There is tremendous energy within names. Powerful symbols of identity, inspiration, and intention, names are magical tools of self-transformation. The original version of this classic guide, included in the prestigious New York Times "Reader's Guide to the Best 10,000 Books in Print," helped thousands find the perfect name for everything from their child to their coven to their cat. Now, it has been revised and expanded, and is bigger and better than ever.

The New Book of Magical Names presents a dictionary of more than 7,000 names (including pronunciations) taken from modern and ancient sources, including nature, mythology, history, fantasy literature, folklore, and faraway lands. Discover how religious and political movements, long-forgotten customs and social mores have influenced names throughout time. This fascinating guide features:

• The only dictionary of non-Christian names in print
• Names indexed both alphabetically and by the qualities they invoke      (beauty, wealth, power, and more)
• Quizzes to help you figure out your magical name
• Rituals to unleash the power within your name

Whether you are looking for a baby shower gift, initiating a new era in your own life, wanting to find a pen name, a magical name, or even a name for your house, The New Book of Magical Names is your indispensable resource.

Like the phoenix for which I am named, The New Book of Magical Names arose from the ashes of its old self as a whole new being. After the first edition (with the title The Complete Book of Magical Names) appeared, I had the luxury of time—six ...

Pagan religion is visual. We don't just hear our gods, we see them! The practice of theurgy teaches us how to see the gods in three forms: their representation in art, in the faces of other people, and in the temple of our own bodies. I've engaged in each of these practices and they all are flourishing today. Bodies of Stone I get excited in... read this article
