How to Calculate Your Name Number?

Calculating the Destiny Number depends on which numerology system you choose to use. There are three systems in common use at this time: Pythagorean, Gematria, and Chaldean. While each one assigns number values to letters, they vary with some letters. For example, A is 1 in all systems. Q is 8 in the Pythagorean system, 4 in the Gematria system, and 1 in the Chaldean system.

Therefore, the Destiny number of a man named Quincy would add up from the following numbers:

8 3 9 5 3 7 = 35 = 8


4 6 5 1 3 2 = 21 = 3


1 6 1 5 3 1 = 17 = 8

As it happens, the Pythagorean and Chaldean Destiny is 8, while the Gematria Destiny is 3.

What is the Destiny Number

The single digit number of your name reveals the energy you attract from others and the world. Knowing your Destiny Number helps you understand why people want you to play a certain role in life.

The Destiny number works in concert with the Life Path Number. When combined with the Life Path number you get the Soul Purpose Number.

Unlike the Life Path Number which drives the individual, the Destiny Number is the pulse of energy that turns people in their direction for a specific reason, related to the number meaning of that Destiny.

The Number 6 as Your Destiny

These are the people others look to for specific help in any situation, regularly or in a crisis. Being seen as a problem-solver and inventor is their Destiny. For some individuals this will be a welcome role, for others a constant source of irritation. Nonetheless, service will be the recurring theme.

The Number 6 and Career

The challenge for Destiny 6 individuals is how to learn to provide service and support without being a doormat or taken advantage of. Destiny 6 people activate the people working with them to ask for help and seek support. Co-workers will turn to this person when they have a practical need at work and expect the Destiny 6 to jump in and help.

The Number 6 and Love

Destiny 6 people attract romantic partners trying to find someone who can either “fix them” or help them be the best version of themselves. The romance can be egalitarian (both fixers), complimentary (always trying to improve/suggesting improvements), or very frustrated (good as is/nagging for perfection). Regardless, the lesson of love is tied to the lesson of service.

Number 6 and Family

The parent or child that is a 6 will be viewed as the problem-solver and support person. It may not even be a conscious behavior on the part of other family members, they will simply look to the 6 as a the one that should help. This destiny works well if the individual wants to support others, but can be problematic if they simply want to limit the amount of help they offer because it does not feel natural to be the administrative assistant in life.

Number 6 and Health

There will be a constant pressure to provide practical solutions to health concerns from others. If a question about which medicine to take or health product to buy comes up around a Destiny 6, then everyone will turn to the 6 for the answer. It will not matter if the Destiny 6 individual is knowledgeable about the product and its use or not. If they are in the room when a “does this work” question comes up, people will naturally look towards them.

Other Numbers and Their Importance

You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Destiny Number. No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Destiny Number is a foundation number (along with the Life Path and Soul Purpose numbers).

Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States. Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number numerology, or the address of you home.

How to Use Numerology in Your Life

Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships. If the 3 is your Destiny Number, then realize that other people will sense you as a 3 and react to you accordingly. We are all pulsing with certain energy that acts on the world and causes the world to react.
