Names with creepy meanings

A story has been forming in my mind for around 3 years set in the French revolution. The main characters are a female member of the French aristocracy and a servant boy. I’ve pretty much settled on [name]Persephone[/name] as the name for my main female because it means destroyer of peace/bringer of death which is perfect for the character. However I need a name for the servant and his sister with a similar meaning. Can anyone help me out? They don’t have to be French, I am open to anything

Most of these have bad connotations, not sure if their meaning is creepy though:
[name]Tremaine[/name] (evil stepmother from [name]Cinderella[/name])

[name]Lilith[/name]- technically means “night monster”
[name]Shiva[/name] - is the god of destruction in Hindu. Technically its a male god but I could see a girl named [name]Shiva[/name] in a book.
Tristesse - “sadness” in French
[name]Raven[/name] - symbol for death
[name]Dolores[/name] - “sorrows” in Spanish
Desdemona- means “Ill starred” or “of the devil”
Keira - means “little dark one”
Salome - technically means peace but has a negative biblical association like Delilah and Jezebel
Kora - A name meaning “maiden” born by Persephone, godess of the underworld
Hecate - godess of witchcraft
Delaney - means “dark rival”
Lamia - A demon that preys on children.
Lila - means “Night”
Circe - Greek sorceress
Zilla - Hebrew for “shadow”

Damon, Damian
Drake/Draco - means “dragon”
Blake - means “dark”
Abaddon - Hebrew, regarded as the destroyer angel
Alastor - demon, regarded as the "executioner
Azazel - demon of war
Beelzebub - means “devil”
Oleander - poisonous flower
Salem - creepy place name

[name]Just[/name] thought of another [name]Videl[/name] - rearrange the letters and it spells Devil

First names to come to mind…[name]Desdemona[/name], [name]Helga[/name], [name]Elvira[/name]. Not sure if they’d be considered ‘creepy’ though.

The name [name]Bran[/name] for the boy but it’s not very French…[name]Damon[/name] is very nice.
[name]Leila[/name] or [name]Layla[/name] for the girl. The other names provided are great too ^^
