17 Halloween-Inspired Baby Names For Your October Boy

Are you mad about Halloween? If you are an All Hallow’s Eve fanatic and expecting a baby, picking a baby name can be extremely thrilling.

There are tons of Halloween baby names to choose from, each with their own chilling story or meaning. So if you are on the prowl for a spooktacular name, look no further. Have a scroll through our fang-tastic list of Halloween inspired monikers, particularly for boys.

  1. Casper - Our favourite friendly ghost and a popular Scandinavian name. It means “wealthy man”.
  2. Damien - A super spooky name, and the son of the devil - well, that’s if you believe in that sort of stuff. It translates to “powerful man of people”.
  3. Phoenix - In Greek mythology, the phoenix was a beautiful bird that built its own pyre and was then reborn from the ashes. 
  4. Godric - An unusual name which means “ruler of God” and the name of the founder of Hogwarts house Gryffindor in the Harry Potter franchise. 
  5. Edward - Taken from our favourite vampire series, Twilight. Edward means “guardian of prosperity”.
  6. Thanos - The name itself means “noble”, but it is believed to have derived from Thanatos, the Greek God of Death. And evil-doer in The Avengers movies.
  7. Vladimir - Another potential Halloween baby name, which is often associated with vampires. 
  8. Bram - After the Irish writer, Abraham “Bram” Stoker, the legend famous for the novel Dracula. Abraham means “Father of Nations”. 
  9. Orion - The son of Poseidon and it means “son of fire”.
  10. Xander - A strong name meaning “defender of man”. Xander is also one of the characters from our childhood favourite Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 
  11. Jack - For obvious reasons, it reminds us of a Jack-o-lantern. Jack simply means “man”.
  12. Freddy - A short form of Alfred meaning “elf counsel”. We have taken it from the classic Halloween movie, A Nightmare on Elm Street. 
  13. Keiran - A popular Irish name meaning “dark one”.
  14. Sullivan - Usually found as a surname, Sullivan translates to “black-eyed and “dark eyes”.
  15. Neko - A Japanese name which means “cat”. 
  16. Black - This name sounds super creepy and mystical without being too in your face. 
  17. Draco - Also taken from Harry Potter. Draco was Harry’s arch-enemy. The name is of Greek origin and means “dragon”.
