50+ Witch Names Perfect For Your Halloween Baby – Scary Mommy

50+ Witch Names Perfect For Your Enchanting New Baby

Naming your baby is a personal journey. Often times we want our kids’ names to represent our heritage, interests, or goals. If you’re into all things magical and mystical, that might include witch names. Maybe you’re getting ready to birth a magical baby, or, perhaps, you just like Halloween and want to amp up the mystery behind your baby, due in late October or early November? Whatever your reason (even if it’s no reason at all), you’re here because you’re looking for a witchy name and we have a ton of them.

First, a note about witches. While most people hear the term “witch” and think of Salem, it’s important to remember that nearly all cultures have legends involving some form of “witch” or “sorcerer.” Not all witches are bad, either. Many women who were good with nature or had a head for natural remedies were considered witches (or “witch doctors“) in their community. No caldrons. No black cats. Not even a trip to Ollivander’s. (We see you, Potterheads.) Just simple home remedies or green thumbs would often warrant the “witch” slur. These days, witches real and fictional are more welcomed in our society. They’re seem more as mystical than menacing, intriguing not eery. If you’re looking to conjure a little magic for your sweet babe (or maybe just a cat or a plant), any of these witchy baby names will suffice. They’re all steeped in myth, lore, and the paranormal but nothing you’ll instantly regret.
