One of my favorite things about snow is how it looks from inside a building – like all of those decorative lights in windows. The light outside creates these really gorgeous reflections on the ground where I work. It’s such an enchanting sight for me to see during winter months when the days are shorter and there’s less sunlight than usual. And then at night? Those same decorations shine back up onto the sky creating what some people might say is a magical scene..though others might just call it cold :). Either way, I love seeing this beautiful natural phenomenon any chance I get.

The first name on this list may be familiar to you if you’ve ever seen The Lion King or other movies set in African jungles since it means “Snow” and refers to snow-capped mountains near Kilimanjaro’s peak; the mountain itself being called Mt. Meru by its native Kikuyu people (named after their god). [Text removed] Other meanings for ‘Meru’ include “a type of Indian dance where one person stands still while another dances around them” and “a sacred mountain that serves as the pillar of the world in Hindu mythology.”
The second name on this list is also a winter-related term, meaning “snow” or “hail,” which references – unsurprisingly – its origins: Norway (which is home to many mountains). The word ‘Berg’ comes from Norwegian dialect for “mountain.” If you’re looking for another word with similar roots, try German’s modern version of it: Bergwerk (“mine”). [Text removed] The French have a few names too; both words coming to us via Latin where they were once used to refer variously to an elevation such as a hill or mountaintop, or to a mountain peak.
A type of Indian dance where one person stands still while another dances around them (commonly found in the Northern part of India)
A sacred mountain that serves as the pillar of the world in Hindu mythology. [Text removed] andes is Spanish for “snow.” So, if you hear someone say ‘anada,’ chances are they’re referencing this South American country which has snow on its peaks year round! [text removed] The Mongolian term seems like it’s referring to an animal – but Dzud means “a winter period with prolonged cold temperatures” instead. [Text removed] There’s also Shigatse; a town at 14,00 ft elevation in Tibet.
Snow White: [text removed] This is one of the most familiar names meaning snow, and it’s also a girl’s name in Ireland! [Text removed] The full English translation for this term that reference a white person is snaw-braw – which means “snowbright.” [text removed] It’s no wonder why people would want to call themselves Snow White when they’re such an inspiring figure with their purity and kindness.
Summer Storm: This common meteorological event does have some relation to snow because storms often bring cold air at high altitudes, leading to winter precipitation like snow over higher terrain or mountain ranges. And so, if you hear someone say ‘summer storm,’ they’re referring to the snow!
Snowball: This is a name that means snow, and it’s also an activity – like throwing balls of ice/snow at people or objects. [text removed] It has two prominent variations in English slang too: you can call someone ‘a snowball’ when you want to insult them for being soft and easily influenced by others, or say ‘he threw a snowball’ as a way to mean he did something with no effort.”
Stardust: This meteorological term refers specifically to meteoric dust particles that are made up mostly of compounds containing iron and other metals; these materials become embedded into high-altitude clouds which then produce precipitation that falls from the sky as snow.
Snowstorm: “This is a name for any storm in which falling precipitation, other than hail or sleet, consists of flakes that are mostly massive and loosely packed so they fall with little bounce from the ground.” ”A blizzard is an intense winter storm characterized by strong sustained winds of at least 35 mph (56 km/h), low relative humidity, dumping of snow accompanied by thunder and lightning, and reduced visibility due to heavy snowfall” – this refers to both storms where there’s just a lot of light fluffy white stuff like what you see on your Christmas card mantelpiece but also violent winter storms that have high winds.
Cold snap: A cold snap can be described as a short period of time when the temperature drops below its typical level for that region.
Snowball fight: A snowball fight is an activity where participants throw snowballs at each other, trying to hit and knock down their opponents. A game can also be played by using two teams or sides in which one team tries to defend while the other team throws snowballs until they have successfully knocked out all members of the defending team.
Skidding: Skidding is what happens when you apply your brakes too hard on ice-covered surfaces so that your car starts sliding uncontrollably across it instead of stopping. This word comes from the verb slide – “to move smoothly along (something) without skidding”. If this happens on a slippery surface, it is also called fishtailing. Snowball: A snowball is an object that has been rolled up in some snow so that the ball of ice and snow can be thrown by hand at someone or something else like another person, car windshields, houses & trees. The word ‘snowball’ comes from when people would build up their original balls with more loose snow until they had one large enough to throw with power. They were said to have “a snowball’s chance” if there was no chance of success because everything was against them. Storm warning: Storm warnings are issued by meteorologists who anticipate dangerous weather conditions such as high winds, heavy rainfalls and blizzards
