We may call him Santa, but Christmas' leading man has many other names currently and historically, including Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, Père Noël, Babbo Natale and Father Frost, to name a few. The shorthand moniker "Santa" may derive from the Dutch words "Sinterklaas," a name for St. Nicholas, but some believe that it evolved from the working-class British accent pronunciation of St. Nicholas, which sounds like "Saint'ny Claus."
