Noel (sometimes written as nowell in English) is an alternate word for Christmas. The word comes from the French word meaning Christmas which derives from the Old French word , a variant of nael. The Latin origin is the word natalis (birth). According to the 18th century Irish linguist and historian Charles Vallencey, a more ancient common origin appears in the Hebrew word nolah (Hebrew letters nuwn waw lamed he), meaning to bring forth young. Subsequently, the Irish named December Mi Nolagh, meaning the month of the newborn. The Irish word for Christmas day was simply Nolagh.Although there is no Biblical use of nolah, another Hebrew word nephel is used Biblically to refer to an untimely birth.
