The Nomen Mysticum is the secret name that a member of a mystical secret society is given once they are considered a worthy and confirmed member of a specific mystical order.


Usually the secret name is not given to the neophyte directly, but only after the completion of initiation.

The connection between the initiation and the presentation of a secret name is considered a rite of passage by most esoteric orders. It is understood that this process represents the mystery of rebirth (or birth - death - rebirth).
