150 Vampire Names both Ancient and Modern

Here is a list of 150 vampire names with their meanings and origins (when known). The list is divided by male names for vampires and female names for vampires.  Many of these names may sound unfamiliar or unusual as some are taken from older times and are not popular names for boys or girls today.

How to use this list of vampire names

The list of names below can be used to help identify someone as a possible vampire simply by hearing their name.  Often the name will have a reference to being immortal, evil, or dark.  A typical vampire name might also reference the night, long-life, or even death.  In older times, people paid more attention to the meaning of names when naming their baby boy or girl. They looked at the traits that the baby exhibited, that they might want the baby to exhibit, or who they might want that baby boy or girl to become.  Often therefore, ancient vampires specifically, will have names reflective of their darker traits. Therefore the name can signify not only that someone is a vampire, but also if they are an ancient one or a younger one.
vampire names and meanings
That is not to say that all vampires have vampire names – indeed, they often do not. Especially in cases of more modern vampires, where they have been “turned” sometime in this century, the name of the vampire may be totally unrelated to the fact that they are a vampire.

This list is still however useful, as often, many “modern” vampires seek to change their names.  “Vampire names” are often adopted by vampires after they’ve been turned for a period of time.  A name is reflective of who you are and will be – and many humans-turned-vampires, no longer feel like they are who their born family name identifies them as.

    • Emily says:

      Where is this magic?

    • LegendLupe046 (Alpha of the Lunar Apocalypse Pack) says:

      @Emily This “magic” only will give you a mental disorder it won’t actually give you what you think it does. Sorry..

    • Raven Angel says:

      are u serious

    • JoeLupe says:

      @Raven Angel yes, actually I have made tremendous research on this topic, and I must say it is indeed impossible to become a werewolf from a werewolf spell. Indeed it is impossible to essentially “become” a werewolf anyways. Lol! ^.^

    • JoeLupe says:

      Oh and added to such knowledge, understanding, and wisdom it is possible to BE a werewolf. ^.^ however, there are a lot of things that come into play here.

      I understand that one might want to become something else, aside from human. Power.. protection.. revenge.. acceptance.. self esteem.. confidence.. even stereotypes.. there are many reasons why one would want to be a werewolf, and I’ve been through the whole circle. Trust me, I know the urge.. but to accept yourself as you are… it frees your soul. You think I haven’t gone the WHOLE circle? I gave up everything.. my time.. my life… my body.. my sanity.. my soul.. just to be this.. creature. But I have learned that, by doing so, you dig yourself deeper into a hole that kills you.. on the inside it tears you up. To accept yourself as who you are, is freeing because you see that hole which you dug yourself in and think “how could I do this?” But no worries, your never alone. ^.^ trust me, over time you’ll know what I’m talking about. Sometimes.. you only see it when it’s too late.. which is why so many decide to just end it all.. but honestly, these spells do not work anyways.. they do teach us one thing though.. spells may not work in the way we think, but they teach us, to accept life as it comes, to just accept that, yes there is death.. you can’t control it. You may have bad luck, but it’s on you, not chance. Some things, were just meant to happen.. and if you can see the truth, even through a spell, then you will realize that what I’m saying is the truth. 🙂

    • Kaylee flowers says:

      How?? I want to be one of them my whole life

    • KitchiLupe says:

      @Kaylee Flowers don’t.. don’t be Something your not. Accept and love yourself as you are, because you are a special spark of Fire that’s unique to its own dance. You are capable of many things as you are. You don’t want to be this.. creature. If you knew the truth, you would see that indeed pretending to be something you are not.. kills the soul. But loving and accepting yourself as God (or insert diety or science that created you here) created you… you will find peace at heart.
