Same thing--witch.  And "so called" implies there's some illegitimacy, which confuses me.

As Brina said the term "witch" is gender-neutral in the Wiccan religion. The term "warlock" isn't used much because the word used to me "traitor."

I can't call myself wiccan because I'm not, I like the term witch, but that too feminine.Warlock sound too World of warcraft, and wizard just reminds me of Harry Potter. I like the term 'worker' (meaning magic users)

I just call my self a wiccan. I feel that more people can understand this term without causing too much confusion.

I simply go by Witch. Although I also accept Wizard. Witch is a title that either gender can have.

I don't know.  Outside of fantasy fiction, the first thing that word brings to my mind is "Grand Wizard."
