Monsters vs. Aliens... Baby Names that are Scary
Halloween is almost upon us, so what's better than spooky baby names. OK, it's just for fun. I have to say, there are certain names that send chills through my bones. Many times these names are common, but when you say the names around Halloween, they take on a whole new meaning. An example would be "Jason". This name used any other time of the year would be very normal, not much thought would come to your mind. But during the last couple weeks of October, "Jason" has a different kind of impact. Who doesn't remember the movies, Friday the 13th based on the fictional character "Jason Voorhees". A few other names include Freddy, Chucky and Norman. Again, I don't think I have to tell you who comes to mind.
What monster names can you think of? The one that comes to my mind is "Medusa". This name can be found under our Mythology Category. This name means THREE. Medusa was a monster that had snakes for hair, and if you looked into her eyes you would turn to stone. Another name for me is Sulley. For some reason I can't seem to get past kids animated movies. Sulley was a monster from the movie, Monsters Inc.
Alien names are more difficult for me. I could say "Jar Jar Binks", but this character ruined Star Wars for me. What a dumb character. The only name that really sticks out to me is Clark Kent or Superman. Technically he's an alien. Clark means Clergyman and if you think about it, that's really close to Clark's personality (Not Superman's).
What do you consider scarier, Monsters or Aliens? If you can think of another Monster or Alien name that's better than mine, I would like to know.
