I was browsing Wikipedia and decided to compile the most unusual names of people executed or accused of witchcraft/sorcery/necromancy. As you can imagine there are vastly more female names, but there are a couple cool male names.

Most of the names date from the 16th-17th centuries when witch hysteria was sweeping Europe, but a couple are older or more modern. No names are from beyond the 19th century.

Female:

Polissena
Marketta
Wilmot
Gyde
Marigje
Merga
Sidonia, or Sidonie
Michée
Gillis
Nyzette
Metteuccia
Peronne
Alizon

Mercy (a child vampire)
Christenze
Alce (maybe a shortening of Alice?)
Temperance

Gobel
Lussi
Dorthe
Sigri
Solve or Solvi
Malene
Mette
