Cool witch names for girls

Now that you've had a play, how can you come up with a wonderful witch name that feels right for you... or perhaps for a baby girl or future witch in the making, if she chooses such a path?

Nature:

Witches are in tune with their souls, bodies and minds. They're in tune with nature - the trees and flowers, the herbs, the passing of the seasons, the light of the noon sun and the shadow of a new moon. Consider seeking names relating to animals, trees and flowers, or herbs both common and hard-to-find. For example, sorrel grows by hedges in the wild and could be a wonderful witch name for a girl. Or Luna, which is latin for moon. If you name a girl after herbs and plants, you may want to research their magical properties and benefits, too.

Witches in myth and legend:

You may be seeking a name which has a pedigree. You've got Morgan La Fey, the enchantress from the Arthurian legends. There's Queen Mab of faery poem fame, the fairy queen of English folklore who's described as the fairies' midwife in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. You could also look to the Greek and Roman classics for inspiration, and find names like Ariadne or Hecate to suit your needs. Celtic names like Ceridwen (an echantress from Welsh medieval legend who kept the cauldron of poetic inspiration) might also work for you.

Witches in literature and fiction:

No-one will ever forget the glory of Granny Esmerelda Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg or Magrat Garlick from the Discworld novels. The Harry Potter series gave us the marvellous Hermione, Luna Lovegood and Bellatrix Lestrange. Fantasy epics like the Belgariad have brought us Polgara. If you're looking for inspiration for creating your own fictional witch, it is of course important to find your own name. However, if you're looking for witch names for baby girls, fiction offers so many possibilities to draw on!
