Why Elf Names?

A Christmas elf is a little elf that helps Santa Claus at the North Pole. In popular culture, elves associated with Christmas are pictured wearing green or red clothing and sporting pointed hats and ears.

Most depictions of them have humanoid features, although sometimes they are shown as fuzzy creatures with tails. The common belief is that Santa's elves are responsible for various chores, including creating presents and maintaining Santa's reindeer.

Some believe that the álfar of Norse mythology, also known as the huldufólk, the 'hidden people', are the progenitors of the elf. Louisa May Alcott initially mentioned them in her 1856 novel Little Women.
