Thread: Creepy names

  1. #1

    Exclamation Creepy names

    I'm writing a novel and I need some names for these types of characters
    ~Mermaids/Mermen
    ~Vampires
    ~Werewolves
    ~Shape shifters
    ~Seductors/Seductresses
    ~Genies
    ~Fairies
    ~Angels
    ~Demons
    ~Ghosts
    ~Zombies
    ~Witches
    I want them to have meanings, for example my main characters name is Magna and it means Strength which matches her. So if it's a demon name, for example, it should mean something like deceptive or evil. Please help!

    Some ideas:

    Mermaids / Mermen / Fairies
    Adriana / Adrian = "of the sea"
    I'm still not sure what kind of names you want since I don't know who your characters are, but maybe Greek names like Kyriake? Sirens, similar creatures to mermaids, were in Greek mythology. I suggest researching sirens, actually, considering the list of creatures you have here.
    Aquila = "eagle"

    Angels and Demons
    For angels and demons, invent anything with "el" which means god. That's what most of the ones appearing in mythology / religious texts have. For example MichaEL, SamaEL, HaniEL, SariEL, ShamsiEL, GabriEL and RaphaEL are all names of supposed angels / fallen angels (I guess fallen angels are just kinda demons, really.) If you need a feminine name, make an "el" name and just stick an "A" on the end like Michaela, Raphaela, Gabriela etc.
    Random invented ideas:
    Liriel / Liriela
    Zephael / Zephaela
    Sorinel / Sorinela
    Avriel / Avriela
    Yenael / Yenaela
    You get the idea.

    Ghosts, Zombies and Witches, Seducers / Seductresses
    Technically they are all people and will have ordinary people names, but they would be time appropriate (so, a medieval name for a medieval witch / ghost.)

    So I went with meaning more so than creepiness. I'm pressed for time, so I can only do girls - sorry!

    ~Mermaids
    Beryl - a seagreen jewel
    Calypso - sea nymph who kept Odysseus captive
    Marina - from the sea
    Maris - of the sea

    Nerine - sea-nymph
    Nerissa - of the sea
    Pelagia - the sea
    Sula - large sea bird
    Thalassa - from the sea
    Ula - sea jewel
    ~Vampires
    (using "dark" as the base search for this)
    Adrienne - dark, rich
    Darcy - dark
    Dee - black, dark
    Ebony - a dark, hard wood
    Garnet - a dark red gem
    Kerry - dark; dark-haired

    Maureen - dark-skinned
    Melanie - dark-clothed

    Magena - the coming moon
    Neona - new moon
    Selena - moon

    ~Shape shifters
    Sorry...apparently no names mean change...Maybe a modernized form of an old name? Like Emmalee or Abbygail?

    ~Seductresses
    Hermosa - beautiful
    Ilona - beautiful
    Jacinda - beautiful, comely
    Jamila - beautiful
    Keely - beautiful

    Shifra - beautiful
    Alida - beautifully dressed
    Alina - bright, beautiful

    Farrah - beautiful or pleasant

    That's all I have time for. I might be back later with more suggestions!

    I'm back!

    ~Genies
    Why do no names mean magical (that I could find, anyways?) I think nymphs and such, so maybe all the sea nymph names I previously listed, plus Echo - the nymph who fell in love with Narcissus.
    ~Fairies
    Fay - fairy, elf
    Shea - from the fairy fort
    Ella - elf, beautiful fairy woman
    Titania - queen of the fairies from A Midsummer Night's Dream
    Aubrey - bond ruler, elf ruler
    Elvira - elf-coucil, excelling
    Luella - elf
    Nissa - friendly elf or brownie

    ~Angels
    Angela (Angelica, Angie) - angel, messenger
    Seraphina - the highest order of angels are the Seraphim
    Arella - angel messenger

    ~Demons
    Most people don't want to name their kids "bad," so nothing there

    ~Ghosts/~Zombies
    See above. Although I thought Lilith had something to do with ghosts. My book must be flawed.

    ~Witches
    Anything to do with the elves. They're the most magical creatures I can find.

    Mohana means "bewitching, infatuating, charming" in Sanskrit. This could work for a couple of areas of naming.
