127 Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Magickal Names
CHALLENGE ENTRY - Garnet
This challenge was just that, the challenge of how I chose my Magickal name.
When I acknowledged neopaganism as the route for me to follow, coming up with a name was hard. Rationalizing and logically, I thought, " I am going to be a witch."
…But no.
I will be THE witch
…no, no, a Sorceress!
Yes! I was going to be a Sorceress
no, more…
I would be the Sorceress. I would control the weather, control volcanoes, halt hurricanes, and be able to accomplish world peace.
And I would be called Birgid the Sorceress, Mistress of the world, all-powerful… I would walk on water and… :stop_sign:! Slow down old girl.
After I put my ego and imagination to rest, I thought
That’s all ego talking. I’m going to be me.
And so, Brigid, the Sorceress, was no more. Thank Goodness.
I did think of all my names, which were: Barbara, Ann, Elizabeth, Germain, and Beverly. Too much? I thought so too.
At the time I had reached my golden years (I’m still waiting for the gold, by the way.) and was trying to put my crystals in some sort of order. When I discovered, I didn’t have any garnet, which was my birthstone.
:bulb:” That’s it, and I became Garnet.
Let’s face it, it was sheer laziness, but it’ll do.
Garnet

@Solasta_Amore “Blessed Enchantress” is a very pretty one- a beautiful name for a beautiful soul! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@Cosmic_Curiosity That was very beautifully written, Alan, and I think you’re right that a name is just one piece of who a person is. A combination of letters can reflect parts of you, but at the end of the day it is you who makes you special! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughtful reflection on your names! :pray::heart:

@CelestiaMoon Oh my goodness- I love “Sensual Fascination”! It can see it suiting you/your business very well, Celestia! :grinning: :+1: :two_hearts: And thank you so much for bringing back how you found your magickal name- I’m feeling a wave of happy nostalgia now! You’ve worn your chosen name so well since then- it really does suit you! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@Siofra_Strega I love how you connected with and chose your names (both of them!), Siofra- it’s so much fun to look back and remember the journey of your naming! :sparkling_heart:

@Aurora_Hestia I’m so happy it’s a theme that calls to you! Good luck and I hope you have fun with your soul searching :blush:

@Artemisia Hooray for inspiration! Awww I’m really happy you like the theme, Kat- goos luck and I can’t wait to see what you choose to do! :star2:

@LexiHex “Fay” is a very pretty name- and no way! You do bellydancing? I used to be in a troop (or rather, two troops) and absolutely loved it. Bellydancing is so much fun, and I always had the suspicion that some of my sister dancers were witches too- it seems there is a lot of overlap (which is so exciting!) :dancer: :sparkles::blush:

@MeganB I love “Entranced Enchantress”- it’s like go big or go home! :joy: And oh boy more name generators!? Can’t say no to that! :laughing: This is my new favorite quiz question ever:

Best quiz question ever

Gordon Ramsey is definitely the High Priestess in my imaginary coven :rofl: (I ended up with Riz a I’imperatrice too)

@brandy20 Congrats to you on finding a magickal name you connect with, Brandy/Edana! :heart: I can tell that you have a strong bond with the flames- may you always be blessed by fire and light :fire::sparkles:

@priscilla Welcome, Priscilla/Saphira! That is an absolutely gorgeous name- just reading it brings to mind the deep blue of the ocean and skies on a clear day. It has a very soothing and healing energy to it, and really does connect well with your great grandmother’s name :blue_heart: :blush: Thank you so much for sharing!

@Dierna_Nimue_Selene I love how you chose to wear a name that connects with a book that was very meaningful to you. Books, stories, and characters are so powerful in our lives- it’s a great source of inspiration for a magickal name! :books::heart: You’ve found a name that works and fits perfectly for you- may you continue to wear it well and feel pride whenever you see it! :sparkles:

@TheMuslimWitch Your chosen name is a great one because it shows your honest and true heart- it’s a sign that you are able to be true to yourself and open with who you are, and that is a really beautiful and empowering thing! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@yolande1 It sounds like names have been on your mind for a while now! I’d like to add my support to your quest and say that the names we choose for ourselves- whether they happen to be our birth names or something else- are what hold the true power. You had a beautiful vision and it sounds like it lead you to your light- welcome, Selene! :full_moon_with_face: :sparkles: It is a name that suits you well :heart:

@Nixi Congrats to you for embarking on your quest to find a magickal name- I’m excited for you too, Melissa! :blush: Good luck and I’m wishing you all the best with your learning this week- I hope you have fun with it! :two_hearts:

@Hazel_Rae Congrats on your first challenge, Hazel Rae- welcome! :star2: I’m wishing you all the best with your soul searching this week- I hope you have fun on the journey!

@Garnet As usual, reading this made me smile- your enthusiasm and energy always shines through in your writing, Garnet, not to mention your delightful sense of humor! :laughing: :heart: You wear your chosen name very well. I hope you know that everytime I say Garnet, I think of you- you’ve become one with stone in my mind, in the most loving way possible :hugs::two_hearts: Thank you for sharing the story of your name!

Ahh! I loove buzzfeed quizzes! This one is quite relatable to you @TheTravelWitch_Bry as you are the best witchy info provider ever!!! :wink: :hugs: So you basically are as informative as Hermoine!! :kissing_heart: You know sooo many things about Wicca and magick that I feel soo fascinated! :heart_eyes:

And I love you! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

This made me smile, it would be a good forum title for you, you enchant us all with your words and bless the air with your loving presence :sparkling_heart:

Elphaba from Wicked
Never be shy to be yourself and shine completely uniquely as you are! Others may want you to conform to their expectations, but that is not your style! Flying low, flying high, you will always find the road toward your destiny. Be willing to let go of false friends, and be weary of those who try to downplay your powers.

I like this :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
The road less travelled is usually the most fun one :wink:

I did the BuzzFeed generator & I got:

Sabrina Spellman from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - You are exploring and coming into your power. You strive to find balance within the supernatural and mortal realms. Whenever you are in doubt of what actions are best, consult your familiar (most likely a cat!). Which Famous Fictitious Witch Are You? :rofl:

@Solasta_Amore thank you so much! At this time, I honestly can’t think of a better name for myself to use in my BoS or within the coven. I love this one & was so happy when I got to add ‘Strega’ to it :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@TheMuslimWitch I would definitely use what you are comfortable with using & that you are happy with using :smiling_face:

CHALLENGE ENTRY
Finding a witch name is such a fun challenge and one I’ve been thinking about for the last few months coincidentally. It’s a delicate thing to choose a witch name though. I tend toward names that are too based in fantasy or lean toward adult film star!! Bow chicka bow wow! :wink:

My alias on most of my social media outlets is RedJoy, which is a name that is very meaningful to me. I am a Scottish/Irish/English redhead :woman_red_haired: and completely love that my red hair is part of my identity. “Joy” is a state of being that I seek out daily, but “RedJoy” doesn’t feel witchy to me at all. :mage:

However, because the color red and my heritage are so important, I thought I’d play around with variations on the word and consider drawing inspiration from Gaelic. I’m also thinking of adding in a water sign name because I am a Pisces. :pisces:

So I’ve been thinking about Azuris Rae or maybe Azuris Blaze. Azuris for water, practicality, realism, reliability, discipline, sincerity and experience. Rae and Blaze for red and fire, and also because they imply joy and warmth. I don’t know, I need to think about it some more before I commit, but I like it as a start. :thinking:

I like that, and I can relate! :sweat_smile: :heart:
Sometimes it’s fun to go all the way past “too much” I’ve found though :wink:

Hmmm… how would Crimson Ecstasy sound to you? :smirk: :heart_on_fire:
