Magickal Names

Magickal Names

Sometimes, when a Witch dedicates her/himself to the Craft, he/she takes a new name symbolizing his or her rebirth, much like receiving a Christian name at a Christening.
Not everyone chooses to take a magickal name. And one isn't limited to just one magickal name or the same magickal name for all life. Sometimes we feel the need to adapt our name as our lives change.
How do you find your magickal name? Well, it's different for each person. The name you choose should say something about you. Some people research, others do mediation, some just flat out know. Do you have an affinity to a specific Deity? Is there any animal, plant, tree, stone, etc. that you are drawn to?
Magickal names can be derived from anything. The common themes are taking the names of Goddesses or Gods or choosing a facet of nature that represents you.
Some Witches start out with a single-word name and then add additional ones as they progress in the craft. Some Witches have multiple names - one for their Coven, one they use in solitary workings, one for "the public" (for online, networking, etc.)
One thing to keep in mind though: The titles Lord and Lady are usually reserved for those who have reached a second degree initiation. Some Witches believe they are titles that should be earned, not assumed.


Are you a Witch without a Magickal Name? Or haven't found that ' Perfect One ' yet? Well, here are some suggestions with their meanings.

I have chosen Elspeth Baelfire. A name burned and a name of burning. What could be more suitable for one who played with fire.
Blessed be.
