They look good! I might not have thought of running the name down the stocking.

I guess what would have come to mind for me would be embroidering it at the top of the stocking. But it would be a lot smaller and maybe difficult with the longer name.

Cute!  Another way I can think of, but you'd probably have to run it down the foot not the cuff as well in your case, is surface slip stitch.  It's really easy, it's like embroidery but functionally making a slip stitch through the fabric.  It goes quickly, and if you goof easy to rip and re-do.  You could write it in cursive easily if you want, actually the less the 'pen' lifts from the 'paper', the easier it is at least end-weaving-wise.
