halloween babiesAs we officially enter Scorpio season with Halloween preparedness in full swing, I'm in the mood for all things mythical and magical. Halloween isn't just about the frightful and spooky and having a baby this time of year is the best. (Confession: I'm a Scorpio.)

In honor of the season, and for any parents-to-be considering baby names with a mystical meaning or a bewitching feel, look no further than this Halloween-inspired list.

Knitt... KnittinMama

One of my daughter's names is Hazel. Some of those are a bit off to name a kid lol

My daughter is named Evangeline but I don't see what is had to do with Halloween. She is named for the Longfellow poem and the name means good news. Weird.

melim... melime2012

My daughter is Evangeline, after the Longfellow poem about the Acadians. Not sure what that has to do with Halloween...

Finally a list if names from The Stir that I can respect! Great job Michele (are you a secret name nerd?) ;)

My favorites:

Maeve, Hermione, Rowena, Agatha and Belladonna for the girls.

Balthazar, Bram, Jasper, Edgar and Rohan for boys.

Just a note, I think Hester is a feminine name, unless there is more than one versions.

MomLi... MomLily67
