Wiccan Names – What Is My Witch Name?

The witch’s name is one of the least tangible yet, the most important of all, your magical tools. Pick one of the Wiccan names that signify who you decide to be. Do not forget that speech is an incredibly powerful magical tool. Taking an intentional name is like working a spell or setting a positive affirmation. Every time someone says it, the energy moves within both of you. The Universe shifts to help you be that person. The outcome is amplified when it is a Wiccan name because you’re using it between the worlds, where magic is real. (Source)

Witch Names and Meanings

Wiccan Names - What Is My Witch Name

The name you use now is the name you probably used all your life. All the thoughts you’ve ever formed about yourself are in this name.

Since the name represents who you think you are, it’s very healthy and time-consuming to purge all your unwanted thoughts and feelings about yourself and your name. Until you do this, however, your witch name may not feel like a powerful magical word for you.

The best practice is to devise and use a new magical name while working your magic. Choose the magical name reflecting your powerful, free, healthy, happy witch aspect.

Choose Your Witch Name

Many choose the name of their favourite God or Goddess, Hero or Heroine or another powerful legendary character. Some people prefer a name based on numerological calculations, and others want one based on how it sounds. There are no rules about coming up with a witch name other than adopting one that feels right and good in your heart.

The sound of your name should be a statement to you.

It says: “This is who I am! This is what I’m doing as a witch! I’m happy about it.”

Your witch name is not a device for running away from yourself or your past. It is an opportunity for you to take charge of your magical life. Your witch name is like a little button you push in your conciseness every time you speak it. It opens up the gate of your magical self.

Some witches have two craft names: a public name and a private one.
The “public” is the one that is used through craft circles and gathering in their community. The private name is the one that they share with few if any, people. A secret craft name would be the link between the deepest parts of their minds and the Gods.

At this point, just using one craft name is sufficient—one you use for yourself and when interacting with others. Once you discover your witch name, say it aloud to the Cosmos.

“I am …….(state your craft name) a wonderful, powerful Witch and I deserve happiness and success on my path.”

Sure, you can use a Wiccan names generator or go down the standard list of Pagan Magical Names, but for most people, finding one unique and speaks to our personality and values is more gratifying.

Whatever method you use, think carefully before you finalize your new witch name. Find which of the Wiccan names is right for you — and when it IS the right one, you will know.
