Soon-to-be parents desperately searching for the perfect baby name should consider every aspect of their lives, including favorite holidays or time of the year, as inspiration for choosing the best baby name for a girl or a boy.
If you're a fan of spooky season, also known as Halloween, why not aid your baby name search by perusing Halloween baby names. Whether you love all things scary or you're in search of a fall baby name, a future mummy (get it?!) or dad might just find the perfect moniker for their little one when they consider baby names tied to Halloween.
"Spooky names are more popular year-round than ever before, and parents are more willing to push the limits of sinister style," Laura Wattenberg, author of “The Baby Name Wizard,” tells TODAY.com. "A name like Lucifer or Morticia certainly makes an impact."
Even parents who aren't a fan of the scary, spooky or strange can still find comfort in Halloween baby name ideas, as they often coincide with seasonally influenced names. If you're looking for a fall-inspired name for a girl, you could consider a name like Autumn or Sienna. If you're expecting a boy, a moniker like Hunter or Leaf may be your style.
Whether you can't wait to decorate your home for Halloween or you're just looking forward to the day the leaves start to change colors, one thing is for sure — the month of October is filled with enough frightful fun and seasonal joy to serve as inspiration when choosing the perfect name for your soon-to-be son or daughter.
