The New Book of Magical Names by Phoenix McFarland



I have Phoenix McFarland's first book of Magical Names and just love it! My only complaint with it she fixed in this release there was no decent index. This index is much more complete and easier to use. If I had to find a problem with this book, it would have to be she focused to much on movie character names in this book opposed to digging deeper and finding out more about truely unique names that she already had. Yes she has a wonderful list of everything, but now I would like to see her expand on these names. I even chose the name of my company from her book  .

I have been obsessed with names/their meanings/spellings ever since I can remember! By the time I was 10 I think I had 5 different name books and could rattle off to you what almost any name meant and various spellings for it.

I have Phoenix McFarland's first book of Magical Names and just love it! My only complaint with it she fixed in this release there was no decent index. This index is much more complete and easier to use.

If I had to find a problem with this book, it would have to be she focused to much on movie character names in this book opposed to digging deeper and finding out more about truely unique names that she already had. Yes she has a wonderful list of everything, but now I would like to see her expand on these names.

I even chose the name of my company from her book. My company's name is Omicle. Omicle is a Phoenician Goddess who mated with 'Desire' and believed to have given birth to all! I have not been able to find out much more about Omicle anywhere else!

Book was in good condition, though pages were quite yellowed, although they were not yet brittle, due to age. The book included a good many names, from Gods to Fairies and characters from literature and the movies. The book gave the history and/or the mythology of the names. There was also a brief section on how many Wiccans and Druids choose their names. I was disappointed there was not an alphabetical list index including the meaning and brief etymology of the names, i.e., whether Greek, Hebrew, Celtic, etc. and the pages on which they appeared.

This book gives out a lot of information about the meaning of names and cross references from alphabetical order to categorical listings. I really like the format as well as the contact. I like this book much better than Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names, which is basically a volume of every name known to mankind. I wanted a book that specifically associates names with witchcraft or pagan name ideas and find this book by Phoenix McFarland the best reference material.

I bought the first version of this book and just had to pick up this one as well. My only complaint is that a lot of the original "Book of Magical Names" is re-hashed in the "New Book of Magical Names" (which is why it only got 4 stars) When I buy book 2, I expect nothing but new stuff! If you have not purchased the first book, then only buy the second because you really don't need both.
The details, quality and extensive info contained on magical and meaningful names is marvelous! I recomend this not only to pagans but to anyone who needs names. You will not find names like these on those "baby name" sites. You also won't find the insight and information contained there either. This book is essential for almost anyone's library and I personally find it incredibly useful. I love this book!

This is an interesting reference book of names. I love the section on names from the 1500's! As a pediatric nurse I see plenty of strange names, and I love to show co-workers evidence that humans have been giving their children weird names for forever.

It's basically like a baby naming book, but with more paragraphs and history. I was expecting something closer to "hey these are some great ways to figure out your magical name", not something like those superhero name generators (favorite color and the object on your left). I'm sure it's a fun book to have around, but it was not for me.

It is a good book, but not great.
"Magical names harken back to rituals deep in our past when we first named ourselves, when we first looked at ourselves and knew that we were sacred." (pg. xv)
McFarland opens with a brief descrption of the history of nomenclature and its social context from the ancient Celts of 1000 CE with names like "Aelfraed", derived from aelf meaning elf, and raed council (the modern equivalent "Alfred" lends a new perspective to Batman's butler and confidant), to the more bizarre and occasionally amusing Puritan reign where such names as "Kill Sin Pimple" appear in court documents, to the current day, and even offering predictions for future naming trends.
Regarding the relatively recent trend inventing names, McFarland notes that "on one hand we are creating a generation of meaningless names (which does say something about the culture in which we live); on the other hand, others are simply spinning out new generations of older name clones (which also says something about that culture). So by the very nature of our superficiality or resistance to change, historical nomenclature is socially significant as ever." (pg. 23).
There is a large practical section devoted to naming rituals, spells, exercises, meditations, and for divining and empowering one's chosen name, whether naming oneself, a child, or a coven or group. Also discusses folklore surrounding naming customs, rites of passage, initiatory, for each degree, etc.
McFarland lends a wide variety of sources available for choosing a name: common archetypes, names from birds, the sky, space/time, light/dark, names that are traditionally last names used as first names, natural and elemental names, and name sources, places, garden, floral and fauna, as well as a huge section dedicated to selecting names from fiction: from The Lord of the Rings to The Mists of Avalon and everything in between. Though many names are left with little or no explanation beyond their historical time period or who the characters are. However, there are no "harsh" names, no mention of Kali, or Pluto, Chaos or Discordia, everything is left quite light-hearted. While it's nice to keep things positive it's not very balanced.
Offering much more than a simple compendium of names, this book will be a valuable resource in any library.
