October has always been associated with ghosts, goblins, witches, wizards, vampires and zombies as we prepare to celebrate Halloween.

 

And whether you look to a particular book, movie or even old legend there are plenty of places to inspire you in your baby name quest, if your little one is due around now.

 

However, if you have exhausted all the movies, books and scary shows that you can think of, why not look for something a little more Gothic-inspired?
