Choosing a Magickal Name
Many people have written me asking me how to come up with a Magickal name. This
page is going to be short and sweet. So here's a little help for you. Well first
of all, you can make up whatever name you so choose. Here are some ideas….
Look up old Medieval names on Google and you’ll
find hundreds of names to choose from such as "Eadred" who was King of the West
Saxons or "Cutha" who was another King of the West Saxons. The list goes on
One good method is to look up your Astrological Constellation.
When you find a page that tells about that Constellation…. Look at the
names of the Stars in it. Such as the Alpha Star which is the brightest Star
of that Constellation. You can use that name or any of the other Star names.
Simply find one that appeals to you. You can even change the spelling to fit
you taste. For example…. The Aries Constellation…. "Hamal" is the
Alpha Star or "Sharatan" is the Beta Star and of coarse "Mesarthim" is Gamma
Star. Any one of these names would be great to use. This way you have a connection
with that name. You could even use the Genitive name for Aries which is "Arietis".
But you can choose any Star name... even if it is not your Constellation.
Yes you can look up Dragon, Serpent or Snake names
from novels or movies. Such as "Dracul" which is the Romanian name meaning Dragon
or Devil. How about "Chua" which is a Native American Hopi name meaning Snake.
Once again just as I already stated…. "Chua"
which is a Native American Hopi name meaning Snake. There are allot Native American
names to choose from.
There and hundreds of these…. I'm
not going to type them out for you.... just Google or Bing it!
- Mythical and Folklore names
So you see there are so many ways to find a Magickal name to use in your Occult
workings. However you choose your Magickal name…. it does not even have
to mean anything as long as it has a nice ring to it. This is about you and
no one else. You can make up a word that does not exist and use it for your
name. Like I said…. This is about you!
