Absolutely!! Thanks for remembering!!
Let the brainstorm begin!!
Let’s use this topic to suggest ideas! Anything is welcome! However I recommend following these ideas on picking a coven name by Steven Posch
Avoid the humorous. Really, will the joke still seem funny 25 years down the road, after the ten thousandth repetition?
Avoid the clever. Really, will it still seem clever 25 years down the road, after the ten thousandth repetition?
Keep it lean. English likes terse.
Anything long and unwieldy will either slim down in use, or become (ugh) an acronym.
It’s best to forestall such erosive processes from the get-go.
Keep it native (or at least English-proximate). Names in languages other than English are simply pleading for satire. You know English-speakers: we will make fun of what we don’t understand.
For gods’ sakes, give us something we can pronounce.
Consider geography. Covens have a long, long history of being named for places.
Geographic names are (in general) honest and unpretentious. Interests and mythologies come and go, but place endures.
We’re nothing if not the people of place.
Steer clear of pop culture. Pop culture is a yawning vacuity. For a good coven name, you need depth, resonance, and mystery.
Move along, folks, there’s nothing here to see.
Comb the Lore. The Received Tradition is a rich source of resonant, evocative names. Avail yourself of this trove of ancestral wealth.
Consult a bard. If you know someone with a good feel for words, don’t be afraid to ask his—or her—opinion. Your local lore-master will be able to tell you what’s worthy and what isn’t.
