Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Noelle

Noelle is a more feminine rendition of Noël which comes from the Old French “noel, nael” meaning ‘Christmas’ from the Latin “natalis dies Domini” (birthday of the Lord). Noël is basically synonymous with Christmas, especially in the refrain of familiar Christmas carols. The masculine version of the name, i.e., Noel (pronounced KNOLL) is also in use. Noelle has often been bestowed upon little baby girls born on Christmas day (like Natalie). The name Noelle is not heavily used among English speakers but it has been in occasional use. It’s also ranked with mild-moderation in the Netherlands.

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME NOELLE

Noelle first appeared on the U.S. popularity charts in 1964 and almost immediately climbed to levels of moderation where it seems to be staying firm. We believe Noelle is a name never in danger of overuse or overexposure given its tight niche associations with the Christmas holidays. And we think it’s a super cute idea to name your December baby Noelle (even if some people find that a little too precious). Noelle is a beautifully delicate sounding name in its own right. It stands tall and proud January through November and then gets even more delightful in the month of December. If Noelle is just too “Christmasy” for you, consider Natalie (which also means Christmas day).
