Biblical, mythological, or literary names are always top contenders when naming a new babe in America. One need look no further than the annual list of top 100 names published by the Social Security Commission to know that’s true. But what if none of those options strike your fancy? Luckily, the baby name options for parents are nearly limitless, with one such recourse being the wide pool of Wiccan names. While words like Wiccan, Pagan or Druid may not seem familiar to some, for many people those words and the beliefs behind them represent a big part of their lives. It makes sense, then, that people who partake in those religions might want to honor their children using names from said practices.

Of course, “Paganism” is a bit of a broad term. For nearly all of recorded history, “pagan” was simply a word used to represent religions unfamiliar to others, typically Christians. Modern Paganism or Neopaganism has a slightly more narrow focus. In most cases, though, Pagans are much more attuned to nature. This, of course, applies to Wiccans, as well. As such, many names that are popular among modern Pagans are related to nature or space. From crystals to elements to Arthurian legend and space exploration, very little is off the table for expecting Pagan parents.

We especially love the earthy aspect of names chosen by Pagan and Wiccan parents. (Wiccan names, though, shouldn’t be confused with “witchy” names.) The name Gaia, typically for a girl, means, “Earth mother.” And the Welsh name, Gwydion means, “born of trees.” Lovely, right? Then, of course, there are the more obviously nature-inspired names, like Willow, River, or Leaf. For us, those names immediately conjure the sweet image of muddy, chunky baby feet. Could there be a better thought?

So, how do you choose a name, then? Well… these are some of our favorites.
