    Have you chosen a Pagan name to go by as your new spiritual name? If so, what is it? and what made you decide to change your name?

      My given name at with is Atarah, however when I am online or speaking of pagan things I do prefer to be called Crescent Moon. I've always felt connected to the moon and especially the crescent phase. Only recently have I found that the Goddess I connect with, Sophia, one of her symbols is that of the Crescent Moon. It's interesting how things work out. Do you have one?

        Your given name is very pretty! as is your Pagan name. smile

        I currently do not have a Pagan name, but I am considering adapting one.

        Thanks for commenting!

          My spiritual name is Rhiannon DancingOak.
          Rhiannon because the first goddess I connected with was Rhiannon (a Welsh Celtic Goddess) and Dancing Oak because my favorite tree is the oak and so "DancingOak" signifies a strong woman that is also apt to having fun and enjoying life! smile

      No I haven't, not officially, but if I did it would be this name (mistyhorizon) minus the 2003 at the end of it. The reason for this is that when I first chose this name it just 'came to me', and that was back in around 1995.

      I have two. Rhiannon the moon goddess of inspiration and autumn moon. I meditated on this for a long time and at the same time the book I was reading spoke of Rhiannon the moon goddess of inspiration so once I read that I knew it was a sign. I need all the inspiration I can get.

        Lovely name, Shelia! It seems like many Pagans follow the goddess Rhiannon.

      I have two names. One was chosen by me at my Wiccan Dedication Ceremony and that one is private.  However, my known spiritual name that was channeled through another from the Archangel Michael is Gentle Deer Lion Tamer.

    Lovely name, Kitty.

    I definitely know that RedWolf will be the last part of mine, but I cannot figure out what to do for the first part. I'll have to pray on it and see what happens. smile

    I have quite a few names hah hah - A Pagan name, a name from a  previous life, my birth name and Hawthorn which is my online name and sometimes used in real life...all my names are used by different people depending on how they or I feel comfortable on addressing each other =]

    Remember guys! Names have power! big_smile x

    My real name is pagan but I'm not revealing it because I'm a public school teacher. We are constantly getting screened by the school district and I could lose my job over admitting I like to have a beer once a month. Seriously!

    But I'll say my name is pronounced (not written) as Fig Tree in the Romany language. smile

    1. Cresentmoon2007 profile image82
      Cresentmoon2007posted 5 years ago in reply to this

      That's understandable. Still thanks for sharing a small bit of information of your name. I know that some choose not to share their Pagan name and keep it to themselves, this is something I can understand. However just the idea of a fig tree is beautiful so I am sure your pagan name is as well.

    2. Daniella Lopez profile image90
      Daniella Lopezposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      That's very understandable, klarawieck. I know many Pagans who choose to keep their Pagan name private, which isn't a bad idea in my opinion. At least with that way, it's something special that only you and the goddess know; allowing you to connect with the goddess in a stronger way.

        Thanks for understanding Daniella. The truth is that it has nothing to do with it being a pagan name. It has to do with being my real name. A lot of teachers have lost their jobs because they write something inappropriate online. And by "inappropriate" I mean something as silly as "I'm feeling a bit tipsy". We are asked to be role-models for our students in and out of the classroom, even if that means not being open about your belief, likes and dislikes. hmm That's just the way it is.

    My soul name is Sarrestia.  I say soul because through a lot of journeying and spiritual questing, I was able to trace myself, my soul as far back as I would ever be allowed to go and was told this was my name by a very amazing source.  In my path, there is the source and the divine masculine and divine feminine; when a soul is created (mind you this is not the same realm as here) by the source, the divine masculine and divine feminine imbue the soul with their energy, with their love, thus giving the soul a name.  Sar Restia; Sarrestia.
    Forgive me if my path seems a bit odd, quite different from the usual, but there you have it.

    I see this is very popular among females.

    I find no need to call myself by alternate names, as this would be a division of personal power, and ones ego.

    I choose to combine all of my personal power into the same source of output, or ego.

    I didn't think you were supposed to reveal your spiritual name because it can easily be used to cast spells or perform magick against you??

  12. That Grrl profile image78
    That Grrlposted 5 years ago

    I've never liked the name changing idea or understood why so many people do this. I use other names for online role playing games and email addresses. Paganism isn't a time when I want to dress up like someone else, or play pretend. I like to be myself, with my own, real name. It's like admitting to the world that this is who I am and I don't feel I need to hide it. Of course, this isn't practical for everyone. Some are hiding in the broom closet (do they still use that phrase?) for good/ real reasons.

    My name came to me in a dream I had when I was 13 years old, around the same time of my dedication. It is Solstice. And it stuck.

    I took on the name Kira. However, a search for my pagan name exercise resulted in a symbol popping into my mind. The symbol is completely unique so i cant link to any pictures
