  • MALE:

    1. AHTI: Another name for Finnish Lemminkäinen, the myth name of a god of magic, a sorcerer said to be able to "sing the sand into pearls." 

    2. BAYARD: Old French name derived from the word baie, meaning "reddish brown" or "bright bay color." In medieval romances, this was the name of a magic horse from the legends of the chansons de geste ("Songs of Heroic Deeds") which was given to Renaud by Charlemagne. It belonged to the four sons of Aymon, and had the ability to grow larger or smaller as one or more riders mounted it. According to tradition, one of its foot-prints may still be seen in the forest of Soignes, and another on a rock near Dinant.

    3. BRÖKK: Old Norse myth name of a dwarf who, along with his brother Eitri, made magical objects for the gods, including the hammer of Thor, probably derived from the Nordic element bróka, meaning "breeches."

    4. DAGDA: Irish Gaelic name meaning "the good god." In Celtic mythology, this is the name of a god of knowledge and magic, and a leader of the Tuatha Dé Danann, supernatural beings who inhabited Ireland prior to the coming of the Celts.

    5. EITRI: Norse myth name of a dwarf who, along with his brother Brökk, made magical objects for the gods, including the hammer of Thor.

    6. FINN: Old Irish form of modern Gaelic Fionn, meaning "fair, white." In Irish legend, this is the name of a hero, Finn MacCool, who became all-knowing after eating a magic salmon. Compare with another form of Finn.
    7. LEMMINKÄINEN: Finnish myth name of a hero of the Kalevala, a sorcerer or magician said to be able to "sing the sand into pearls." The meaning of the name is unknown but it is probably related to the name Lempi, meaning "love."

    8. MERLIN: English form of Latin Merlinus, the name of a famous wizard of Arthurian legend, meaning "sea-fort." Merlin was introduced into Arthurian legend by Geoffrey of Monmouth. According to Geoffrey, Merlin was the son of a demon and a princess. He became known for his prophetic abilities at a very young age and was consulted by King Vortigern to explain why his castle kept collapsing. Merlin revealed that there was an underground lake in which two dragons slept, a white one and a red one, representing the Saxons and Britons, and this was the portent for things to come. He is also called Myrddin Emrys, meaning "Merlin the Immortal." 

    9. MYRDDIN: Welsh legend name of the magician who guided the destiny of King Arthur, derived from Celtic Mori-dunum, meaning "sea fort." Mori-dunum was a place in Wales later called Carmarthen. Myrddin was introduced into the Arthurian legend by Geoffrey of Monmouth. Because of its close resemblance to the French word merde, meaning "excrement," the name was changed from Myrddin to Merlin.

    10. SKÍÐBLAÐNIR: Old Norse name composed of the elements skíð "plank or stick of wood" and blaðnir "blade, leaf," hence perhaps "wood leaf" or wood blade." In mythology, this is the name of the magical ship of Freyr, said to be the best of ships. 

    11. SKIDBLADNIR: Anglicized form of Old Norse Skíðblaðnir, possibly meaning "wood leaf" or "wood blade." In mythology, this is the name of the magical ship of Freyr, said to be the best of ships.

    13. THOTH (Θωθ): Greek form of Egyptian Djehuty, meaning "he who balances." In mythology, this is the name of a god of the moon, magic and science.

    14. URIEL (אוּרִיאֵל): Anglicized form of Hebrew Uwriyel, meaning "flame of God" or "light of the Lord." In the bible, this is the name of a Levite, and the maternal grandfather of Abijah. It is also the name of one of the seven archangels whose names were removed from the Church's list of recognized angels in 145 A.D. He was said to have been one of the angels stationed at God's throne. He was considered the wisest of the archangels because his light was not merely of the physical kind, but rather the ultra-spiritual kind, making him highly intellectually illuminated. Some think Uriel was the angel who warned Noah of the coming flood, and helped the prophet Ezra interpret a prediction concerning the coming Messiah. He is also said to be the angel of divine magic, alchemy, writing, earthquakes, floods, and other kinds of cataclysms. 

    15. VADIM (pronounced vuh-DEEM): A rare Russian name which some etymologists believe must have its root in Slavic vadit or vedet, meaning "to know," because pagan magicians were called veduny, "the knowing ones." 

    16. VADIMAS: Lithuanian form of Russian Vadim, probably meaning "knowing one."

    17. VÄINÄMÖINEN: Finnish myth name of a magician and hero of the Kalevala, who is challenged by the youth Joukahainen. The name means "wide and slow-flowing river." 

    18. VELES (Велесъ): Variant form of Slavic Volos, meaning "ox." In mythology, this is the name of a god of the earth, underworld, dragons, cattle, magic and trickery. He is an enemy of Perun and is described as being horned and serpentine. 

    19. VOLOS (Волосъ): Slavic name derived from the word volu, meaning "ox." In mythology, this is the name of a god of the earth, underworld, dragons, cattle, magic and trickery. He is an enemy of Perun and is described as being horned and serpentine. Also known as Veles.

    20. ZADKIEL: According to pseudo-Dionysius, this was the name of an archangel of freedom, benevolence, and mercy. Though not named in the bible, he is believed to be the angel who held back Abraham's hand to keep him from sacrificing his son. He is associated with ritual magic, and the planet Jupiter. His name means "righteousness of God" in Hebrew.

  • FEMALE:

    1. CERIDWEN: Welsh name composed of the elements cerdd "poetry" and (g)wen "fair, holy, white," hence "fair poetess." In mythology, this is the name of a female magician, the mother of Taliesin, Morfran (Avagddu), and the fair maiden Creirwy.
    2. ISIS (Ίσις): Greek form of Coptic Esi, meaning "(female) of the throne," which is usually translated "Queen of the throne." This name is a corruption of her true name which is unknown because Egyptian hieroglyphs left out most of the vowels. In mythology, this is the name of a goddess of magic.
    3. LOUHI: Finnish myth name from the Kalevala, possibly meaning "trance." Louhi was a queen of Pohjola, and a witch with the ability to shape-shift and cast powerful magic spells. 
    4. OLWEN: Welsh Arthurian legend name of the heroine of Culhwch and Olwen, composed of the elements ol "footprint, track," and (g)wen "fair, holy, white," hence "footprint/track of the holy one." Olwen was the daughter of the fierce giant Ysbaddaden who was fated to die if she ever married. She was a magical girl who caused flowers to spring up wherever she went. When Culhwch (a cousin of King Arthur) came to seek her hand, Ysbaddaden required that he complete a series of nearly impossibly tasks before he would grant permission for them to marry.
    5. OLWIN: Variant spelling of Welsh Olwen, meaning "footprint/track of the holy one."
    6. OLWYN: Variant spelling of Welsh Olwen, meaning "footprint/track of the holy one."
    7. ORENDA: Native American Iroquois name meaning "magic power."

    8. TAIKA: Finnish name meaning "magic."

    9. VADOMA: Possibly a Romani feminine form of Russian Vadim, a name which some etymologists believe must have its root in Slavic vadit, vedet, or wiedziec, meaning "to know," because pagan magicians were called veduny, "the knowing ones." 

    10. WAKANDA: Native American Sioux name meaning "possesses magical power."
