“What is the meaning of my name?” is something many of us wondered at some point in our life, whether we researched the origins of our given name or our parents explained their choice. Numerology brings an even more revealing way of discovering how the name can influence one’s personality and even determine a certain life path.

The lines below will try to explain you why discovering your name numerology can help you understand yourself better and also improve your lifestyle and show you the ways you can bring peace and accomplishment in your life.

Discover what is name numerology, which are the letter number associations that make numerology charts work and the exact steps on how to calculate your name number with an easy example.

Name numerology:

In numerology, every name has a certain vibration determined by the assignment of numbers to the letters in the name. The sound effect of a name produces certain patterns, expectations and meaning. These name numbers' meaning are an expression of a person's developed personality.

The first name is considered to determine one's personality and thought process while the surname indicates the heredity influence of family. The combination of the two reveals the meaning of the full name and this is the one to be considered for name meaning.

The numerology name number not only indicates how a person's life is in general but also what kind of people are attracted to. This kind of reading offers an insight on opportunities and threats that come in that person's life. You can find a comprehensive fact sheet for almost any name you wish on Name Echo a website where Eida Goodman combines numerology name meanings with other symbolism, to reveal each name's luck, personality and destiny.

 Alphabetic Systems:

There are many numerology systems that assign values to letters in the alphabet to obtain certain numerical vibrations. The original was created by the Greek mathematician Pythagoras, the system we will present below. The numerological science we know talk about has developed starting with the twentieth century and has since then rapidly increased in substance and methods.

How to calculate name number?

First write out your full name and match each letter to the corresponding numerical value you can find in the chart. Then add together each number to get your total name number. This total name number will probably have more than one digit so you need to add the digits of this number as many times necessary as to get a single digit.




JONATHAN means (1+6+5+1+2+8+1+5)=29 Example for Jonathan Doe:

DOE means (4+6+5)=15


4+4= 8

The name number for the example is 8.
