Where Did You Get Your Magickal Name?
The tradition of taking on a magickal name is an old one in many Pagan paths. Once used to protect themselves and their covenmates or to create equality among members, magickal names are now often individually chosen to reflect or project certain traits, pantheonic allegiances or just because it sounds cool. How did YOU get your magickal name? What is the story behind it, the meaning of it and the reason that it was either given to you or you chose it?

I swiped mine! LOL! The Morrigu is my patroness, but just about every version of her name has become so common it's lost all meaning. Just try yelling *Morgan, Morgana or Morgan LeFey* and the next pagan gethering and watch how many heads turn! :) I came across mine in a Patricia Kennealy-Morrison book. It's the fictional name for The Morrigu in her books. It fits, is uncommon, and distinctive, like me! Many thanks to Ms. Kennealy-Morrison, not only for the name but for her wonderful books as well!

I found a book on ancient names, and I found the name Rhiamon, it meatn "witch" or "mystical" I thought it sounded good with Aphrodite so I named myself Rhiamon Aphrodite. I used it for about two years , then I decide I would like to name my daughter Rhiamon, so I began using my legal name , Jenni.
