    Magick Name

    Name

    Most Wiccans choose a Craft name (also known as a

    magickal name or eke-name). Because Wicca is a new way

    of life, it is traditional to find a new name that you feel

    suits you. At birth, we are given names without any

    personality to base it on. When you choose a Craft name,

    it will be something very much a part of you, perfectly

    fitting and comfortable. A name is a symbol of yourself.

    You should choose a name that fits you just right. It

    should say something about your personality. And of

    course, choosing a new name represents the birth of a

    "new" you as you enter the world of magick, paganism, and

    the God and Goddess.

    Here are some guidelines:

    Let your name come to you. If you try to force

    yourself to come up with a name, you'll only end up with

    something that sounds nice, but will always seem a little

    less than fitting. The name that suits you will come along

    and be just right.

    Try thinking of it from this perspective: What would

    you be, if you weren't a human? An animal? An inanimate

    object, like a flower or a tree? Or would you be a great

    body of water, or a torrent of wind and rain, or a mirage

    in a hot desert? Think of yourself that way, and it may

    help the name form in your mind.

    Think about how others see you. Imagine being on the

    outside, talking to yourself... a little like reflecting your

    personality so it's more tangible. Then maybe that name

    will come to you!

    Consider your personality. What name would represent

    your characteristics best? Names like "Charisma" or

    "Star" might suggest an outgoing personality, while a

    name like "Dove" or "Innocence" would represent a shy,

    gentle person. Go from there.
