Happy Halloween week, friends!
And happy birthday to my wonderful mom, Nancy Kay. I love you and I hope you enjoy your holiday birthday!
Today's post is more fun than particularly insightful. I've taken some of the top Halloween costumes worn every year (pop culture costumes aside) and found names that match each of them. While I normally stick with Latin/Greek/Hebrew based names, I'm including names from other cultures to round things out.
Here's the list I'm using, but you can find other lists and continue the game!
