Halloween-Inspired Baby Names
Fall has arrived! 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:
Bob(bing for apples)
JackÂ (oâ€™ Lantern)
(All Hallowsâ€™)Â Eve
TrixieÂ (or treatâ€¦ie!)
Of course, the parenthetical puns are optional. You could always steer in a more subtle direction by picking something likeÂ SalemÂ orÂ Lunaâ€“or, if youâ€™re lucky enough to have a bewitching last name, go for over-the-top fun! M. T. Tomb, perhaps? I. M. Wormfood?
