25 Elf on the Shelf Name Ideas to Make Santa's Little Helper an Official Member of Your Family
The Elf on the Shelf book and its complementary figurine first came out in 2005 and has since become a beloved holiday tradition for many families. The elf typically arrives around Dec. 1 and stays until Christmas, keeping an eye on kids to make sure they are being good, then reports back to Santa. Each day, the elf is supposed to change their position, and hilarity typically ensues, with parents getting very creative (and sometimes even NSFW when the kids aren't around) with their elf's daily movements.
For those of you who are about to embark on your first year with Elf on the Shelf (or if your kids simply want to rename their old one), don't worry, we've got you covered. Before you can start finding fun places to stage your elf, you need the perfect name for this new member of your holiday family. After all, only once an elf has been adopted by a family and given a name do they get the magical Christmas powers to fly back and forth from the North Pole for a nightly report with Santa. Here are the best 25 name suggestions for your elf!
