One of the most recognizable images of Halloween is that of a witch riding her broomstick across a full moon, which explains why trick-or-treat expeditions have long featured little girls garbed in black with tall pointy hats and maybe a few warts and moles. But pop culture has given us a variety of witches, some of which are actually nice and comical and even beautiful. So if you’re looking for a baby name that subtly references the holiday, here’s a mix of unusual witch-inspired names way beyond the expected Samantha and Sabrina.


In current pop culture, Desdemona is a powerful main character in the second season of Every Witch Way. Definitely a blonde baddie. Her name, shunned for centuries because of the tragic Shakespearean character, is now being considered by adventurous parents, having cracked the Nameberry Top 1000 this year.
