What are the names of the reindeer belonging to Santa Claus?

Names of Santa's reindeer

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen

Rudolf was not part of the original reindeer but came later from the song - Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer
Max wanted to recall all the reindeer names. He tried to recite them by singing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. All he wants for Christmas is 100 fake and real candy canes. Strait, down and up, ones you can walk with as a cane. Here he is with a changing flavored candy cane. Max said it tasted like gum. According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.
Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.
Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.
Very interesting...
