                                  Answer:
   
   Yes. There are a number:
   
   Natalie
          Christmas Child
          
   Dolores
          Sorrow of the mother of our lord
          
   Noel
          Christmas
          
   Christopher
          Christbearer
          
   However, even such names are not always clear. For example, in Israel,
   "Natali" is considered a Hebrew name , meaning "my plant, etc." (or
   literally, "it was planted to me").
