For the first time, I'm working with a circle of people to learn and to celebrate. As I've been solo for years, I find myself in a weird position when it comes to my craft name. I've NEVER shared it with anyone, believing that there is power in a name. Now, however, it is expected that I share my craft name during rituals and workings, which I suppose makes sense.

Now, I know that there are a dozen different names that a person can have - legal name, public craft name, private craft name, working name, etc. - but I have no idea which name is best used in which realms of my life. Obviously, my legal name is used in my regular, mundane life, but what about craft names? What is commonly used where? How does one protect one's craft name while still using it with others to do work?

I don't really know if I would call it a "craft name" as more as an in between name.  I'm still so new to this, but I wanted something to make it separate from every day.  "Estrella" just means of the stars and I've always been fascinated by space and everything that is above me, and I have the God and Goddess to thank for it.  I just figured it was fitting for what I needed.  I'm open to change it or add another as time goes on.
