  • "I named my daughter Noelle because I thought it sounded so beautiful. It's easy to pronounce and write, but I was surprised at how many people want to spell it "Noel". She is only 2 1/2 now, but so far, i have not come across this name in her daycare. (There are 3 Mia and 2 Miya and 2 Mila... and it is not a big daycare!) I still think Noelle is a beautiful and unique name. I hope she appreciates it when she gets older. If not, her middle name is Abigail." May. 16, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "Love! My baby girl is due December 4th, and this is one name my husband and I finally agreed on! I've always loved the name anyways, but it happens to work out that she'll be a winter baby :-) ." Aug. 17, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "Not so much growing up but as an adult, I'm very happy to be "Noelle". But like so many others here, a lot of people call me "Nicole". I can't imagine why but apparently it's a wide-spread thing. I can't believe it's just because they're both French "N" names. Oh. And I'm sure it's true for you others too. Everyone who does it is sure they're the first to make the mistake. Just like everyone's sure they're the first to think of the "first Noel" connection. We are sheep! -N." Feb. 8, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a Noelle Katherine. I love the name Noelle - I do get called Nicole a lot though. Most people get it right... It seems like older folks are the ones who make the Nocole mistake, perhaps since they're more familiar with the name?" Jan. 16, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Noelle Stephanie - Born December 27. I love it and have always loved my name. Everyone things it's beautiful and unique. However, I have been called Nicole a lot. They even see Noelle on and email and write back "Nicole." I don't know what it is about the name, but would be interesting to hear from a lexicologist! My nicknames from close friends were always Ellie or Elle. My mom calls me Noelley or Noellers!" Apr. 22, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I've seen the name Noelle Jhanay, born two days before Christmas. She always gets called Nicole! Usually by older folks but we just figure it's because Noelle isn't a very common name around here. Nell is a nickname she often goes by. Quite a unique girl, so the name suits her well." Mar. 29, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Noelle. My middle name is Rose, and I love it. I love it when I go to a Christmas event and hear "my Christmas song". I have a big family so when it goes on, the whole family in turn turns to me with a smile or a wink and I LOVE it. My nickname is "noe" and THAT I hate. It gets worse when my little sister and mom start saying stuff like "No-p, No-q, No-r, No-Z, that's why we call you No-e!!!"" Sep. 8, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I want to name my first baby/daughter Noelle. I think its so unique and beautiful. She will be born late November early December & i LOVE christmas time out of the whole year. I just need to find a middle name just as beautiful." Jul. 22, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "Maybe some parents conceived on Christmas. Just a thought to the narrow-minded comment." Jan. 29, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "Noelle is a beautiful name....and it works so very well as a middle name as it flows so well. We are considering giving our daughter Noelle as a middle name....she's due in a couple of months....September not December...but I don't think that matters...." Jul. 10, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is unique. I never thought that my parents would name me like this. At first, I wanted to change it but then, I learned to appreciate it. I have a schoolmate that has the same name, and honestly, I became sad 'cause I thought that I was the only Noelle is school." Jun. 13, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name and I was born on Christmas eve. But I don't understand people naming their children Noelle if they are not born in Dec. The Name literally means "Born on Christmas" so why would you call your child that if they were not? I was named after the Singer from the 50's and 60's, Andy Williams's Daughter who was also born at Christmas." Oct. 5, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "hey!! I'm thirteen and my name is Noelle and i think that it is the best name ever! It's not too original but at the same time not too plain. I am born in April so I am kind of sick of people asking me if I'm born on Christmas but it really isn't THAT much of a problem. I still think that my name is AWESOME!!" Aug. 8, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Noelle is not my first name, but my middle name.

I always get lots of compliments (much more than I get questions or comments about christmas). It is unique, but not strange or obscure, and very beautiful. Plus, it sounds lovely with my last name. I'm glad my mother decided to name me Noelle, even though I was born in April!" Jul. 6, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I really think you don't have to be a December baby if parents love the name and they want to call their daughter Noelle, I think they have every right to use it. There is no law to prevent you from doing that." Feb. 7, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Noelle, too! I was born in 1962... So I'm an older version! It was a challenge as a kid back then, I wanted to be like the other girls. But I love it now! My husband and I bot have unique names and we were both teased, so I gave my kids gender specific names, common, non trendy and easy to spell." Nov. 16, 2014: Report as inappropriate
