I hereby officially give up on trying to choose a "sensible" name for our DC1 due on halloween. We don't know if it's a boy or girl, and we just cannot seem to agree on a name.

So, assuming that s/he arrives on time, what Halloween themed names can you suggest?

I give you Morticia or Gomez as a starting point.

Could go with actors/actresses names? Angelica or Cristina for a girl for example. That's more sensible though.

My DD was due on Halloween last year, but was actually born 4th Nov, so nearly Bonfire Night. How about Guy?!

Er... Candy?

Ooh, I actually really like some of these!!

Eve is a great idea, as is Freddy (Frederick is actually a family name so would go down well with relatives as well). I could actually name a child either of those.

Slightly unexpectedly; this thread could be our saviour!! grin

Thanks all!!!
