Choosing a special name to use in magical rituals can be a most rewarding process. The members of the Star Mother Grove offer their choices for magical names, as well as their reasons in the list below.
Note that several witches dedicated themselves under a new Craft name at Midsummer 2000. The new names are listed in parentheses.
Also please note that this is a representative sampling of Craft names.
