    The solution ("your name") is clearly stated and explained in the movie. – Walt Jun 17 '16 at 7:15
  • yeah why would Valak want Lorraine to know her name unless she wanted her to find her and cast her back to hell – Tomas VanDyke Apr 5 '17 at 16:36
  • I thought the answer was "your shadow", although I wasn't able to correlate its meaning to the film. – H.E. Pennypacker Apr 21 '17 at 23:44

The Riddle was:

I am given and I am taken.
I was there at your first breath,
But you didn't ask for me.
But I will follow you till your death.

The Answer was name. That is what was needed for them to beat the demon, they needed to know the demons name which will give them power over him.

I am given and I am taken.
I was there at your first breath,
But you didn't ask for me.
But I will follow you till your death.

Many say the answer is "name".

However I prefer "Faith".

They knew the mechanic of the demon's name before the meeting with Bill and as a result were seeking its name. I feel Bill eludes to Lorraine's faith which resides in her Bible where she also finds the name of the demon.
