Baby Names Inspired By Christmas Movies

Posted: 12/23/11 07:33 AM ET

Looking for Christmas names for your holiday-season babe? Well, you can forget about those old chestnut choices like Noel/Noelle, Holly, Natalie, Eve, Merry, Carol and Claus.

Alonzo was the name of both the father and the brother (both called by nickname Lon) in the Smith family in this "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" flick, Meet Me in St. Louis, starring Judy Garland. This dashing Latinate name, which has always ranked in the Top 1000, is ready for wider use. Don't like Lon? You can call him Al.
