What is Mrs. Claus’ first name?

Dear Ernest,

What is Mrs. Claus’ first name?

Thanks, Bill

Hi Bill,

I’ll tell you, Bill I haven’t the foggiest idea.

You see, Mr. and Mrs. Claus are very private people, despite their very public roles. I am in the delicate position of knowing many things and I have been charged with being a spokesperson for the North Pole. It’s a great responsibility. And some things, being private, I just won’t share.

But on this particular question I have to be honest and say that I just don’t know.

There has been some speculation about her first name. Television programs and movies have called her everything from Jessica to Josephine to Aunt Edna to Victoria. But none of those are actually correct.

I have always addressed her as Mrs. Claus. There isn’t a written rule about it here at the North Pole, but nobody here would DARE address her as anything else. Even Santa calls her Mrs. Claus. (Although — every now and then, he’ll call her “honey” too.)

I think this is because Santa shows such care and respect for Mrs. Claus. He demands that we are polite around her and he gets very upset when she has to intervene in arguments between the elves. Mrs. Claus is very dignified and warm. She is well mannered and polite. Santa always opens doors for her, seats her at the table and makes certain she dresses warmly when going outside. Because Santa treats her like a queen, the rest of us do too.
