Merwyn Fae Stormwarden
A question: How many of my LJ friends are Wiccan/pagan?|
I've learned a bit about it here and there throughout my life, but now I am very seriously considering the Wiccan path as one of my own. I am looking for support and information. I'm on my own and thristy for knowledge.
The post that was up before was deleted because it contained my chosen pagan name: Merwyn Fae Nyxx with no explanation. Now that I have opened up a little bit more, do you think it fits me? Merwyn was chosen because it is derived from "Merlin", someone I have always looked up to, and sounds very mermaidish. Fae, well that one seems a bit obvious, but most who know me consider me quite whimsical, and fantasy has always played a part in my life; if I choose this path I would like it to follow along as well. Nyxx (I added the extra x to honor Mynxx) was the goddess and is the personification of night; she was one of the most ancient goddesses. Even Zeus was in awe of her, and feared doing anything that would displease her. I feel it represents more of my dark and serious (sometimes brooding) side. Also, Nyx was a daughter of Chaos (and so a sister of Gaia). With her brother Erebus Darkness she bore: Hemera Air, Aether Light, Moros Destiny, Thanatos Death, Hypnos Sleep, Morpheus Dreams, The Fates, The Keres, Eris, Momus Ridicule, Oizys Distress, Apate Deceit, Care, and Nemesis. Her realm was in the far West beyond the land of Atlas. Some legends also link her to the sea.
I'm a sponge ready to soak up knowledge- pour your sugar on me.
