This is (obviously) for those who aren't on a path previously named. Wink I'm just curious, was there anything that really led you to name your path in the first place?




I am currently in the process of "naming " what path I seem to be on (as well as flesh out my beliefs). I currently call my self a eclectic polytheist with recon tendencies because though I thought about going the recon route, my two patrons are from two different areas and I don't know how well that would go over.   Huh

I hope that's understandable...I'm on vicodin right now due to a gall bladder attack so I apologize if I've not made sense.   Cheesy

Very understandable, and very logical. Wink

Makes sense to me - which may not prove anything Wink
Your Celtic would seem to be similar to my Celtic condiments Smiley

This is (obviously) for those who aren't on a path previously named. Wink I'm just curious, was there anything that really led you to name your path in the first place? Is there a deep meaning behind the name, or was it just what sounded nice at the time? Probably more importantly, how long did it take for you to name your path? Did you 'angst' over the name, wanting it to be just right, or did it just come to you?

I guess I can answer my own question now, thanks to a flash of thought earlier today.

I've named my path Seido no Gijo Hei, which is (roughly) Japanese for "Path of Duty of the Guard of Honor" or "Righteous Path of the Guard of Honor." the first is closer to what I wanted conveyed though. I'm using Japanese just because I love the language, and it'd be way to wordy in English. Tongue

Thankfully, there was very little angst involved beyond the general angst of "It makes no sense to not have a name!"

That's a relief!

It very well may be but I do know I'm finding myself leaning more and more towards the Celtic right now. It's kind of hard to really get into the gardenning bit when your dirt is clay and it's either soggy mud in the winter/early spring or cement in late spring/summer.  Cheesy

Soon tho, I'm hoping!

That's good to know!  At least something still functions when I'm drugged even if the fingers don't!  Cheesy

Actually, Juni named my path for me.   Cheesy

I was sort of floundering around with something like Celtic Recon Lite, or Moderate CR, or something like that.  I wasn't angsting about it -- the label really wasn't as important to me as the content.

Then, in some thread or other, we got into a conversation about paths and names.  And I said something about how my path was CR-ish, but with a clear and definite focus on Brighid, to the exclusion of other deities.  I mumbled something about needing a name like Brighidine, and Juni suggested the Irish form, "Brighideach".

It felt right, so that was that.
