    While in general I agree with this I can't help but wonder. Is it not also part of the reason so many insist that paganism as a whole is just teen's acting out and rebelling thus making it a fad vice a legitimate pathway. One of the first faces of paganism seems to be that of the Teen who finds Wicca and goes looking to become one of the charmed ones.
    That's going to happen with anything that less mainstream that relies on faith. Well, that and the fact that many of the most vocal are rebellious teens and a lot of us discovered we could decide on our own what to believe at that age. I was 16 when I left the church. I was 20 when I did a self dedication as a pagan. I was pretty flaky at that point in retrospect but I had to go through all that to end up here. So foolish as it may have seemed at the time, I have no regrets.

    I hope the OP gets to that point someday too.

    Guys what if the Merlyn they said was not the one from legends...? But rather a guy named Merlyn lol...could this be possible and just be a confusion? Whos to say there was only the one from legends, there could of been a guy with that name and when told to this fine member the divination got confused by accident. At times this can happen.

    While that is always a possibility i'd think it unlikely. Figure it'd be equal to someone claiming they are a descendant from Cleopatra, by name usage you'll automatically jump to the conclusion its Cleopatra VII because of cultural and historical symbology. The fact there were 6 other Cleopatra's in Egypt doesn't matter the strength from the name comes from Cleopatra VII and her association to Julius Ceasar and Marc Anthony.

    From a reader, seerer or oracle perspective such a mistake would be unthinkable. One would think if there was even a remote possibility of there reading being incorrect that would be pushed more than what the actual reading was. However, I still think it highly unlikely such a determination was arrived at via a reading of ones aura. It seems far more likely name dropping, and names that would mean something to the person hearing them in my opinion. The sort of stuff one would expect to find at a carnival with their tarot readers or other divination offerings.

    My eldest brother's best man at his wedding was called Merlyn. Both Merlyn, Merlin and Merddyn are very common first names where I live. And down the road is a place called Merlin's Bridge!
