  1. We were struggling to come up with a boy name that our families could pronounce, they speak more Spanish than English, and we came across Noel during the holiday season and we just loved it. Especially during the holiday season, it seemed to fit our experience. I like the name Noel because not a lot of people have that name, especially where we are from and where we live so it’s more unique and we wanted a more unique name because we struggled to get pregnant. One thing I don’t like is people struggle to pronounce it without thinking he is a girl.
