Halloween Names

Spooky ghosts and ghouls and goblins, witches and vampires and monsters, they all come out to haunt us on All Hallows’ Eve. But if you’re looking for Halloween names, you don’t have to go as far as Lucifer or Lestat or Morticia.


Here are a dozen Halloween names that you can actually consider using for your baby.  For more ideas, there are loads of great suggestions contributed on our forum about Halloween names–check it out!!

Boris Karloff, who played Frankenstein’s monster, was William Henry Pratt before taking on the more exotic stage name of Boris. A Russian saint’s name, Boris has rarely been used for babies in this country—possibly because of this very Boris Karloff fear factor. But it has more benign namesakes like tennis champ Boris Becker and writer Boris Pasternak.
