Factors To Consider When Choosing Magical & Mystical Names

Following naming trends can be cool, such as choosing names from the year’s most popular movies or TV series. 

For example, “Lucifer” might seem like a badass boy name after Lucifer Morningstar, the protagonist in the urban fantasy TV show “Lucifer” that ran for six seasons. However, even if show fans might adore the main character, the name is still associated with the devil (Lucifer in the show also depicts the devil but owns a nightclub after getting “bored” of his life in hell).



Naming trends can be fun, but you might also consider unique names for your child to stand out from a playground full of “Elsas” and “Annas.”


Backstories, Meanings, & Connotations

It’s good to research the name’s meaning because some might look cool and powerful but can have a morbid or bad meaning, connotation, or backstory (such as names that mean death).


Check Final Spelling & Initials

Before finalizing your baby’s names, check for the final spelling you want to use (many names have different spelling variations in various languages).

It’s also important to check the resulting initials to avoid potentially embarrassing ones like “ASS” or “FAT.”
