Bullet Point: The popularity of mage names has declined over the past few centuries. This is probably because they are seen as a relic from an older time, when magic was more in tune with nature than it currently is. It’s always been possible to take on your own unique name if you wanted to and there have also been other traditions that used specifically feminine or masculine naming conventions. *This blog post will explore how to find your true identity through a modern technique called “naming by sound.” Don’t miss out!

Mage Names are assigned to every mage born into the world. They can be given at birth or chosen later in life, but they do not change after that point. A person’s name is considered their most personal identifier and it cannot be changed without great cost, so a mage will usually keep the same one throughout their lifetime.
There are no “standardized rules” for what names say about mages other than that all of them must come from some language on Earth (excluding extinct ones). Some people believe that specific naming traditions carry with them certain personality traits which best match those who adopt the tradition as their own, while others take alternative views like arguing there is nothing predictable about how an individual chooses their mage name.
A person’s mage name can only be changed through a very intensive ritual that sacrifices the old one for their new identity, but this is not considered an option until they are at least 18 years of age and have completed all five levels of training in order to become a full healer. Changing ones’ mage name more than once after becoming a fully trained healer will require another sacrifice, which may or may not end up being human blood depending on how many times someone changes it afterward. There are also some mages who choose to keep their original names even if they had been given as part of their birthright because they felt like there was no other choice available to them (i.e., it would feel too much like a re-birth of sorts to take on an entirely new identity).
There are no mages who have two mage names because it is considered unlucky, and the rituals for changing one’s name more than once after becoming fully trained will only work if they were given as part of their birthright. Changing ones’ mage name more than once after taking up full training can be done with human blood depending on how many times someone changes it afterward but there are some that refuse this option so they keep their original name even though they had been given at birth (i.e., it would feel too much like a rebirth to take on an entirely new identity) or in rare cases where people’s parents change them into something else without permission.
Some mages will adopt the name of a dead mage or one that they admire. The most common use for this is to take on their mentor’s name after death (e.g., Morden takes up his master, Kharedu’s, given name). Others might choose to honor someone they lost by naming themselves in their memory and still others may just want to distance themselves from some shame by adopting a new identity while retaining what has become integral parts of them through years of training and study – like an idea that becomes too entrenched in who you are as person because it’s been with you so long, it feels like part of your core being. There are plenty more reasons people change their names than but these tend to be the most common.
o one has to be a mage, or even have magic in their bloodline for it to happen – some of the more complicated and intricate ceremonies involve rituals from other disciplines which may not seem related at all on the surface (e.g., those who take up an art like painting following the death of someone important). A magi typically chooses his own name when he first comes into power but sometimes will choose again later if they feel that old name no longer suits them. It’s very rare for anyone else to give someone another’s new name without permission so this is usually limited to high-status persons such as kings, queens, etc., though there are exceptions (e.g., parents giving children names).
A mage’s name is usually a combination of two or three words, with the first word being their magical discipline. For example, “Eldritch” means they are primarily focused on magic related to spirits and souls while someone like “Windsinger” would be more about wind-based magics as well as songs that can affect emotions. There are exceptions for other languages which may have different rules but most mages prefer English when naming themselves since it makes spellcasting easier (e.g., Latin might use declensions).
Some examples include: Aaron Greywalker – necromancer; Lucy Windspinner – elementalist by training with an emphasis on air spells; Alyssa Earthshaker – earth & stone specialist who specializes in the creation of earth-based defenses
The most common types are: Elementalist, Necromancer, Theurgist (those who use magic as an expression of faith), and Animator. There is a lot more to learn about mage names but we hope this article helped you understand what they’re all about!
TIP 12 – Mage Names in Other Languages Here’s some interesting facts for both aspiring mages and those with a lifelong interest in magic: Latin uses declensions which means that one word can have different meanings depending on how it’s declined. Additionally, there are no “female” or “male” translations because gender doesn’t exist so people would be called by their profession instead. For example someone like “Myrddin” could be translated as “the wizard,” but it can also mean “fern.”
TIP 13 – Mage Names in Other Languages In Spanish, the suffix “-or” is used to distinguish male mages from female or gender-neutral ones. For example, someone called Victor would identify as male and one called Victoria would identify as a woman. This way you know who’s talking about what!
TIP 14 – Mage Names in Other Languages The main goal for German speakers when translating mage names is identifying where their origin lies; some have roots in French, others are Scandinavian while many more derive from Greek words that they adopted into English over centuries of trade with other countries. As an example: Hilda is a Germanized form of Hildegard, which is derived from hild meaning “battle” and gart meaning “watch.” TIP 15 – Mage Names in Other Languages In Korean, mage names are translated similarly to how they’re translated in Spanish. For example: 메이드 (male) or 마에다 (female). But unlike their Western counterparts who only differentiate genders with the suffix “-or,” Koreans also use one-syllable words that denote where a person’s origin might be. So for example if someone were called 웨트하니 then it would mean he was from West Haven! TIP 16
