Hey everyone!

I'm working on a potion-crafting card game that is themed with the stereotypical witch theme. Ingredients include things like Bat Wings, Eye of Newt, and Snake Venom.

I'm looking for names for the recipes that people are looking to craft. There are 51 total recipes, and so far I have names like Liquid Luck, Bottled Beauty, Elixir of Life, Strength Serum, etc.

I have 18 names so far, but I'd love to hear some suggestions from you guys!

I've used this site before. There are a lot of name generators for all sorts of things there. There is one specifically for potions, plus one for drink names that might also give you what you want.

Here are the first ten the potions one generated for me.

Potion of Arcane Protection
Draught of Titanic Strength
Elixir of Beginnings
Philter of Enhanced Senses
Potion of Petrification
Draught of Slowing
Elixir of Water Walking
Elixir of Camouflage
Philter of Restriction
Vial of Steelskin

Love potion #8 was the first thing I thought of. The last attempt before they got it right.

And since you seem to be on an alliterative streak:

Tonic of Terror
Ampoule of Agility
Draught of Drowsiness
Tincture of Timidity
Pickled Persuasion
Solution of Supreme Solubility
Preparation of Particularly Potent Permanence
Oil of Obfuscation
Salve of Sanguine Salvation
Poultice of Poison protection
Pitcher of perpetual Pouring

Wow! What an awesome response! Thanks for the generator and all of the names. Feel free to keep contributing!

Originally the game only had 18 recipes, so it wasn't too hard. Since I've done some playtesting and reworking I've increased the number to 51, so your additions definitely help tremendously!

These were the ones I was working with before:

Sleeping Serum
Healing Draught
Truth Tonic
Bottled Beauty
Essence of Blight
Liquid Love
Bottled Blessing
Essense of Agony
Draught of Death
Fortgetfulness Formula
Potion of Protection
Elixir of Riches
Strength Serum
Elixir of Life
Liquid Lightning
Invisibility Potion
Transformation Tonic
