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.
The recent retelling of the Snow White tale, Mirror, Mirror, retains the evil, vengeful, jealous character of the stepmother/witch—this time giving her the name Clementianna- and casting a zealous Julia Roberts in the part. No doubt, when choosing a name, most parents would prefer the more traditional Clementine, without the elaboration of two more syllables.
