I don’t know about you, but my kid happens to be obsessed with Frozen. That means that when it comes to snowman names, the one she clings to most is — you guessed it — Olaf. That said, before the film’s 2013 debut, that seemed like somewhat of a silly name for a snowman. There’s a good chance you grew up during a time when Frosty was king, and no other snowman came after his snow throne. But snowman names are like pet names; they can be anything. Of course, some of the best snowman names have to do with snow. Since kids often build snow-people around the holidays, it makes sense for those icy figures to take on Christmas-themed monickers.

But that doesn’t always have to be the case. Is it the first snowfall of the season, and you’re looking for a solid snowman name for you or your child’s creation? With snowmen, there are no rules. You can go as wild as you want. But still, it’s fun to have a name that’s punny and appropriate. To help out, you’ll find 100 solid name contenders below for your snowman this year.

But before building a snowman, it’s important to know about famous snowmen in history. Yes, I’m being serious. Keep reading for some fascinating context, and then bookmark this page for snowman name ideas.

The History of Snowmen

Did you know that the very first snowman ever recorded was built in 1380? According to NPR, they probably occurred well before that without being documented. That means that, technically, each snowman you make is almost like a historical recreation. And that means that they all deserve a proper name, even though they might not have the longest life span.

Do snowmen deserve names? Of course. And, that’s not just the 900 viewings of Frozen talking. Snowmen help build a child’s imagination. Just like with people, each and every snowman is unique in its own way. They also help foster creativity and can become part of lifelong memories. Snowmen also aren’t the easiest to construct, so consider a finished snowman somewhat of an accomplishment. Sure, they may look easy, but piling snow can require a ton of arm strength. That’s why you might find yourself building a snowman alongside your child. It’s something to do together that’ll celebrate the winter season.

Maybe that’s one of the reasons why Frozen is so popular — it taps into everyone’s creative potential during a time when schools often get canceled due to snow. Just know that you’re never too old to build a snowman. It can even be a form of stress relief or a way to feel nostalgic. Along with your snowman, you’ll also need a mug of hot chocolate to really take in the moment. Now, onto the fun part: name-picking!
