Our Favorite Halloween Inspired Baby Names

Leaves are changing, temperatures are dropping, and pumpkins are being plucked from their patches. Halloween is soon, and all around the world, people are getting ready for the holiday by finding costumes, smoothing on face paint, and keeping bowls of candy ready beside the door.

Some families are even preparing to welcome a very special Halloween treat: a new baby! If you have a Halloween child on the way, consider naming your new arrival one of these spooky seasonal baby names:

Boys names for Halloween

  1. Bob(bing for apples)
  2. Frank(enstein)
  3. Hal(loween)
  4. Jack (o’ Lantern)
  5. (Fright) Night

Girls names for Halloween

  1. Candy
  2. (Black) Cat
  3. (All Hallows’) Eve
  4. October (31)
  5. Trixie (or treat…ie!)

Of course, the parenthetical puns are optional. You could always steer in a more subtle direction by picking something like Salem or Luna–or, if you’re lucky enough to have a bewitching last name, go for over-the-top fun! M. T. Tomb, perhaps? I. M. Wormfood?

What are your favorite Halloween-inspired names?

The Name Diviner

OK I must admit...I am a name nerd. I love learning about names, their beginnings, origins, meanings, history, their resurgences from history and their crazy births via celebrities....everyone has some weird passion right?.....right? Hopefully though I can help inspire you to conquer your quest for the perfect baby name.
