I was just wondering where you all stand on using a name with a seasonal meaning - out of season?
I've LOVED Natasha for a long time, and was planning on using it when I was expecting in November and then in January (FYI it means "born on christmas day", so even that was a stretch) but now that I'm due in APRIL should I just save it for another baby?
Or is the meaning really not that big of a deal in your opinion?

To be honest I didnt even know thats what Natasha meant so the season thing wouldnt have even occurred to me. With that being said I still think its fine using names out of "season" I knew a Noelle born in July and never thought twice about it. If I like the name Ill use it regardless.

im prolly going to have this baby in DEC and i LOVE the name Noelle but worry that it would be way way way too cheesy. I dont think an April Natasha would be weird

People don't walk around with their birthday pinned on their shirt lol. It doesn't matter. I'm due in December and considering the name Summer for my baby girl. I think Natasha is a beautiful name.

(((lurking)))

I have a Natasha (GREAT name choice! LOL) who was born in September I've loved the name Natasha since I was a little girl and always knew that when I have a daughter, that's what I will name her (thankfully DH was on board). So it's totally cool to have a Natasha who was not born around Christmas! Although I've only discovered the meaning sometime later and it didn't really bother me. On one website I was on, it said Natasha means "conceived on Christmas" and she WAS conceived in December, but that was just a coincidence!

If you love the name, USE IT!! I never think of Natasha as a Christmasy name, despite it's meaning. I tend to think of Natalie, Noelle, Holly, and Ivy as more Christmasy, but I think they can be used on a baby at any time of the year.

I wasn't aware that Natasha was a Christmas-y name. I think you can use it any time of the year

Yay thanks girls! Well it's back in the running then
I guess with all the talk of meaning in baby name books I worried people would be like WHAT??
Julka, what did you use as a middle name for Natasha? I'm considering Anne (after Anne Shirley).

I'm glad you decided to leave Natasha on your list! I think it's a beautiful name no matter what time of year your birthday falls.

We did use Natasha as a mn for our youngest because of the meaning. She was born Dec. 22nd and we decided we wanted a name w/ holiday meaning but we didn't want it to be obvious. Natasha was the perfect choice because very few people know it means "born on Christmas".
