Comments for CHRISTMAS:

Has anybody actually called their child this? DON'T DO IT!

Most Christians (and others) celebrate Christmas on December 25. However, most Eastern Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas on January 7, according to the "old calendar."

If you gave your kid this name it would suffer a life of torment. Just think of Shannyn Sossmon naming her little boy 'Audio Silence'. Christmas would be WAY worse!

It's a nice word, but you wouldn't name a child "Pentecost", would you? Or what about Hanukkah? Halloween? :)

I once used this in a story I wrote about a girl who was born on Christmas Eve, therefore her name was such. I never thought that it would be considered foremost as a masculine name.

That is one heck of a weird name!

I really don't like the idea of naming your kid after a holiday. And, like during the summer, and other months where Christmas is a long ways away, their name will just sound weird. During Decemeber and the other Christmas months it would be cute, but otherwise, *gag*. Plus, what about all the adults and people complaining about how much stress Christmas causes? Then it sounds as if the child causes stress! Cute idea for a story, however, but not for a kid.

On "Three's Company", Suzanne Sommers character bore this name. On a espiode, she revealed her full name was Christmas Snow, however, she went by Chrissy of which she is better known.

I have never heard of a name as such, but people will be people.

Why is it acceptable to name a child Noelle or Natalie, but not Christmas?
-- KrisMichelle  9/3/2007
I do have to say it is a pretty sounding name, but I think "Noel" would be just as pretty and a little less awkward for the bearer.

I love the name Christmas for a girl, and I'd use it.

December 25, a holiday celebrated by Christians. Best holiday there is. (:
-- Brianna Angela  12/25/2007
It sounds weird at any time of the year, during Christmas and in the middle of July. It makes no difference. Besides, this name sounds like the type of name the sort of Christian wackos who religiously watch Fox News and believe there really IS a war on Christmas would choose for their daughter.

I like Christmas as much as the next guy but I will never name my kid this.

A famous, though fictional, bearer is Christmas Eve, a Japanese therapist engaged to Brian in Avenue Q.

I think Christmas is a very pretty middle name for a child born around the holiday. I don't understand why so many people find it weird. I mean there are also girls called Summer and the name doesn't sound weird in winter. She could go by Christie or Chrissy in case she didn't like Christmas.

On one of the James Bond films, I forget which, there is a girl/woman called Christmas Jones. I forgot who plays her as well - I don't have the greatest attention span when it comes to Bond movies.
-- Saffine Grace  2/23/2009
I guess the sound isn't that bad, but all I can think of is the holiday. To me this name is highly inappropriate for a child born on any day other than December 25.
-- emmiix3  3/27/2009
This, in my opinion, would be like naming your kid "birthday" or "4th of July". Who *does* that?
-- Ashvarden  5/2/2009
You can't go wrong with this name!
-- coolcatevan9  11/3/2009
Christmas is a cool sounding name, but I don't think it would work in real life. Keep it for a character or a pet.
-- vomiting  11/6/2009
It's a silly name to begin with, but knowing that it's the name of the disease that the last Tsarevich had makes it completely horrible in my opinion.
-- lcgirl20  12/23/2009
Why would you choose the name Christmas? If you really needed to have a Christmas themed name why not choose something like Holly, Noel or Ivy? I guess a good nickname would be Chrissy but I wouldn't ever use this name.
-- claremami  1/29/2010
Just odd. And even odder on a girl. But it does sound nice even with so many consonants and would be nice for a character.
-- Anonymous User  4/16/2010
Wow. This is a NAME.
-- Joy12  5/3/2011
Is this a freaking joke?

Madame Christmas from FullMetal Alchemist.

I know someone who told me his grandmother's last name was Christmas so her parents named her "Mary." Get it? Mary Christmas. That that's kind of cute, but I'd heistate making Christmas a child's first name. Maybe a middle name if the child was born on Christmas day.
-- KatarinaSu  1/18/2012
More suitable for a girl than a boy, and I really can't see it on anyone of the age of 10. It has a pretty sound, and if it wasn't the holiday I would consider using it possibly.
-- yellowstar24  7/20/2012
I'd prefer Noel (pronounced NO-el) for a boy, Natalie or Noelle (no-ELL) for a girl. They're less obvious, and wouldn't lead to so many jokes at Christmastime.

And by the way, I never heard of it meaning "Christ festival". My father told me it's a shortening of "Christ's Mass".
-- El is a Beth  12/31/2012
Maybe a middle name? Oh, and the nicknames are BEAUTIFUL!
-- SEC908  2/8/2013
There are actually two girls on Facebook called this. I was surprised since I've never heard of it. It's the rarest name I've seen so far.

No offense, but if I were to choose Christmas... Well, I wouldn't. Why not stick with Christine/Christina or the many variants? Christmas doesn't sound like a name.
