Etymology & Historical Origin - Natalee

Natalee is an Americanized respelling of Natalie. Natalie is the French form of the Latin name Natalia, which means "Christmas Day.” The Latin word “natalis” translates to ‘birthday’ (but in particular reference to Christ’s birthday, or Christmas day). Natalie has been a popular name for girls since the early 1900’s, particularly in France and English-speaking countries (while the Russians use Natalya and Natasha). It has often been bestowed upon baby girls born on or around Christmas Day for obvious reasons.

Popularity of the Name Natalee

Natalee is a respelling of the classic girl’s name Natalie. Such spelling mutations are unique to and occur mainly in the United States. Natalee is yet another example of this trend. The name first appeared on the female naming charts in 2003 in response to the ϋber-popularity of Natalie. Remarkably, the name advanced over 400 positions on the charts in one short year (2005). Not coincidentally this was the same year that Natalee Holloway’s name was front-page news across America as the girl who tragically went missing in Aruba. An outright media frenzy followed the botched investigation of the case, and so American parents were constantly reminded of this girl’s name (and her unique spelling). Today, Natalee has settled at levels of low-moderate usage on the charts and we don’t expect her to advance much further up. The competition of “Natalie” name choices is just too stiff, and the spelling of Natalee in particular is reserved for parents who like the cutesy “-lee” suffix.
