Actually it was 8 pups born. One of the 3 given away was the one killed by a hawk.

All 5 are celtic names, yes. Nora was originally named after her momma Inori but we found out that Nora was a celtic name (surprised us lol)

Galena means calm
Britta means strong, freckled, speckled, spotted
Kellan means strong
Caellum means warrior

I forgot what Nora meant.

@Kellie - That's understandable, "witch" is still in a sort of "claiming" phase, but it's been used proudly by many magic users for the past 80+ years. There's nothing wrong with the word, but mainstream society seems to be uncomfortable with it still. It'll come around eventually, I'm sure.

I think you might be using the word "Wicca" as a sort of comfort thing - just a guess. :)

If I may ask - do you practice magic? Do you want to? I ask because you honestly don't have to in order to be pagan - that's something many don't seem to know. Thought I'd just put that out there.

@Beldair - 9 pups?! Wow, I was in shock when my dog produced 6 in spring. Lol We found homes for all but 1 who was killed by a wild pig. We wanted to keep that particular one, too. :(

Very cool names. Are they all Celtic names or are some of them from different languages? The names Kellen and Nora SRW the two I'm asking about specifically.

Bryn, I am comfortable with the word pagan. The word witch I honestly do not know.

Same litter bryn.

We gave away 3 but 1 was killed by a hawk. The other 5 we kept.

They are named: Galena, Britta, Caellum, Kellen, and Nora.

They are now 5 months old.

The words themselves, love. Are you uncomfortable calling yourself a witch or a pagan? Wiccans are both witches and pagans, but "Wiccan" isn't a synonym for "pagan" and "witch".
Witches practice magic - no matter what kind of magic (hoodoo, Stregheria, Santeria, etc) those listed are different from Wicca, but they're all witchcraft.
Pagans worship pre-Christian deities of any culture. Wiccans are pagans, but a Hellenist isn't a Wiccan. Heathens, druids, Roman pagans, etc - all pagan, but none are Wiccan.

I want to thank all who gave me advice. I appreciate your honesty. I am new and am going to read all I can before I decide what my practice will be.

Comment by Kellie Cuillean Sylvertree on August 22, 2014 at 5:40am

Bryn, why would you ask me if pagan and witch make me uncomfortable? I do not understand.

Comment by Bryn Judysdottir on August 22, 2014 at 12:02am
Sorry for the delay - extremely busy day.
Sounds good. :) Is this a different litter than before, or the same ones?
