Just wondering.
I know someone in his 30s born at the end of October his name is Blaine Riley Albert McIntyre,
Blaine like chilblains.
And his initials spell BRAM as in bram stoker.
Thoughts? Were his parents insane or clever?

For the OP, I guess they were clever in a subtle way, but unless people knew all his names it would have been lost on them. Some other names for this theme:

Dexter (from the series; analyst by day, serial killer by night)
Damien (Omen)
Freddy (from Elm Street nightmares)
Cullen (vampire, but also Irish and means 'handsome')
Jack (o'lantern)
Victor (Frankenstein)
Janet (Rocky Horror)
Marnie (Halloweentown)
Rosemary ('s baby)
Regan (Exorcist; possessed girl)
Glenda (good witch in Wizard of Oz)
Candy (Halloween sweeties)
Luna (Lovegood from Harry Potter)
Matilda
Sabrina (teenage witch)
Phoebe (witch from Charmed)

My DS was born on Halloween and one of his middle names is Krue....fits in nicely with last name to give it a Halloween theme. I love it but it isn’t obvious unless he uses his full name.

Clever. But this post is very ‘outing’ unless you’ve changed the names but still get the initials BRAM.
