    Exclamation Names with Dark or Creepy Meanings

    I have a really cool idea for a fantasy tpe story that will be set modern day and in the us somewhere. It will have different creatures in it (i.e. mermaids, ghosts, vampires, etc...) and I was hoping to get some names that have dark or creepy meanings.
    Also, if you have any names from around the 1600 - 1900's type eras, I would love to hear them (for the ghosts). My vision for these names was something long and unusual (i.e. Victoria) but that it would have a dark meaning (i.e. unhappy, or unlucky)
    I would love to here your ideas and suggestions! Thank you in advance
    Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

    Eh, but Vega means the swooping eagle, not falling star.

    Mallory is a unisex name meaning misfortunate. I forget where it comes from, probably England or somewhere though. It would be quite ironic for someone who is quite lucky.
