How do I choose my recipient's name and pronunciation?

We are proud to have an ever growing database of names, and the first step you'll need to take is simply entering your child's name to see if it comes up.

In the Santa will say... section, you can select the Listen button to hear exactly how Santa will pronounce the name.

If this doesn't sound quite right, select Try other options, and you will see a list of close matches that may be what you're looking for, or nicknames that you can use instead. Remember that once you pick one, you can still change the spelling of your child's name without changing the pronunciation.

Still not right? Users who have purchased an early Magic Pass have the option to request a new pronunciation, and record exactly how it sounds, so that the elves can get it added to our database! Simply follow the instructions in the menu and wait for an email update. Just remember that it can take time to add, so make sure you make your requests early in the season!
