The names are holiday themed to reflect this month being the Christmas season.
The Lab states, "These names for winter are seasonal and may come back around this time next year, for a limited time."
Some of these names will be more popular than others. It's hard to imagine anyone with a serious manner renaming themselves "Ninnymuggins." Also, "Snowflake" in recent years in North American has come to mean thin-skinned and intolerant, and "Fruitcake" has come to mean "crazy," so their use may be limited as well.
Of the original list of 48 names from April 2020, only 18 are left: Takeda, Littlepaws, Alpha, Mysterious, Hexem, Atheria, Puddles, Rowley, Leeder, Cloud, Ravenhurst, Kiyori, Huntsman, Voxel, Dallas, Crisp, Mercury, and the option to go back to "Resident."
