What is the definition of a ghost?

A ghost is defined as a spirit or soul of a person who has died, which is said to haunt the living. There are many stories and accounts of ghosts throughout history and across cultures. Some believe that ghosts are trapped between this world and the next, while others believe that they are simply figments of our imagination. Whether you believe in them or not, ghosts have always been a source of fascination for humanity.

How do famous ghosts get their names?

When it comes to naming ghosts, there are a few methods that seem to be popular among the ethereal set. Many famous ghosts get their names from the manner of their death, while others are named after objects or places with which they're associated. Still others are given more mundane appellations based on their appearance or behavior.

One of the most common ways for a ghost to get its name is from the circumstances surrounding its death. For example, the White Lady of Worstead Church is so named because she was reportedly killed in a wedding dress. The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall got her name from the brown Cloak she's said to wear. And then there's Anne Boleyn, one of England's most infamous queens, who was decapitated and is said to haunt Hampton Court Palace with her head under her arm.

5 questions to help you come up with ghost names

  • What adjectives would best describe the spirit?
  • What symbolic meanings are associated with the spirit?
  • Are there any historical or religious figures associated with the spirit?
  • What sound would best represent the spirit?

The Best Ghosts, Ranked

Here are the best ghouls, spirits, and poltergeists from pop culture history.

Headshot of Adrienne Westenfeld

Human beings have told ghost stories since time immemorial. Ghosts are braided into our folklore, after all—think the Headless Horseman or Bloody Mary—and we’ll hazard a guess that even primitive humans were painting ghosts on their cave walls. We love ghosts because they suggest a world without dying, because they can lend a measure of justice to unjust deaths, because they provide a means of communicating with our loved ones from beyond the grave.

However, not all ghosts take themselves and their mission so seriously. Some are mischievous; some are looking for love (and even sex) from the living; others are just plain flatulent. Not all ghosts are crusaders in search of justice or spiritual connection, after all—some are tricksters, some are malingerers, and some are just out to cause as much commotion as they possibly can. Can you really blame them? If you were a ghost, wouldn’t you, too, want to levitate a lamp and make some hapless witness crap his pants?

Here at Esquire , we love all things spooky, so with Halloween fast approaching at the end of the month, we ranked our favorite ghosts from worst to best. It was a challenge riddled with tough decisions, as we have great affection for all these kooky ghosts, yet we had to admit that some of them lost points by refusing to maximize their use of their ghostly powers. Why linger on earth in perpetuity if you’re not going to have a grand old time of it? Buckle up--this ride is haunted.

28) Guys On Tinder

Facial hair, Beard, Technology, Sitting, Photography,

Enough said.

27) Shoeless Joe Jackson, from Field of Dreams

Forehead, Headgear, Uniform,

If I had my choice of baseball ghosts to throw BP to, Field of Dreams ’s Shoeless Joe Jackson would probably be low on that list. He only likes the ball in one spot, and lives in mystical corn fields, so he’s never really free for a beer after. When you really think about it, Shoeless Joe is kind of a dick to Kevin Costner’s Ray Kinsella. What do you mean I’m not invited? That’s my goddamn corn. - Brady Langmann

26) Dr. Malcolm Crowe, from The Sixth Sense

White-collar worker, Photography, Businessperson,

That’s right, we spoiled it. What are you gonna do about it? A complete lack of awareness of his ghostly powers makes Bruce Willis a pretty lame ghost, in all honesty. After all, there’s got to be a more exciting way to spend the afterlife than administering therapy to troubled children. -Adrienne Westenfeld

25) The Hatbox Ghost, from Disney's The Haunted Mansion

Not many ghosts can claim to have been cancelled, but the Hatbox Ghost can. Upon his installation in the Haunted Mansion in 1969, he was deemed insufficiently scary within a few months of operation, and as a result, he was decommissioned until 2015. Womp womp. After 46 years of retirement, the Hatbox Ghost may have preferred to stay retired, but hey, who doesn’t love a good comeback? -AW

24) Jacob Marley, from NBC's A Christmas Carol

George Costanza is Jacob Marley, and yes, this is Seinfeld canon. In what now would become a series of plagues on this world, NBC stars of new and old teamed up to ruin a bit of the holiday season in every home. With a score by Alan Menken and an all-star cast featuring Kelsey Grammer as Scrooge, there’s some charm to this cheesy straight to TV musical feature. It's not even that Jason Alexander did a bad job, but seeing George Costanza and Frasier Crane talk about the mistakes of their pasts feels more like NBC Sitcom Purgatory than a holiday classic. -Cameron Sherrill

23) The Snapchat Ghost

Clip art,

He’s small, he’s spooky, and he’s got all your nudes. The Snapchat Ghost approaches your most sensitive photos with a frankly inappropriate level of mischief—just look at those pinwheeling arms and that floppy tongue. Fun, cringey fact: his real name is Ghostface Chillah. -AW

22) Ghost Rider, from Marvel's Ghost Rider

He’s spooky. He’s on fire. He’s a biker. And his head is a skull. Ghost Rider may not be Marvel’s most famous hero, but he is hands-down the best Ghoulish Good Guy that the MCU has to offer. -Dominick Nero

21) The Pac-Man Ghosts

Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are Pac-Man’s chief tormentors. A few little-known facts about them: Blinky is bad at grammar, Inky lacks focus, Pinky has a crush on Pac-Man, and Clyde is a hapless do-gooder. Basically, they’re a pack of playground bullies in spectral form. -AW

20) The Dead Men of Dunharrow, from The Lord of the Rings

One ghost is great—a horde of ghosts is even better. In The Lord of the Rings , the Dead Men of Dunharrow are a swarm of spirits cursed to linger under a mountain as punishment for breaking their promise of military aid to Isildur, Aragorn’s ancestor. Only when they fight for Aragorn in the war against Sauron are they released to their eternal rest. A ghost putting in an honest day’s work for an honest reward: you love to see it. -AW

19) Slimer, from Ghostbusters

Slimer isn’t just a garden variety ghost—he’s the rare gross ghost. A “grohst,” if you will. You’d think bodily functions would lose their importance in the afterlife, but Slimer is smelly, flatulent, and forever looking for his next meal. Whomst among us can’t relate? -AW

18) The Ghost of Christmas Present, from The Muppets Christmas Carol

The Muppets Christmas Carol has ghosts ranging from hilarious and charming to downright nightmarish, from the antics of Statler and Waldorf as Jakob Marley (or Marley and Marley in this case) to the nightmarish Humanoid doll muppet mutant that is the Ghost of Christmas Past. Out of all of the muppet mayhem, there’s one happy haunt that stands apart: the Ghost of Christmas Present. This jovial, forgetful, giant piece of felt is one of the most charming things about the Christmas Classic. Cheers to you, Ghost of Christmas Present, for saving us all from the other Eldritch abominations that haunt this wonderful film. -CS

17) The Ghost of Abraham Lincoln

Lincoln's Murder

The ghost of Honest Abe gets around. Lincoln is said to have haunted the White House since his death in 1865, with sightings reported by presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson, among others. In one memorable anecdote, Prime Minister Winston Churchill reported encountering the ghost of Lincoln after emerging from the bathtub, which left him facing down the deceased head of state buck naked. Is Ghost Lincoln a peeping Tom? Who’s to say? For further reading, refer to George Saunders’ Lincoln in the Bardo. -AW

16) Danny Phantom, from NIckelodeon's Danny Phantom

More ghosts should have catchphrases. Sure, “I’m going ghost” isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but can you blame Danny Phantom? He’s a half-human, half-ghost 14-year-old juggling puberty, a secret identity, and a single-handed responsibility to keep his small town safe from a menacing horde of ghosts. Plenty of ghosts are do-gooders, but Danny Phantom is a bona fide hero. -AW

15) King Hamlet, from Hamlet

While other ghosts swan through the afterlife on a series of rascally larks, King Hamlet is a ghost on a mission. Trapped in purgatory, as he died without receiving his last rites, King Hamlet urges his good-for-nothing son to avenge his murder at the hands of his brother. It’s worth noting that King Hamlet appears in his full kingly regalia—no cruddy bedsheets for this guy. This is a ghost with class. -AW

14) The Blow Job Ghost and His Lover, from The Shining

The Shining is remembered mostly for its disturbing sequences and unbridled terror, but people seem to forget how downright hilarious this 1980 movie is. Stanley Kubrick never failed to deliver on his trademark mischievous sense of humor, and The Shining is no exception. When the hotel finally becomes a full-on Haunted House in the big finale, Wendy spots a spirit in a bear costume performing oral sex on a man in a tuxedo. Good for them! -DN

13) Moaning Myrtle, from Harry Potter

Do you like your ghosts the vengeful, old-fashioned way? Had enough of these gentle, benevolent, “go toward the light” types? Then Moaning Myrtle is the ghost for you, bitter and malevolent as she is. In the Harry Potter universe, Myrtle torments female students in the second floor ladies’ restroom at Hogwarts, though she occasionally slips into the men’s restroom to spy on naked boys in the bath. -AW

12) Banquo, from Macbeth

Showing up uninvited is basically a ghost’s calling card, but Banquo dials it up to 20—he shows up uninvited, and he takes the host’s chair, and he talks shit about the host to his very face. Basically, Banquo is a messy bitch who lives for drama, and we’re here for that. -AW

11) The Holy Ghost in Fleabag

Sitting, Architecture, Photography,

God, or some manifestation of his/her spirit, is floating around and unafraid to make its presence known in the second season of Fleabag . Making out with a priest? It’s happy to knock a framed image or two off the wall to keep you in line. At least one-third of the Holy Trinity isn’t here to mess around. -Justin Kirkland

10) Denny Duquette, from Grey's Anatomy

The ghost of Denny Duquette was a breaking point for a lot of Grey’s Anatomy fans. Sometimes he appeared as a vision when someone died. Then he appeared as a warm presence in the hospital. Then he had a whole season where he slept with Katherine Heigl’s character. In short, Denny Duquette would not go away, but if you’re going to be haunted by an apparition (or manifestation of your tumor—dealer’s choice), you’d be lucky to find one as charming as Jeffery Dean Morgan. -JK

9) Anakin Skywalker, from Return of the Jedi

For years, the ghoulish visage of English thespian Sebastian Shaw stood as the one and only human representation of Darth Vader. He appeared to Luke Skywalker at the end of Return of the Jedi dressed in a Jedi robe, with a spooky light blue aura surrounding him and fellow Jedi ghosts, Yoda and Old Ben Kenobi. Then, as he is wont to do, George Lucas went and fucked it up. The updated versions of Return of the Jedi now have Hayden Christensen standing in amongst the Original Trilogy Force Ghosts–but Sebastian Shaw will always be the definitive Papa Skywalker. -DN

Osp investigates ghost names on government payroll system; threatens to prosecute culprits.

m ghost names

The government's efforts to eradicate ghost names from the payroll system may see progress with the intervention of the Office of the Special Prosecutor.

According to the OSP's half-year report unveiled on December 29, 2023, the focus of their assessment and investigation is to eliminate fictitious names and recoup erroneous payments.

The OSP warned that individuals found to be involved in any wrongdoing will face prosecution.

“The Office has commenced corruption risk assessment and investigation into suspected corruption and corruption-related offences in respect of the Government of Ghana payroll administration.

“The assessment and investigation are especially aimed at isolating and removing non-existent names, recovering wrongful payments, and the prosecution of persons suspected to be culpable for any offence(s).”

The Office of the Special Prosecutor also affirmed it is in collaboration with the Controller and Accountant General’s Department to carry out the investigation.

It emphasised that the scope of the investigation and assessment extends to all banks and employees enlisted on the government payroll.

“A joint project team of selected staff of the two institutions has been formed for the purpose,” OSP stated in its report.

“The exercise is being carried out in two phases. Phase I covers the Ghana Education Service and the health institutions. Phase II covers all other Metropolitan/Municipal/District Assemblies, Ministries, Departments, and Agencies.”

The Office mentioned that it is concurrently probing 152 other cases at different stages of examination.

“These would be publicised if the Special Prosecutor determines that they are within the mandate of the Office and that they should be moved past the preliminary investigation stage."

"This is a policy intended to protect the privacy of individuals and the business operations of institutions and companies, and to avoid unnecessary stigmatisation."

Ghost Names for Babies

Sophie Kihm

Whether or not you actually believe in ghosts, it’s hard to deny that a ghost name would be ideal for a baby born around Halloween. And I’m not talking about Casper , Jacob , or Helena , all ghosts from popular culture. Today we’re looking at ghost names for babies of the supposedly real ghosts that walk among us, haunting our cities and towns after their tortured pasts.

Of course, many of their stories are tragic enough that the superstitious among us might think twice before naming a child after one of these ghosts. But for true fans of the supernatural, a baby name with a ghostly backstory could feel just right.

Here, ten “real” ghost names for your Halloween baby.

Ghost Names For Girls and Boys

Agnes Sampson was accused of witchcraft in 16th century Scotland, for which she was later executed. Her ghost, known as Bloody Agnes , is said to haunt Holyrood Palace—Queen Elizabeth ’s official Scottish residence. Agnes is a quirky name that has recently been embraced by trendsetting parents but has not yet made it back into the US Top 1000. The adorable girl in Despicable Me may help propel Agnes back into fashion.

Catalina Lercaro is a famous Spanish ghost, claimed to spook the Canary Islands. Unhappy with her forced engagement to an older man, Catalina killed herself on her wedding day by jumping into a pit outside her family home. The name Catalina is the Spanish variation of Catherine and has taken a large leap in popularity over the past decade. This may have something to do with Catalina ’s recognizability as a place name—currently a hot category in names. Santa Catalina is an island off of California , and Isla Catalina is off the coast of the Dominican Republic.

Dorothy Townshend is the famed Brown Lady of Raynham Hall , who was supposedly captured on film in 1936. Lady Dorothy died in Raynham Hall from smallpox in 1726, but the first reported sighting of her ghost was not until 1835. The ghostly photograph was published in Country Life in 1937, although many regard it as a hoax today. Dorothy feels fresh again for girls after decades of association with The Wizard of Oz . Dorothea , the name from which Dorothy is derived, is also getting more attention. Dot and Dottie make sweet nicknames for either.

Queen Esther was an Iroquois leader who live in Pennsylvania in the 18th century. After the death of her son at the hands of colonial townsmen, she ordered an attack that led to the loss of her entire village. Rumor has it that the Ghost of Queen Esther prevents hunters’ guns from firing in the Pennsylvania woods to protect her village. The name Esther is an Old Testament classic and has never left the Top 400. It’s on the ascent right now, currently ranked at #153 in the US.

Kate is associated with two notable ghosts, Kate Morgan and the Bell Witch. Kate Morgan is said to haunt the Hotel del Coronado in California , where she was found dead—although by murder or suicide it is unclear—in 1892. The Bell Witch, said to be named Kate , was a spirit who haunted the Bell family in 19th century Tennessee . It is widely considered folklore, but the legend of the Bell Witch was the basis for multiple stories in pop culture, including The Blair Witch Project . Kate originated as a nickname for Katherine but is substantial enough to stand on its own. It conjures up royal images thanks to Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Perhaps the most pervasive ghost of folklore is Bloody Mary , who is said to appear in one’s mirror if her name is chanted in a dimly-lit room. Bloody Mary is not reliably linked to a specific person from history, although it is suggested that she might be Mary I of England , who was nicknamed Bloody Mary , or Mary Worth , who was killed in the Salem Witch Trials. Mary is also the most pervasive name on this list, as it was the top girls’ name in the US for over seventy years.

Minnie Quay was a teenager in Forester, Michigan, who drowned herself after learning of her lover’s death from a sunken ship. Her ghost is thought to wander along the shores of Lake Huron. Minnie is still heavily associated with Minnie Mouse, but otherwise fits in with the trend of vintage nickname revivals, along with Millie , Josie , and Sadie . Quay , our ghost’s surname, also works as a baby name. It rhymes with “key” and is French for “wharf.”

Nan Tuck disappeared in the woods of Buxted, England, after poisoning a man in the 17th century. The village has a road named after her, Nan Tuck ’s Lane , which is apparently haunted by her ghost. Historically Nan was a nickname for Ann or Nancy , but it can also be used as a short form of the more popular Annabel , as in Edith Wharton’s “The Buccaneers.”

Sweet William ’s Ghost is an English folk song that tells the story of a ghost, William , appealing to his fiancé to be free of his commitment to marry her. Little is known about the origins of the ballad, but it is speculated that the story may have been inspired by a 17th century British play. William is a classic name—a common name among historic kings—and the third most popular name for boys in the US.

Zona Shue—born Elva Zona Heaster—is the Greenbrier Ghost of West Virginia . She was murdered by her husband in 1897 and her mother claimed Zona ’s ghost visited her in the weeks following her death. Zona ’s interesting name is Latin in origin and also the name of a constellation of Orion . It peaked on the US popularity charts in 1887 at #412. A notable wearer is Zona Gale , a novelist and playwright who won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1921.

So which of these real-life ghost names for babies would you consider?

Evil, scary, and creepy baby names

Babies are all sweetness and light, of course. But their names don't always have to be. We drew inspiration for these dark baby names from horror films, classic novels, the Bible, Greek mythology, and even Disney.

Rebekah Wahlberg

Scary boy names

Scary girl names, scary unisex names.

If you like one-of-a-kind baby names, have an affinity for the "supernatural," or you're looking for something with an edge, a little bit of goth, or straight up macabre – pick your poison. The world is your haunted house. Move over, Bobby and Susie . These baby names are not for future teacher's pets.

Bram is a nickname for the Hebrew name Abraham , which means "father of many." Bram Stoker, author of the gothic novel Dracula , introduced the world to the infamous vampire, a reanimated, blood-sucking man who lives in a dark castle surrounded by wolves. Stoker's Dracula epitomizes evil, and the name Bram carries on his legacy.

Cain is a character from the Bible – the firstborn son of Adam . He is said to have killed his brother Abel in a twisted tale of sibling rivalry, thus becoming the first human to commit murder. Subsequently, Cain was cursed to become a restless wanderer of the earth for eternity. Fun fact: The expression "my brother's keeper" comes from the story of Cain and Abel.

Damien comes from a Greek word meaning "to tame." It also has an irreparable association with the horror film The Omen , whose main character, a boy named Damien Thorn, is the son of Satan. This name was also borne by several Christian martyrs.

Draco sounds a bit like Dracula, for good reason. It's supposedly derived from the Latin word for "dragon," but "drac" also means "devil" in Romanian. This name is brought to you by the Harry Potter fantasy novel series, which features Draco Malfoy, a school rival of Harry .

Freddy , short for Frederick , is the name of the villain in the horror flick Nightmare on Elm Street . The name means "peace ruler," which doesn't exactly describe Freddy Krueger, whose capacity for violence and wickedness has left all who have dared to watch the films terrified for life. This classic nickname has seen use as a unisex name before, but it's commonly used as a boy's name.

Silas is a possible variant of the Roman name Sylvan , meaning "wood" or "forest," or, some theorize, of the Hebrew name Saul . What we know for sure is that Silas is the name of the unforgettable hit man in Dan Brown's novel DaVinci Code , who is often depicted devoutly whipping himself with a wire chain-like implement, while practicing mortification of the flesh in the name of his faith. Silas is also a villain in the teen supernatural drama series The Vampire Diaries .

Bellatrix is a Latin word that means "female warrior." It earns a spot on this list thanks to Bellatrix Lestrange, a villain in the Harry Potter series who tortures and murders in the name of Voldemort, Harry's nemesis. If you're looking for a spooky name that's undercover, Bella is a natural nickname for this dark moniker.

Carmilla is the name of the title character in the gothic novella Carmilla , written by Sheridan Le Fanu in 1872. Carmilla is an aristocratic vampire who preys on and seduces several women in the book. Said to be the original vampire story that preceded Bram Stoker's Dracula by 26 years, the story of Carmilla is credited with inspiring all other vampire stories that followed.

Carrie is the titular character of Stephen King's first horror novel. The story, which was made into a film in 1976 and then remade in 2013, is a tale of high school woe and cruelty, and, in the end, extreme violence. Carrie is an awkward, bullied high school student who ultimately is pushed too far in such a graphically bloody way it's impossible to unsee. Likely short for Caroline or Carol , Carrie means "free."

Desdemona translates from Greek as "ill-fated one." If that is not enough explanation for appearing on this list of evil baby names, then consider the fact that Desdemona is the name of the wife who is unjustly murdered by her jealous husband in Shakespeare's tragic play Othello . Conspiracy, deceit, murder – the baggage this name carries is dark and burdensome.

Lilith translates from Latin as "of the night" or "night monster." In Jewish folklore, Lilith was Adam's first wife, who was banished from the Garden of Eden for disobedience. Other versions tell of Lilith growing wings and flying away by choice. In mythical Assyrian legend, Lilith is the name of a demon with sinister powers. It's no surprise that many groups of women have embraced Lilith as a symbol of independence and empowerment.

Maleficent has surprisingly risen more than 5,000 spots on BabyCenter's list of most popular names since 2021, with possible thanks to the Disney film Maleficent and Angelina Jolie's depiction of the evil fairy from Sleeping Beauty . Maleficent derives from Latin and means "harm" or "evil." Like many an archetypal villain, Maleficent has a troubled backstory, which explains her wickedness and makes her ever so slightly more sympathetic.

Ophelia is a beautiful name with tragic connotations. Ophelia is a character in Shakespeare's Hamlet , who meets a dark fate when mental illness and grief over her father's murder drive her to suicide. Her name likely derives from Ancient Greek and means "benefit."

Rosemary , while being a beloved, pungent herb, is the name of a fictional character in one of the more iconic, creepy psychological thriller films in history – Rosemary's Baby . In the film, based on a novel written by Ira Levin, Rosemary has an ominous pregnancy before ultimately giving birth to, you guessed it, the spawn of Satan.

Ambrose means "immortal," much like a vampire. Stemming from the Latin word "ambrosius," this name shares roots with ambrosia – a mythical food or drink in ancient Greece that was said to make all who ingested it immortal. Considered by some to be on the preppy side, this name's meaning is perfect for those seeking a benign name with a secret dark side.

Jadis is the name of the fictional villain from C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia. Known as the Queen of Charn and the White Witch, she appears in the first two books: The Magician's Nephew, and The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Jadis is part giant, and said to be the offspring of an iteration of the biblical Lilith. Bound by misery and an evil heart, she is responsible for Narnia's eternal winter.

Nyx is a goddess and the personification of night in Greek mythology. She is the daughter of Chaos and the mother of the gods Hypnos, Thanatos, and Erebus (the personifications of sleep, death, and darkness, respectively). She is reputedly feared by Zeus, the king of the gods. The one syllable, the x-ending (think Bex), and the potential to be a nickname for Phoenix make this somewhat mysterious, dark name, which sounds like "nothing," all the more alluring.

Poe is a perfect, short, nonbinary name. The surname of macabre writer and poet Edgar Allan Poe, whose poem "The Raven" explores death and loss and opens with the famous line "Once upon a midnight dreary," makes it especially appealing to anyone looking for a gothic-themed name. Poe was also famous for his short stories, including The Cask of Amontillado , in which a man buries another man alive to get revenge for an insult.

Salem is the name of a town in Massachusetts with a rich history of Puritanism, hysteria, and paranoia toward any woman who practiced what was considered "the devil's magic." The Salem witch trials resulted in 20 women being hanged as "witches" over crimes as benign as using herbs as medicine. At least 200 others were sentenced to jail for practicing "Satanism." These punitive acts have since been proven unwarranted, but the legacy of this New England seaport town lives on through Arthur Miller's play The Crucible and the Salem Witch Museum.

Tales of ghosts date back to ancient times and have played a role in a huge variety of cultures worldwide.

Ghost stories as old as five thousand years have been found! In ancient Mesopotamia, for example, people believed that each death created a “gidim,” or ghostly image of the person at the time of their death. https://www.thecollector.com/ghost-stories-ancient-greece-rome/ ' data-toggle="tooltip" data-html="true">[1]

How to create your own funny ghost names.

There are endless opportunities to create unique, funny names for a ghost!

Keep these tips in mind to help you brainstorm:

  • Think of a ghost’s characteristics. What do you picture when you think of a spirit? If you imagine a floating, translucent being, you might choose a name like “Misty” or “Cloud,” inspired by how it looks. If you picture a dark creature that holds a grudge, you might choose a name like “Shadow” or “Diablo.”
  • Get inspiration from history and folklore. There are so many ghost stories and myths worldwide. You can take inspiration from these to find an excellent ghost name! Look into cultures you’re unfamiliar with for options that will seem new and fascinating. For example, suppose you’re most familiar with European ghost stories. In that case, you might look to East Asia for stories like Korea’s egg ghost (a spirit with no limbs or facial features) or Japan’s Hitodama (floating balls of fire representing human souls).
  • Avoid the obvious. Though it’s great to get inspiration from ghost stories, some of the ghost names you’ll find there are already highly well-known, like “Casper” or “Bloody Mary.” Avoid using options like these if you want something truly unique and funny!

Human resources won’t use my name in emails because of my unfortunate initials.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

When naming a child, you might try and steer clear of any possible negative connotations.

But sometimes that’s easier said than done, especially if you accidentally overlook your future child’s initials.

A woman named Samantha recently went viral on TikTok for sharing how her name has drawn negative attention as she’s gotten older and started operating in professional workplaces.

Clearly, her parents didn’t think about email address conventions when she was born in the 90’s.

An unfortunate email address

She begins the clip by announcing that she is moving to another job soon, something that fills her with “dread” because of an issue that always arises when she changes workplaces.

“I always have to have the tough conversation about how my name fits into a company email structure,” she continues.

@thesam_show sorry if i talk about this problem too much but it is HAPPENING AGAIN!! ♬ original sound – Sam Hart

“My name is Samantha Hart,” she explains. 

“And most companies use the email designation of first initial, last name, meaning my email would be ‘shart’.”

For the uninitiated, “shart” is a term for an unexpected, well, let’s just say, mishap, when one is trying to pass gas. 

“Fix it. Give me something else”

Samantha says she’s had two professional jobs so far and they’ve both had that email structure, leading HR to reach out to her on both occasions.

The woman says all of her workplaces have followed the same email structure.

“They told me that my name doesn’t exactly fit the email structure and would I mind if they gave me a different structure for my email,” she says.

“To which I say, yeah, I don’t want an email that says shart. Fix it. Give me something else.”

She now wants to know if she should proactively reach out to her new job to let them know or make them initiate the awkward conversation. 

People shared their equally unfortunate names

Both HR offices have asked Samantha if she would follow a different email structure.

The response to her video was a flood of solidarity from fellow ‘unfortunate name’ bearers.

From Chris Littmann (email: Clittmann) to Samantha Wallo (Swallo), the confessions kept rolling in.

Sue Hartlove’s work email?

One user said they knew a Tiffany Estes (Testes), and someone called Rach says her alias is Rkelley.

Then there’s the unforgettable BAllsman and also Patrick Ecker.

Ohio State expected to name Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork to succeed Gene Smith

Ohio State is expected to hire Texas A&M’s Ross Bjork to succeed Gene Smith as the school’s athletic director, a source told The Dispatch Monday.

Bjork, 51, has been Texas A&M’s AD since 2019. He was previously at the Mississippi and Western Kentucky.

He is a native of Dodge City, Kansas, and graduated from Emporia State. He played fullback on Emporia State's football team.

Bjork’s expected hiring comes just days after Ted Carter officially began as Ohio State’s new president . Ohio State’s Board of Trustees must approve the hiring. Their next meeting is in February.

In an interview with The Dispatch on Thursday , Carter said the first word that comes to mind in hiring a new AD is "leader." The individual would need to "know how to work across a very complex spectrum," he said.

Carter was also looking for someone who understands the vast challenges and changes taking place across the college athletics landscape — name, image and likeness opportunities, conference realignments, changes to the college football playoffs and managing 36 Division 1 teams, to name a few.

"We need to hire somebody that is not learning on the job," Carter said. "(They) have to come in with a whole lot of experience, understand the challenges that are out in front of us, be able to make certainly hard decisions — because there will be some hard decisions coming up."

If he is hired, Bjork would be the ninth athletic director in school history. He has no ties to Ohio or the Big Ten.

His tenures at Ole Miss and Texas A&M were not without controversy. At Ole Miss, Bjork repeatedly defended then-football coach Hugh Freeze against 21 NCAA rules violation charges, including a failure-to-monitor charge against Freeze and a lack of institutional control. The NCAA infractions committee said Ole Miss had "an unconstrained culture of booster involvement in football recruiting."

The allegations included charges of a cash payment to a linebacker. Freeze was eventually fired after it came to light from a public records request filed by his predecessor, Houston Nutt, that Freeze had placed at least 12 phone calls to escort services.

Ole Miss issued a self-imposed bowl ban for the 2017 season. The NCAA added a bowl ban for the following season.

"This is now the third case over three decades that has involved the boosters and football program," the NCAA panel said when announcing the bowl ban. "Even the head coach acknowledged that upon coming to Mississippi, he was surprised by the 'craziness' of boosters trying to insert themselves into his program. At the hearing, Mississippi's chancellor acknowledged his institution's problem with boosters, characterizing one instance as 'disturbingly questionable.'"

The NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee partly overturned the sanctions, eliminating a restriction on unofficial visits to the school.

At Texas A&M, Bjork fired football coach Jimbo Fisher in November. Fisher was lured to Texas A&M from Florida State in 2017 with a guaranteed, 10-year, $75 million contract. Bjork didn't become Texas A&M's AD until 2019, but he extended Fisher's contract in 2021 through 2031 and allowed it to remain fully guaranteed.

No offset or stipulation was included in the extension to reduce the amount A&M owes Fisher if he takes another job. As a result, the school owed Fisher $76 million.

"It was a mistake, as we look back on it," Bjork is quoted as saying in a report by Dallas television station WFAA following Fisher's firing. "There’s a lot of other buyouts where if coaches got let go today, would be more than what our buyout is. But those programs are winning. Ours didn’t work."

Despite spending more than $177 million, Texas A&M's athletics, particularly football, has been an underachiever. The Aggies had recruiting classes ranked in the top 10 from 2020-22, including the No. 1 ranking by 247Sports.com in 2022, but finished only 7-6 last year and 5-7 in 2022.

According to Bjork's contract with Texas A&M, he must pay the school $750,000 −half of his annual salary for this year − as the buyout to accept the Ohio State offer.

Bjork did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Dispatch.

The Dispatch has learned that Washington State athletic director Pat Chun was a finalist for the job. Chun spent 15 years in the OSU athletic department from 1997-2012, including as executive associate athletics director before his hiring at WSU.

Smith will retire at the end of June after serving as AD since 2005.

Former flight attendant to become first woman to lead Japan Airlines

Japan Airlines said Wednesday that it will appoint Mitsuko Tottori as its next president, in a move that will make her the first female leader in the carrier’s seven-decade history. She will start in her new role in April.

Her appointment reflects Japan Airlines’ intent to assuage customer concerns about safety, in the wake of the fiery collision between one of its passenger jets and a Japanese coast guard plane at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport on Jan. 2. Five coast guard officials were killed, but all 367 passengers and the dozen crew members aboard the jet escaped. The carrier was praised for its smooth 20-minute evacuation of a plane that was already on fire.

At a news conference announcing her appointment, Tottori praised those crew members. “I think there was a strong sense of mission to ensure that everyone evacuated safely,” she said.

“I feel very proud” of the crew, she added.

Tottori is a former flight attendant who began her career in 1985 four months before the airline’s deadliest disaster, which killed more than 500 people. Only four survived, including two children, The Washington Post reported at the time.

Tottori told reporters this week that the 1985 accident remains “deeply ingrained in my heart.”

“As someone who knew what happened then, I feel extremely responsible for passing on the importance of safety to the next generation,” she said. “I will continue to work with a strong determination for safety, which is the foundation of airlines.”

How 379 people escaped fiery Japan Airlines plane crash

The symbolism of becoming the company’s first female leader was not lost on Tottori, who promised to serve as a role model.

“There are female employees out there who are struggling with their career steps or going through big life events,” she said. “I hope that my appointment as president can encourage them or give them the courage to take the next step.”

The 59-year-old has served in roles that helped shape the company’s safety policies. She was a senior manager of the carrier’s cabin safety department from 2013 to 2015 and was a vice president overseeing the same department from 2019 to 2020, according to Japan Airlines .

The carrier has previously cited Tottori’s “high level of insight and field experience in safe flight operations” as a flight attendant, plus her work with safety and security, as reasons for naming her to senior positions.

“Safety and service are the two pillars of my career,” Tottori told reporters.
