25 Days of Christmas: Natalya

Happy Holidays everyone! This year on S My Name is Sophie, I am going to profile 25 different Christmas names in the days leading up to the holiday. Let's start with Natalya.

Natalya means "born on Christmas Day." She has Russian origin, and currently stands at #828. Natalya (or her relatives Natalie and Natasha) would make a great name for a holiday baby, not just because of her meaning. She sounds very fresh and current; it would be an unexpected choice though.

Natalya could go by a couple different nicknames, including Nattie (the nickname of professional wrestler Natalya Neidhart), Lia/Lya, Tally, or Nat.

Check back tomorrow for the next Christmas name!
