Santa’s Reindeer Names

In Clement C Moore’s 1823 poem, “A Visit from St. Nicholas” also known as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” the names of Santa’s reindeer are :

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen.  He must’ve forgotten good old Rudolph!

An except from the poem reads,

“When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,
with a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and call’d them by name:
“Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!
“On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixem!

“To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
“Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
