Nature Namemas: Celyn

Holly is the evergreen scrub or small tree with red berries on it. The are found in the subtropical regions of the world. There are over 200 species of holly that date back hundred and hundreds of years. In my house we have fake holly sitting on our coffee table and dining room table. They make beautiful centerpieces. In some cultures holly leaves are used to make daily teas. 

Baby Name 
At first glance I am sure many people will think the name is for girls but actually Celyn is a boy name. It is pronounced KELL-in. In Welsh the -lyn ending is used on boys. In the little country of Wales Celyn is ranked in the top 100 but is very unpopular elsewhere around the world. In 2017 no little boys in the US were given the name and just 5 girls bare it. 

Christmas Association 
In Welsh, Celyn means holly. Holly is a universal symbol for Christmas. With Holly being used as a girls name most of the time I think Celyn is a nice way to honor a Holly or Christmas while using a subtle name.
