Random Name Generator

By Theresa (Mary)

Inspired by and dedicated to Lady Pixie Moondrip, with humility and gratitude to her for her most sage council regarding the most important task of choosing a craft name.

This generator is exactly 99 names long, do no seek to tamper with the numerology so carefully wrought, for 99 is 3 3’s twice and when added together 9 + 9 = 1 8 and when added together 1 + 8 = 9 also. It took at least 5 minutes to dream that up and I don’t want my hard work spoiled!

You must use the generator 3 times only for again it is the fulfillment of your spirit guide/totem/guardian/teacher/deity’s wishes for your craft name.

NOTE: There are 6 columns and 17 lines this means that there are 3 blank boxes. If you have randomly chosen a blank box, this indicates that ______ (insert name of deity that you worship here) wishes you to only have 2 craft names and not three. When you are ready and have worked really hard the 3rd or even 4th name will be made know to you by _____ (insert name of deity that you worship here)

Titles: Your title(s) will come from the type of Wiccraft you follow. If you follow the Fairey path, that will be different from Gardenerinian, etc. I am eclectic of course, so the spirits of my totems guided me to being a High Lady

Formula for use:

  1. Get a 6-sided die* from any game available.
  2. Print the following chart.
  3. From a height of 3 feet, drop the die onto the chart
  4. What ever number appears face up on the die is the column you use; remember there are 6 across.
  5. What ever row the die lands on is the word your deity has chosen for you.
  6. You may rearrange the words to create a pleasing pattern as shown in the example below.

For example:

I dropped the die on row 16 and the number facing upright was 4 so one of my craft name is Wind. This is significant to me because I am an air sign. I knew I was on the right track.

Next I dropped the die on row 12 and the die was on 1, so that was Rose, also highly significant since I love them so much, they are my favorite flower.

Finally with much faith and belief that this would guide me to my true craft name I drop the die for the 3rd and final time. It landed on Snow.

Tremblingly I arranged the words until I knew they were in the proper order and thus I became, High Lady Wind SnowRose. I knew it was perfect since I was born during the last air sign of the zodiac, when snow can destroy gardens, but if you live in a warm climate the roses are budding.

*Die is the singular form of the word dice just get one.

Alternate method. If you have lost all you dice, don’t have a printer, etc. Here are some alternative methods.

  1. Print the name grid and glue it to a piece of cardboard.
    1. Cut the names into individual cards
    2. Put the cards into a specially crafted bag, like you might have for your tarot cards.
    3. Draw out 3 cards one at a time.
  2. Stick the printed paper on a dart board and throw 3 darts one at a time
  3. Write the names on index cards and proceed as number one does.
  4. Work hard, study and don’t worry, and soon enough you will have a true name. By that time the fluff should be really soft, smooth and minimal.

Update June 10, 2002 A very nice lady named Katie Clapham (email of kayte66@msn.com) made a TRULY random name generator based on this file. She sent me a copy and I share it with you here: Download IT!

There are some things you need to be aware of, however.

  • This file is an Excel Spreadsheet.
  • It has macros embedded in it (that’s how it works).
  • I ran this on my computer and nothing happened other than a good belly laugh.
  • I don’t know if this will work with other spreadsheet programs other than Excel.
  • While this is not copywritten, I ask you to respect the author’s hard work and ask before sending this out to the world without her permission.

Thank you so much for this Katie!
