For Halloween, what could be more bewitching than the names of witches? And the good thing is that they’re not all hideously ugly with warts and moles and hair on their chinny-chin-chins. And they’re not all totally evil either. In addition to the traditionally witchy witches, pop culture has brought us some who are nice and funny and even beautiful—think CharlizeTheron, JuliaRoberts, MichellePfeiffer, Kim Novak. Here’s a mix of possible witch-inspired names for your Halloween baby.
In the sixties sitcom Bewitched, Tabitha is the young half-witch daughter of Samantha (whose own name shot to popularity as a result of the show). Tabitha, which has its own quirky charm, reached its peak a decade later, but just might make a comeback after being chosen for one of their twin daughters by SarahJessicaParker and MatthewBroderick.
