Holiday is a gender-neutral name of Old English origin, deriving from the words “holy day.” Once used to refer to holy days in the Christian calendar, such as Christmas and Easter, it can now mean any kind of celebration. Baby’s birth will certainly be a cause to celebrate, so why not mark the occasion by giving them this cheerful name? In the UK and Ireland, “holiday” is also used to mean “vacation,” further associating the name with fun, joy, and relaxation. Holiday is also a surname, most famously borne by jazz singer Billie Holiday as her stage name.
