Nameberry intern and guest blogger Danielle Miksza loves all things vampire, including the strange and wonderful world of vampire baby names. She enlightens us on the options.
Vampires seem to be everywhere these days: in books and movies, on television and the internet, even occasionally living next door. As a twenty year-old who believes Halloween should be declared a national holiday, I can’t help but be consumed by the vampire craze.
One reason for my vampire obsession is that they are portrayed as dark and lonely creatures nobody quite understands. As an only child, I was often lonely growing up. I did odd things such as talk to myself or giggle at absolutely nothing. People were a bit unnerved by me and kept their distance. So yes, when I read about a vampire feeling like an outcast from the rest of the world, I have an idea of what that feels like.
More reasons for my vampire fanaticism: I stay up all night; I hate the sunlight, and garlic does not agree with me. Who knows? I could be a bit of a vampire myself.
Once you look past the fangs and blood lust, vampires are actually quite attractive. Who could resist a guy with incredible strength, gorgeous eyes, pointy yet very white teeth, and a handsome name? Stephenie Meyer gave us girls one of the greatest gifts of all in her series Twilight: Edward Cullen. Just the thought of that immortal makes me light-headed. He’s rich. He’s gorgeous. And he’s telepathic. How often do you come across guys like that?
Even vampire babies need names, and some name-thirsty nameberryans are only too ready to conjure up some Gothic choices. Over on our message boards under Name Games, check out the Halloween-appropriate game: Name that Vampire Family.
The game and the names are hilarious….yet also strangely appealing. (Hmmmm, my teeth have been looking a little sharp lately, and I find myself feeling bizarrely most awake around midnight.)
