Well now. It seems my dear friend Gungaboy has rejoined the gay Pagan coven and needs to give himself a Pagan name. The best he’s come up with so far is “Shadowhawk,” which is so uninspired I feel we in the Xanga community must offer our help.
For those of you whispering “fag hag” with a snicker behind your hands, I HEARD THAT!
Now, where was I?
What makes a name Pagan, anyway? I guess it has to reflect nature somehow. The names also tend to evoke images of the stacks upon stacks of bad sci fi/fantasy novels one finds in New Agey stores. Tree-type names are popular. How about “Star Wood?” No? “Bark Stud?” Wait, I’ve got it- “Tree Top.”
Ok, maybe a flower-related name would be best. The obvious “Pansy” simply MUST be taken by someone already in the coven. “Dandy Lion?”
Forget flowers. Let’s visit the ocean. With a name like “SpongeBob SquarePants,” one would be destined to lead the coven, but I’m not sure Gungaboy is ready for that.
It doesn’t get much more “natural” than the insect world. Perhaps a “Queen Bee” would be welcome in the coven?
As a gardener, I’m partial to vegetable names. Appropriate choices might be: Cucumber, Zucchini, Carrot Stick, or even Corn Cob.
Fruits might be more popular names for this purpose. The obvious choice: “Apricock.”
(Even I’m wincing. Come on, people, help Gungaboy find a name!)
