Horror Land - Cute Vampire

Vampires have become a huge part of our culture, whether we are reading about them in books, or watching them on TV. Bram Stoker’s Dracula was one of the very first pieces of vampire literature that was widely released. It is on this novel that we get many of the myths of a vampire, and even to this day, many of Dracula’s traits are found in modern vampires. However, as the vampires become more westernised, the character names began to change. So whilst Dracula ruled the 1800’s, the likes of Russel (True Blood) and Alex (Crimson) rule the 21st.

Every character needs a name and inspiration can come in many forms, but the best way is to look upon the history of names and characters that have been haunting our imaginations for centuries.

Where do vampire names come from?

Thanks to their Eastern European roots, many popular vampire names tend to sound Russian, Romanian, or Slavic.

Dracula, meaning “son of Dracul". Dracul means “dragon.”

Most popular vampire folklore originated in Eastern Europe, which is why so many have European names.

"Ambrogio", which in Italian means "immortal", is the name of the famed Italian hunter who became the first vampire of legend.

Famous Historical Vampire Names

100 Famous Vampire Names That You'll Bloody Love!


  • Vlad Dracula: Also known as Vlad the Impaler, he is often considered one of the most important rulers in Wallachian history and a national hero of Romania in the mid-1400s. He is considered to be the real-life inspiration behind Dracula, but recent evidence now points away from this theory. 
  • Mercy Brown: In one of the best documented cases of the exhumation of a corpse, to banish a vampire, Mercy Brown and two of her family members were dug up, after they died of tuberculosis. Locals believed that the family had become vampires and they exhumed the bodies to banish the evil. Whilst the others had decomposed, Mercy was found to be in a perfect state, with blood still in her heart. As superstition dictated, Mercy’s heart and liver were burned
  • Arnold Paole: Arnold was a member of the Serbian militia in the 1700s, and he claimed that whilst serving in the army, he encountered a vampire. After his death, locals claimed they had seen him wandering the town. When these people started to mysteriously die, a group consisting of two military officers, two army surgeons, and a priest, exhumed Arnold’s body and drove a stake into its heart. They claim the corpse cried out when they did this. 
  • Peter Plogojowitz: Peter Plogojowitz was a Serbian peasant who was believed to have become a vampire after his death and to have killed nine of his fellow villagers. The case was one of the earliest, most sensational and most well documented cases of vampire hysteria
  • Countess Elizabeth Bathory: Elizabeth Bathory’s fame as a legendary vampire is only outrivalled by Count Dracula. Born into a wealthy family in the 1600s, Elizabeth became notorious for killing young women and drink their blood to preserve her youth. Legend also tells of how she bathed in the blood of virgins, but there is no evidence of this.
