  • If you’re expecting, you’ll have a million and one things to do before your little one’s arrival – whether it’s painting the nursery, buying the cutest baby grows, or picking a beautiful name.

    The latter, of course, is a tricky one. Choosing the perfect moniker is a task and a half. Do you take something from the list of the smartest baby names? Or attempt to revive one of the baby names going extinct? Perhaps it’s easier to take namespiration from the predicted popular baby names of 2020.

    But for those who are due in the merriest month of them all, it could be an idea to select a Christmas-themed baby name.

    There are so many adorable choices for anyone who is expecting in December. According to a survey by Emma’s Diary, names like Ivy, Robyn and Star come out on top when it comes to festive monikers for girls, and Gabriel, Noelle and Nicholas are popular for boys.

    How cute are they?
