  1. My birthday is in October, Him and his twin sister were due in october, I love Halloween, Spooky stuff and Fall in general, And obviously Salem is related to the cat from the show “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” And Salem is also related to Salem Massachusetts where the Salem witch trials were. So spooky stuff and the twins being due in fall motivated this choice, and so did needing to find a name to match his twin sister Sonora, I wanted them to have names that began with the same letters, since they were twins. Salem is calm, and always happy unless hungry, he is a momma’s boy and is a good napper.
