When you adopt an Elf on the Shelf, you get to give him a name. If you're like me, you will stay up all night thinking of cute Christmasy names you think would be cool for an Elf. And if your kids are like mine, your suggestions will fall on deaf ears and you will wind up with an Elf named Zeus. But since I spent all night coming up with them, I don't want to waste my Elf name suggestions. Perhaps somewhere out there is a kid with the good sense to recognize a great Elf name when they hear it.
When I was a little girl, I'd go to bed every Christmas Eve and dream about the kitten I'd find under the tree in the morning. She would climb from her gift wrapped box directly into my lap and I would call her Kringle. Well, Santa never brought her and the name went to waste.
December is the month when all of the magic happens. December is the month when the world is merry and bright. Just the mention of the word "December" evokes visions of sugar plums. This makes December a cool name for an Elf...or anyone. My kids are lucky they weren't born in December is all I'm saying.
Last Christmas I typed my name into a Christmas Elf name generator. How exciting to find out my true name is Bijou Sparkly Toes. But it was awkward when I used my Elf name to introduce myself to the PTA. So I went back to my boring old moniker and filed Bijou Sparkly Toes away in case I ever needed a cool name for an Elf.
Pfeffernusse are German Christmas cookies. They taste bad, but the name is fun to say! Go ahead say it...Pfeffernusse, Pfeffernusse...you can't stop can you? Translated to English it means "pepper nuts" (which explains the flavor) but when naming the Elf, I would just go with Pfeffernusse and leave it at that.
Zeus has been with us for four nights now and I've gotten used to his name. He's named not after the Greek god, but rather after a Golden Retriever. Not just any old Golden Retriever either, but "The Dog Who Saved Christmas" in the movie of the same name. And since my six-year-old won't be getting a puppy under the tree Christmas morning to call Zeus, I think it is a rather fine name for our Elf.
Perfect for the holidays! Cute names too!!
Cute list, Bijou! Congrats on the front page.
Cute names for an elf. Personally my elf name would be Sybella :)
Cute names. I'm glad they didn't go to waste!
Not sure what elf on a shelf is but love the names! Had the same dream about the kitten - it was a basset hound with a big red bow one year - Wrinkles!
I never considered one but now that you mention it~yours are cute! I'm sure you can find a "doggy" elf name, Pup. :) Congrats on front page!
I pick "Elfis" with some blue suede shoes and bells on the toes.
Very creative!! Congratulations on the front page! If I were an elf I would want my name to be Magenta Forest.
Love these names....too cute!! lol
Love the Elf names. I'll have to see if I can find a kid or two who'll adopt one of them. I don't have an elf name *sniff*
Oh and my elf name is apparently Wacky Angel-Pants.
This is my favorite list ever. Elf names! how fun!
I think you should have invoked parental rights and named it Bijou Sparkly Toes. Now that rolls right off the tongue......Zeus.........not so much!
You are quite the lady of fun with these elf names. Congratulations on the front page spot.
Great list, as usual. And it's a wonderful choice for the front page! Congratulations!
haha! Very cute list...I love elves, and this list gives some great monikers.
I wanted an Elf name, too, so I found an Elf Name Generator. I got Lúthien Mithrandír. Not near as good as Bijou Twinkle Toes. (After all, who doesn't want to be named after French jewelry?) Soooo, I went in search of ones I like better and got Jolly Mistletoe, Helvetica Zestor and Lgyla. Hmmm.... I think I'll steal your elf name.
Pepper in the eyes! I never heard that one, but it made me laugh!
Hey girlfriend: How about Pepper? Auntie used to tell me if I didn't go to sleep, Santa would sprinkle pepper in my eyes! I adore that we're such kindreds. Would have stayed awake thinking up Elf names too.
