Magical Wiccan Names – 5 Tips To Choosing the Best One For You
Upon joining a Wiccan coven, members are usually asked to pick out a new name. This symbolizes the person being “born” into a new life. It also helps the individual separate his old self from his newly chosen one. With so much importance placed on this decision, choosing magical Wiccan names requires a fair amount of thought and effort.
Here are 5 tips to make choosing magical Wiccan names easier:
1. Use a baby names book. These resources are very easy to find at your local library or bookstore and have thousands of names and their respective meanings. If “wisdom” is a characteristic you want to embody, choose names that share that meaning.
2. Use “earthly” words. Because Wicca is centered around the energy and spirit found in Nature, it is common practice to use earthly words, or their derivatives, to help create your Wiccan name. Examples include using names of animals (Raeven, Magwolfe, Serpenta, etc), names of trees and shrubs (Furne, Wadoak, Salvini, etc) or other nature-related words.
3. Use historic names. Pick up a book about the history of witchcraft, and your head will be spinning with ideas for new names. You don’t have to choose the exact spelling. But if there is a past witch whose life you admire, you may use a derivative of that name for your own.
4. Use numerology. Every name can be broken down to a single number, and that number has a meaning of its own. So if you are wanting a magical Wiccan name that has to do with individuality, you would want a name whose single digit value was 1. Doing a little research online will give you a listing of the values of all digits, from 0-9. Make sure that your new name is in line with the characteristics you want to embody.
5. Use elders. If you are having trouble coming up with a new name, talk to an elder of your coven. That’s what they are there for. There are times when an outsider looking in can give you the answer you are looking for.
Choosing magical Wiccan names does not have to be a long or difficult process. But because it will be the name that represents who you want to be in your new Wiccan lifestyle, it needs to be chosen with care.
