Halloween baby names..

What are some names that sort of creep you out?

My mom always disliked the name Damien because of the movie "the omen".

  • Elvira, Damien, Blair, Carrie, Drusilla, Morticia, Samara, Wednesday

    They don't freak me out, but those are some names with some "spooky" stories behind them.

  • I've always thought Ophelia was a sort of haunted name. I actually kind of like it, but there is something a little bit spooky about it. I remember a poem I read many years ago about a girl named Ophelia who drowned herself, but even without that connection, I still think it's an eerie name.

  • Vicesix, Ophelia is Hamlet's sister (Shakespeare) and she drowned herself in the play. I do love that name though, and it was in our top 3 for a while.

  • SarahLeeMorgan, I remember about Shakespeare, but there was a poem (not by Shakespeare) about it that I read in middle school. I'm sure it was inspired by Hamlet, but it wasn't from Hamlet. Must go see if I can google around and find it now, lol.
    Anyone remember this by any chance?

  • Where the daisies laugh and blow,
    Where the willow leaves hang down,
    Nonny, nonny, I will go
    There to weave my lord a crown.

    Willow, willow, by the brook,
    Trailing fingers green and long,
    I will read my lord a book,
    I will sing my love a song.

    Though he turns his head away,
    Nonny, nonny, still I sing,
    Ditties of a heart gone gray,
    And a hand that bears no ring.

    Water, water, cold and deep,
    Hold me fast that I may sleep.
    Death with you is hardly more
    Than the little deaths before.
