Got goth baby names? We do!
Girl Goth baby names
There are several famous goth girls to get baby name inspiration from. One of our favorite goth girls is Wednesday Addams, from The Addams Family. Wednesday is obviously a great goth name; however, if you feel like that has already been done, then the other days of the week make equally cool names. Saturday might be a bit too perky for a goth name, but Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or (my favorite) Friday would all make great names.
Wednesday’s mom, Morticia, has an equally cool name that has just the right amount of edgy weirdness to it. The name is Latin in origin and means "funeral director." You can’t get much more goth than that.
We also loved the gothic coolness of Lydia from the movie Beetlejuice, played by actress Wynona Ryder. The name has both Swedish and Greek origins.
Another favorite goth girl name is Raven, who is currently a popular goth girl on the cartoon Teen Titans.

Boy Goth baby names
Robert Smith, the lead singer of The Cure, is one of the most famous goth guys. Even though the name Robert doesn’t really have a goth sound to it, his last name of Smith would make a great first name. Smith is a name of English origin that means "tradesman."
Marilyn Manson is another well-known goth — although some die-hard goths would argue that the singer is not goth, but more metal or emo. Either way, Marilyn Manson is the perfect goth name. If the thought of naming your son Marilyn doesn’t sit well, perhaps the last name of Manson would make the perfect goth boy name.
Christian Death founder Rozz Williams was called the "Goth Pioneer" by Rolling Stone magazine. His first name, Rozz, is edgy and unique and would make a great goth name.

Androgynous Goth baby names
These androgynous or unisex names would be perfect for your little boy or girl goth. Since black is the go-to color for all goths, these names based on the different shades of black make the perfect goth monikers for boys or girls.
