If you need to name your Elf on the Shelf, you’ll want to download this free Christmas elf name generator printable. It’s a fun way to name a brand new elf without the stress of trying to think of the best name.
When naming your elf, you’ll want your kids to have input. But sometimes, little kids can have some odd ideas about what the name of an elf should be. Don’t get me wrong, I love our Elf on a Shelf names – Ice Cream and Hiro – but, I would have preferred cute names like Snowflake or funny elf names like Mister Twinkletoes.
There is definitely some stress related to the Elf on the Shelf. There is so much planning to make everything perfect to keep the Christmas tradition exciting. There is enough stress during the holiday season. The last thing you need is for selecting the name of a new elf to become stressful.
So how do you come up with the perfect name for your scout elves? Well, in all honesty, any name is great. But, having a name that evokes the Christmas spirit is extra special.
All of the names that are on the Christmas elf name generator printable are full of Christmas cheer. They’re related to winter, Christmas movies, sweet treats, etc.
New to Elf on the Shelf?
Congratulations! This fun Christmas activity will keep you busy all Christmas season. It can be a bit overwhelming as a first time elf owner to try to keep up with it all.
Using this free generator is just one of the many ways to ease the stress of the Christmas holiday season. Don’t worry, you’ll be a pro by next year!
Do you need to use a name generator to pick out a name?
No! Children or the whole family can choose their own unique name for their Scout elf. This is just for those that would like a different way to select their scout elf names.
How Does the Elf Name Generator Work?
For the elf’s first name, the child will select the letter in the alphabet that that corresponds with their first name.
For the elf’s last name, the child will select name from the month of the year they were born.
At the bottom of the sheet, they can fill in their new official elf name.

Can I use Any of the Name Generators for my Elf?
Of course! But maybe people have asked me specifically for more feminine or masculine names. I thought it was best to include those as options as well. You can use all three of them to select your name and your child select which one they like the best.
Can I use the Generator for an Elf Pet Name?
Yes, you can use the generator for a pet’s name, reindeer name, baby’s name, etc.
