Welcoming a new Elf this year? Then look no further because we have all the fun ideas for Elf on the Shelf names you don’t want to miss.
Picking a name for your scout elf is important, he or she will have that name for years to come.
Plus it gives them their Christmas magic so they are ready to fly back and forth to the North Pole each night.
Let us help you brainstorm with this list of amazing options that include famous elves, Christmas-inspired names, food-inspired, funny, and much more.
Whether your elf is a boy or a girl, we have all the best names!
How do you pick an Elf on the Shelf name?
We allowed our daughter to pick and she came up with Peanuts. Not really based on anything but she was like 3 at the time so we went with it. 😀
I think brainstorming as a family is probably one of the best ways to pick an elf name.
What does your family love? Sports, movies, etc?
If you have several children but only one elf then maybe have them each pick a name and put them in a hat for a friendly drawing to see what their special name will be.
Either way, I’m sure your scout elf is going to love it!
