Whether you're looking for unique baby names or a fitting name for your new black cat, witchy names are an awesome new trend. 

Witches are cool! That’s witches, not warlocks (the male version of a witch). There’s a reason that a witch is the most common costume people don on the spookiest night of the year. 

Not only that, but witchcraft is having a revival in popularity.

Witchcraft has evolved from its medieval healer days into complete global brands, as modern “witches” and social media popularize various spiritual practices like the use of crystals. It can even be considered mainstream now.

Can you believe that we had the Salem witch trials where we burned countless witches at the stake and now we have teenagers declaring themselves witches on TikTok and being praised for it?! It’s crazy how societal norms can change and grow!

Books, movies, and TV shows like Harry Potter, Marvel, and Bewitched have made witchcraft and wizardry fascinating.

So why not name your little girl after a powerful creature of magic and wisdom?

Here are 77 of the best witchy names out there for your enchanting little girl!
