    Alternatives to Salem?

    Lately I've been crushing on Salem. I love the sound of it and the connection to the Salem Witch Trials don't bother me. What is prevent me from using it is the only girl's name OH and I can agree on is Blaire which reminds everyone of the Blair Witch Project. A sibset of Blaire and Salem is just too witch-y for me.
    Any alternatives would be much appreciated.
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire

    Salome and Shalom are derived from the same source as Salem, I believe.

    Maybe Sable or Lilium?

    Shiloh? It's a Biblical place name with a similar sound and a unisex feel. (I love Salem, by the way, although I wouldn't use it myself because of the witch trials)
