There are several reasons and events that inspire people from different parts of the world, to give their little one a unique name. Events like; war, chaos, anger, greed, or misfortune in life, and the death of someone, can land a child with a name people might be startled with only until they’re able to find the amazing meaning behind the name.
Naming a baby is a crucial moment in parenting that requires carefulness so as to ensure that the name given to a child is a name that’s outstanding and the child can live by it forever.
In the light of the above, many parents while considering a name for their newly born baby, sort to search for baby names and meanings. Most importantly, many would want to know what girl name means death or what male name means death. This could be to figure out the best fit for their newly born, to separate them from the popular John and Ann, or to avoid it entirely as several other cultures of the world, detest death-related names.
Trying to figure out names that mean death or darkness can be challenging, and giving your little one such a name does not signify you hate or wish them bad luck and destruction. Honestly, evil baby names, names meaning death or dark names, all have their unique meanings.
In some traditions, newly born babies are named following the event that took place immediately before they were born, while they were been given birth to or after the death of someone. The name does not in any way mean that the child will turn out to be evil or experience darkness in life, it is a name that can make a child stand out in the crowd and serve as a sparkling light in the darkness.
