Halloween baby

For parents who are horror fans, it’s hard to impart your love of the genre without taking on a pretty flexible stance on censorship–and quite possibly scaring the jeepers-creepers out of your innocent and impressionable progeny. As a consolation, you could always just name your child after a beloved spooky story (or *ahem* slasher flick); only those in the know will get the reference, and it can be your wicked little secret…that is, until your kiddo passes the suitable age threshold…

Of course, your bubs may simply be due some time in October, and what better way to celebration the occasion than with a nod to the spooky season? The more innocuous and Disneyfied theme of Halloween can also offer some ghoulishly good name ideas–minus the risk of conjuring chronic terror.

Either way, these choices are so supernaturally gorgeous (or just plain cute)–how can you not be spellbound by ’em?
