Everyone On Twitter Is Changing Their Name For Halloween

Yes, everyone. It's fun, you should try it!

This may or may not have started as a Weird Twitter thing (as a commenter noted, it's also a Simpsons Treehouse of Horror thing), but for some reason people on Twitter are changing their names for Halloween.

Everyone is being really fun and creative with it.

My name lends itself to an easy Halloweenification.

But finding the right name can be tough.

Some names are too long.

Reach out for some help.

Add some symbols to make it creepier.

It feels great to find the right Halloween name.

If you're lucky, @darth will even make you a poster.

Help us find Halloween names for our hosts!

Help us give our WNYC hosts and reporters a Halloween name, I might just be able to convince them to use the best picks on air.

Leave your suggestions in the comment or tweet them to @WNYC.

  1. WNYC = WNY-SCREAM
  2. Brooke Gladstone
  3. Soterios Johnson
  4. Andrea Bernstein
  5. Anna Sale
  6. Richard Hake
  7. Brian Lehrer = Brian SCARER
  8. Kathleen Horan = GOTHleen Horan
  9. Sarah Gonzalez
  10. Janet Babin
  11. Yasmeen Khan
  12. Arun Venugopal

There's a fun #NPRHalloweenName Twitter game with some fun suggestions for other public radio hosts and shows.

I'm not sure how it exactly started on Twitter, but it surely seems reminiscent (and therefore possibly inspired by) the credits on the annual Halloween episodes of The Simpsons. This apparently started with the second such special "Treehouse of Horror II", which aired in 1991.

In typical Internet fashion, someone has obsessively compiled a list on The Simpson Archive site.
