Names on how (not) to create
a name for yourself.
Most Wiccans (along with many Pagans, witches and magicians) adopt a new name upon initiation or dedication as a symbolic rebirthing into a new life, as is the practice of many other religions. This name is between you and your gods. Whether you tell anyone else is up to you. Some people refer to these names as "magical names" or "Wiccan names".
Names are taken from a variety of sources - mythology, nature, ethnic cultures. There's no rule to it. Baby name books can be quite helpful, as they generally state the associated meaning of all listed names. Just be sure of your reasons. "Because it sounds cool" is not a good enough reason.
is a necessary component to finding an appropriate name.
All I can say is: why???
Our alphabet and dating system are man-made and subjective. January counts as "1" because it is (currently) the first month of the year - a convention accepted inconsistently across the centuries even in Europe. England, for example, considered March 25 the beginning of the numbered year until 1752. Reckonings of time and its measurement continue to vary throughout the world. The Chinese New Year is independent of the Western New Year's Day, for example. The Wiccan ritual year starts in November at Samhain. So why are we ascribing magical powers to the thoroughly modern, Western calendar?
Numerology as practiced
by Ceremonial Magicians is a complex system that I'll readily admit I
know little about. It's generally based off the Hebrew alphabet, not our
Latin one. Hebrew itself is a complex language, in which each letter also
has other innate meanings, including a numerical value. Adding a few arbitrarily
assigned numbers together represents numerology about as well as the horoscope
in the newspaper represents astrology.
