So, in contrast to some names that are forgotten and nowadays very rarely used, there are some other names that are used every day, but with their inner magical meaning lost and forgotten.

One of such names is Amen.

Talmud explains that Amen is the abbreviation of El (God), Melech (King) and Neamon (Truth), meaning by saying this word a person certifies that his Creator is God and King and Truth. The use of Amen has been generally adopted in Christian worship as a concluding word for prayers and hymns and an expression of strong agreement. It is derived from a root that signifies “truth.” Therefore, anyone saying Amen confirms that what has just been said is “true, trustworthy and reliable.” It is also used with the same meaning in Islam and Judaism.

The Amen referring to Jesus Christ, the Son of God appears in Revelation 3:14. Amen was mentioned a few times as a name of God in Greek Magical Papyri. It should be spoken in the charm of Solomon that produces a trance (PGM IV1) and is one of the holy and precious names that rules over all the creatures (PMG XII, 1). Amen is mentioned as a God’s name by Agrippa in his third book of Occult Philosophy and also in Barett’s The Magus. Agrippa explains that it is extracted from the verse: “the Lord, the faithful King.”Amen is the title for Kether, but in cabala there are other names used for that purpose as well. According to William Gray, the author of Magical Ritual Methods, Amen is the Primal Parent signifying Mother.

Besides, Amen is also mentioned as a Gnostic angel. The Apocryphon of John mentions him as an angel who took part in Yaldabaoth’s decision to create Adam. Amen created the teeth. 

Amin is a written form of Amen. In many languages, people say Amin instead of Amen. Amin appears as a name of God in conjuration of Lucifer in Praxis Magica Faustiana.
