    Default ideas for tombstone names??

    Hi everyone,
    I am making my own tombstones out of styrofoam that I got from a construction site. So far so good, cut out some neat shapes about 3-4 feet high. Spraypainted with the stone look spray, and I am using a 3" Old enlish style letter stenciling on it. I have two made up so far and they came out great. I did Edgar Allan Poe, and also Vlad Dracula, AKA Tepes.
    I am looking for some other authentic creepy names to use, but I am drawing a blank. I dont want to use funny names, but real ones. Anyone have any suggestions along those lines that I can use?
    Thanks! Hope all is well, its getting close!!!!

    My tombstones all have names of characters from old 30's-50's horror movies. Its great to see people try to figure out the theme. (Only two ever did)

    t.k.

    Well, I kind of go for funny, I have Dee K. Enrot, Rick James: *****,etc. but to go for real names you could do Lizzy Borden, Jack the Ripper, J. Dahmer, that sort of thing. Look up the Crime Library and you learn all kinds of famous murderers and victims names.

    Halloween obsession, or possesion?

    I actually use character names from music and movies. I have two tombstones that have lillian garth and raymond garth on them. They were the husband and wife that lived in the mansion in the movie "hell night". I also use character names from King Diamond music. Most of his albums are "theme albums" and have creepy stories to them. I like using these names, for only certain people can recognize them, and it makes them that much cooler.

    I also have an incredibly real looking graveyard, so putting names like "michael myers" and "Freddy Kruger" just won't cut it.

    I'm like Hecate and tend to use all funny names on my tombstones. The only real name I can think of that we have on a stone is OJ Simpson. Made that one back around the time the trial ended. Has his DOB followed by ASAP. Then of course we have a gloved hand protruding from earth holding a bloody knife. If anyone wants to hear some funny/goofy ones let me know.

    Some of the names I made up for my tombstones:
    Alice Roten, Innis Tomb, Ima Skelton, Robin Graves, Dustin Ash, Aachen Payne, Will B. Rising, Judge Justin Fair, Waylon Specter, Helen Fyre, Eve L. Minion, Terri Fye

    That's a scary thought!

    Here are some works in progress. I've completed Ben Dover, now I am going to get one of the crawling hands and put the Freddy Knive glove over the hand and have it sticking out of the grave. Hopefully it will have enough power to wiggle the fingers.

    Mine are all goofy, most have poems or epitaphs. Here are a few:

    Here lies Drac, Wait 'til midnight, he'll be back.
    Jack the Ripper, Rest in Pieces.
    Here lies Hunter, very dead, looked for a duck instead of ducking his head.
    Here lies Piglet, Tigger bounced the Pooh out of him.

    I told you I was sick.
    I. B. Dead
    They told me not to eat that.

    One that I use and draws laughs every year reads "Norman Bates - Devoted Son".
