25 Days of Christmas: Olive

Today's Christmas baby name is Olive. Currently, Olive is ranked at 416. She peaked in the 1880s, coming in at 83. She never has left the top 1000, but she came pretty close in 2007, when she ranked 999. Nowadays Olive's right on trend, and rising quickly.

There are many famous Olives, both real and fictional. Drew Barrymore just had a baby Olive, and Sacha Baron Cohen has one as well. Olive is a reindeer, and also the girl from Little Miss Sunshine, played by Abigail Breslin. The most well-known Olive would be Olive Oyl, Popeye's girldfriend.

Olive connects to Christmas in many ways. The color olive green is a popular one for Christmas. Paired with maroon, it reminds us all of the holiday season. Her meaning of "olive tree" is directly correlated with peace, which is something we all try to focus on during the holidays. Olive would make a lovely, subtle choice for a Christmas baby girl.
