I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.

If you love the cold and are on the lookout for some good names inspired by winter or fall, then you've come to the right place. The seasonal names below were influenced by a variety of cold-weather related terms that are always used more often whenever the chilly part of the season rolls around. Everything from winter slang and clothing worn during this time of the year to animals and plants closely associated with cold to iconic places or fiction associated with winter will be found below.

The idea for this article came to me last winter when my sister and I were making a list of potential baby names while it was snowing outside; campfire going and all. Thinking back on the memory makes me really appreciate family. I hope the list below will help you come up with that perfect name for your newborn, and if it doesn't, I at least hope that the article gives you a little inspiration to discover a name on your own. In either case, thank you for taking a look and best wishes to you, your family and the family yet to come (or just arrived).

Quick Tip for Coming Up With Baby Names

Don't be afraid to think outside the box. Even if you're not sure about a name, stick it on the list; you can always cross it off later. There will be some people who think a certain name is "stupid" or "weird," but a lot of people throughout history have had such names and now they are considered "clever" and "unique". There's nothing wrong with standing out and being different, after all, the name doesn't make the person, it's the person that makes the name.

To Cold or Not To Cold

Would you ever take your young child on a cold-weather camping trip?

One thing most people can agree on is that when latter half of the year comes around, listening to Christmas and holiday music becomes much more appealing. Isn't it funny how this time of the year, this kind of music can fill our hearts with kindness more than any other tunes permeating the airwaves.

I have a cousin named Christmas who comes to visit during the holidays every year. She always wants to go out for karaoke, where she always chooses songs about Christmas. We always have fun.

I have come to regard November as the older, harder man's October. I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures. If puts my mind in a different place than October. It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer's death as winter tightens its grip.
