If you’re anything like us, you were most likely ADDICTED to The Worst Witch when it aired on our tellies back in the 90s and early 00s.

The show felt like an old-fashioned boarding school drama, with horrible PE lessons, exams, midnight feasts, detentions and all the usual larks.

But there was a big difference; Cackle’s Academy For Witches was just that - a school for witches.

Cue broomstick crashes, spells gone awry, and super-sweet kittens for the young witches to play with.

As we’ve grown older, we’ve started looking back on the show with an air of nostalgia - and we’ve realised that it was PACKED full of gorgeous vintage baby girl name options.
