Your Name. (Pagan)

For those mom's who have magickal names, how did you choose it? Did you pick something you love, did you read it in a book, hear it in a dream, etc.

I am just curious, I have yet to find a magickal name for myself.

  • I do have a magical name, when I was initiated as a preistess of a particular god I had to choose a name that was relevant to that particular god's mythological tradition. When I am not doing something specifically related to the rights of that god I tend to use words that describe me, like "seeker" or "powerful woman" etc., in the language of the tradition that inspired that particular rite if possible, rather than my name.

  • That would be like Catholics picking a Confirmation name. I wasn't being Confirmed but had to pick a name because it was an assignment in school. We were supposed to put a bunch of thought into it and pick a saint that had meaning to us. I waited until the last minute and picked the first name I liked, lol, which was Catherine. I don't even remember which saint it was but I got an A on the paper.

  • I'm pagan.. but I don't yet have a magical name. From the way I figure it, if I was meant to have one, it will come to me. I don't know how and I dont know when.. but the cosmos have a great way of revealing things to us when we're least expecting it. I am patiently waiting.

  • I am pagan and I do not have one yet... I feel that one will come to me when it is time...
    I have tried creating one, but none seem to either fit or feel right so I wait for the Goddess to reveal it to me in time...

  • There are a couple names that I feel very close to that I feel have called to me.
    I read that if you see it, dream it, hear it more than 3 times its meant to be yours.

    I think if something specific pulls you, you will know it. It will fit and feel right.

  • OH and I wanted to add too that some people never have one nor want one.

    So if you never feel drawn to one,etc that is ok too.

  • my name was hazel dove... when I use to follow wicca. I was really into studying numerology, and that along with a few other things got me my name. (however it should have been hazel hawk. but since it didn't fit into the numerology thing, my friend (who was a big help in learning wicca) choice dove for me.

  • I have a migickal name and it came to me while meditating about it just before my self-initiation. (I am a solitary eclectic, partly green, partly dianic.)
