Name Numerology

In numerology, your identity is made up of very specific basic elements required for the numerological interpretation of your personality and your future. These basic elements of numerology are your first and last names, and your date of birth.

Numerology assumes that your first and last names can be transcribed as a series of numbers. Each letter in the alphabet is associated with a number between 1 and 9 (see table below).

Numerology value of your first name

In numerology, your first name represents an important part of your identity because each first name has a specific meaning. If you do not know the meaning of yours, find it and soak in its meaning as it can help you in everyday life.

Your first name psychologically imbues you with its merits, but you also receive its flaws. This is why it is important to know what it means.


Receiving a first name is never innocent. It can hold the memory of someone dearly departed, it can be chosen for its etymological value, or for other reasons more personal to the person who chose it for you.

This is why it is important to know why you have been given that name, because this choice can affect: the way you were raised, the values you have been taught, your vision for your life, and your behavior when confronted with anything that happens in your life.

Numerology value of your last name

Your last name also has an importance on your behavior, because you were born at a given time in a specific family, social, and cultural environment.

These indications about your family name can also help you know why you are in a specific state of mind, why you behave this way or that, and why you have certain flaws or merits.

Your last name thus imbues you with a whole set of values, and it is important to know about them in order to learn how to express some of your merits, or resist some of the flaws that will be unveiled through the analysis of your personal numerological data: your first and last names, and your date of birth!

Transcribe your name into numbers

Numerology letters and numbers

You just need to transcribe your first and last name into numbers and add them together, leading to a numerological interpretation. This operation is called a numerological reduction.

It should be noted that when one of your names is hyphenated, you should add all the letters from all the elements that make up your name.

A married person should use their birth name instead of the name of their spouse if they changed it after the wedding because using their spouse name would falsely alter numerological interpretations of their numerological profile.

Example of a numerology name calculation

So, in order to determine the numerological profile of a woman called Mrs. Isabella

Formal (born Isabella Smith), you shall use the name Smith for the numerological transcription of their last name.

Her first and last names can be transcribed as follows, according to the table for a numerological transcription of letters into numbers.


I = 9

S = 1

A = 1

B = 2

E = 5

L = 3

L = 3

E = 1

So, her first name can be transcribed into these numbers: 9, 1, 1, 2, 5, 3, 3, 1

Surname: SMITH

S = 1

M = 4

I = 9

T = 2

H = 8

So, her last name can be transcribed into these numbers: 1, 4, 9, 2, 8

1st exercise: calculate your first and last names

Use this method with your first and last names:

Your first name: ______________________________________________________

Its transcription into numbers: _________________________________________

Your last name: ______________________________________________________

Its transcription into numbers: _________________________________________

Numerology: a certain number … of numbers!

You then use combinations of this numerological data to calculate several numbers that will define a person’s numerological profile.

1- The active number

2- The heredity number

3- The soul urge number

4- The personality number

5- The expression number

These various numbers can then be analyzed through a numerological frame of reference.

This lets you know the personality of the person in question, and to know what they should do in order to improve their living conditions overall, or in a specific area (money, love, work…) or to achieve a specific goal.

Number meanings – from 1 to 9, 11 and 22

Once the numerological numbers have been determined, you must go on with your analysis, according to a numerological frame of reference.

The one below will give you the numerological meaning of the numbers from 1 to 9, and the two master numbers 11 and 22.

0 This number is the void. It is only used to calculate numerological sums and is never given any numerological interpretation.

1 This number symbolizes unity, synthesis, and creative energy. It represents both God and human beings.

2 This number represents duality. Born from the number 1 through 1 + 1. The number 2 has a creative power, without the same mystical power as the number 1. It is a symbol of feminine energy, and both oppose and complement the number 1.

3 This number is the sum of 1 and 2. It symbolizes their balance within the trinity. It can be found in several traditions, like the Christian Trinity (the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost), or like Hinduism: Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. 3 symbolizes family.

4 This number symbolizes the material world represented by the square, but without leaving the spiritual sphere. Accordingly, the sum of the first four numbers equals 1 (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10 = 1).

5 This number represents change. Its middle position at the center of the nine numbers symbolizes change, mobility, and expansion.

6 This number is a symbol of unions and oppositions. It is connected to three and represents a double trinity. As such, it symbolizes harmony that has grown stronger.

7 This number is a sacred spiritual number, the number of perfection and of the higher realms. Through this number, mind is stronger than matter. It symbolizes wisdom.

8 This number represents duality, like the number 2. Either as the domination of the spiritual over matter in its positive aspects, or destruction through its negative aspects. It symbolizes money and material power.

9 This number represents being open to the outside world, kindness, selflessness,
generosity, and altruism. It is the only number that is always reduced to itself when you multiply it with any other numerological number! 1 X 9, 2 X 9 (1 + 8 = 9), 3 X 9 (2 + 7 = 9), … 9 X 9 (8 + 1 = 9)! It is a symbol of earthly accomplishments and spiritual fulfillment. It is the end of a cycle, representing a cleansing stage before moving on to a higher cycle.

There are also 2 numerological numbers called master numbers: 11 and 22. Some also add 33, but here we will only focus on the first two in order to make it easier for your interpretations (it is quite complex enough) for the numbers on the numerological table!

11 This is the first master number. It represents a kind of evolution that already
started before, with an extremely powerful vibration if it is found in the sum of the letters of someone’s first or last name. It indicates both a great strength of character, and a harder time fitting in any group, resulting in some
tensions in their relationships with other people.

22 This is the second master number, it means that the person is gifted with great inner radiance and mighty creative energy. This energy is so strong that it can be hard to control sometimes. This can trigger psychic problems for anyone unable to master it.
