This ritual can be adapted and used for changing your magical name, adding a name to a coven or adding another name to yourself.
The ritual should be initiated on Imbolc or Litha holidays. To start the initiation ritual, you must first create a Wiccan magic circle. Summon the elements, the Goddess and the God. While standing with hands held up to the sky, say the following:
Put your hands down and say the following:
Now kiss your right palm, raise your hand high and say:
Take a cup of wine and carefully pour the wine into the pot, and say:
Dip your finger in the oil and draw a sun cross using your oiled finger, surrounded by a circle on your forehead. Draw a sign of the pentagram below your heart and then draw a holy triangle on your chest (first on the right and then on the left). You will now need to call for recognition.
Raise your hands up and wide, and say the following:
Lower you hands, meditate on your new journey and your new nature as a Wiccan. Let your feeling exit your body and enter inside the Goddess and the God. Raise your hands and say the following:
Seeing how this ritual is done during Imbolc or Litha, the next stage is for wine and cakes. You can use white bread and strawberry jam, as well as white wine.
Don’t forget to release the Gods and the elements and disband the magic circle.
