If you are a Halloween-loving parent or are expecting your child to arrive around the holiday season, what better way to make the magic of Oct. 31 last all year (and for the rest of your life, really) than to name your baby something spooktacular? But unlike the easy decisions of naming a raven Poe or naming a black cat Salem, figuring out a Halloween-related name for your baby may not be as straightforward — or, at least, the stakes might feel higher.

If you're finding yourself in dire need of inspiration for Halloween baby names, don't worry — we've got you covered with a long list of names for girls and boys (though so many of these are great gender-neutral options, too) that are inspired by the spooky season. Ranging from names in popular Halloween movies to those evoking elements of magic, these baby name suggestions are sure to delight.

Ready to venture outside the norm of baby names and into the haunted suggestions below? Check out this list of 60+ Halloween names for you to scroll through as you search for a favorite to bestow upon your newest addition to the family!
