Of all the last-minute Halloween costumes you can throw together, going as a witch is hands-down the easiest. You can dress up as a beloved character from pop culture Witch movies and shows—like Hermione, Sabrina, or Glinda—or use a pointed hat and cauldron for an instantly recognizable look. But beyond playing dress-up on Halloween, witches throughout history have been downright cool. These figures are emblems of female independence, practitioners of early science, and misunderstood eccentrics. And witch names? Even cooler. So, to honor these witchy ladies, we gathered the best witch names into one ultimate list.

Some of these names can help you choose what type of witch you want to dress up as for your witch Halloween costumes. Others are funky, beautiful, or historical and perfect for naming a baby girl, cat, or dog. There are no bad decisions, *witch* ever you choose! Ahead, you'll find famous witch names that you're familiar with already, like Elphaba, Maleficent, or Hecate, the Greek goddess of witchcraft. You'll also see names inspired by witches from TV shows, books, and popular Halloween movies. And then of course there are names that just feel witchy like Lydia, Sage, and Raven.

If you choose to go as a witch this Halloween, you'll also want to come up with clever Halloween Instagram captions like witch quotes to accompany your costume such as, "Not every witch lives in Salem." There's no doubt you'll be in the spooky spirit after reading the best witch names out there!
