Wicca is considered as a neo-pagan religion. Most people often relate Wicca with Witchcraft or the Craft. The most basic tenet of Wiccans is that nature is very sacred. It should be respected and valued, whatever form it may take. There are other Wiccan beliefs that make it interesting to people. If you want to become a Wiccan, there are certain things you should know. And one of them is learning how to select the right Wiccan name.
Choosing your Wiccan name is very important. It symbolizes rebirth to your new faith. Also, this name will represent you to the world of Wiccans. If you want to know how to choose a Wiccan name, here are some things you should know.
- Choose a name that represents your personality. Before choosing a name, make sure you know what type of personality you have. If you think you are a strong person, choose a name that will reflect this trait. You don't need to choose a name with direct meanings. You can also choose a name that represents your personality in a subtle way.
Also, you need to take into account how you feel about the name. Aside from considering your traits, you need to make sure that the name reflects who you are. Remember that the name you choose should represent you. Choosing a name that doesn't feel right is like denying your true self.
- Look for signs. Most Wiccans believe that their name come from signs, like visions and dreams. Open your eyes to every possibility. If you are devoted to becoming a Wiccan, finding a sign shouldn't be so hard. Try looking for signs that corresponds to nature. Most Wiccans receive a name that comes from nature.
You can also try combining a name that represent your personality and a name that comes from nature. Many believe that combining these two will make a powerful Wiccan name.
- Use numerology when choosing a Wiccan name. Do this by getting your birth number. For example, if your birthday is January 5, 1988, add all the digits together (1+5+1+9+8+8 = 32). Then simplify the final answer (3+2 = 5). This is your birth number. To find your Wiccan name, match your birth number to a name that you desire. For example, if you like the name "Amaya", create an alphabet chart. Group the letters into three: A-I, J-R, S-Z. Each group should have a corresponding number from 1-9. To check if Amaya is a good match for your birth number, get the digits of the word Amaya according to the chart you create. (A=1, M= 4, A=1, Y=7 and A=1). Add them (1+4+1+7+1 = 14). Simplify again and you will get (1+4 = 5). The name matches your birth number.
Here are some things you should consider when selecting a Wiccan name. Once you find the right Wiccan name, make sure not to share it with anybody. Remember that this name is a way to identify you. Revealing it to anybody might bring you trouble. Also, if you decide to take a name of a god/goddess, make sure that you can carry the attributes of the god/goddess you picked, including its bad personality traits.
