'Tis the season of giving... and for some people that could literally mean giving birth. So,if you're expecting a little bundle of joy on December 25th, why not name them after the holiday they were born on?

No, you don't have to name your new born after St. Nick or any of his reindeer, these adorably festive baby names give off just the right amount of Christmas cheer.

If you're expecting a bouncing baby boy under the Christmas tree, names like Joseph, Christian, Shepherd, Gabriel, and Winter (Wynter) are perfect for a handsome holiday baby. Or, if you are planning for a little girl, names like Holly, Noelle, Eve, Stella, Merry, and Belle are popular for a Christmas cutie.

You can check out more Christmas inspired baby names on the Baby Center website.
