Genealogist Liz Yule is used to festive jokes about her surname, but Yule is just one of a number of seasonal surnames that exist. Christmas is of course the most festive example, particularly when coupled with the forename Mary. But how about Bell, White or Snow? Or those representing festive blooms, such as Ivy.
