How do you pronounce your necromancer name?
Is it an ancient word that is difficult to say, or are the syllables easy for English speakers to wrap their tongues around?
Regardless of whether your necromancer name has five letters in one language and thirteen others from another culture, there’s no doubt that a lot of thought went into naming us. What follows are 13 quotes on necromancer names that will warm your soul – and might even help with pronunciation.
Sadie xx-xx: “Your necromaner’s name belongs to you alone; don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.”
Amber Scott (née Kelley): “I wanted my daughter to have a strong female necromancer name.”
Karen: “I went with the necromaner’s name my dad had given me, and it fit right in there when I got into magic. And then I married a guy whose last name sounded good with mine, so that’s how Karen Scott became Karen Petrova.”
John Dee (née Arthur): “What is your necromancer’s name? It sounds like something from Dungeons & Dragons to me.”
Necromancers are often asked for their names; some people will see this as an attempt at intimidation or even mockery. Everyone has the right to choose their own identity, which includes what they want their friends and family members to call them – not just their necromancer name.
Anecromancers often choose a necromancer’s name that reflects who they are and what they do, or one that was chosen for them by their mentor when they became an apprentice. Necromaners will also take on the last names of apprenticeship as part of their new identity if it is not already in use (e.g., “Necro-Petrov” could become “Karen Petrova”). Many people find comfort in taking on this new identity because it helps them to honor both halves of themselves – the living and the dead.”
If you’re feeling creative, go ahead and invent your own! No matter which type of person you are – be yourself!”
