’t it gorgeous? Neva is another option.

Jenara — A derivative of January. Or, skip the spin on January and just go with that, like January Jones’ parents did.

Jack — A la Jack Frost!

Holly or Ivy — Two beautiful winter plants.

Alaska — I just read a book, Looking for Alaskaand the character by that name is vibrant! Now I’m in love with it for a baby name. Strong and fierce!
