Heredity Number of Your Last Name in Numerology

How to Calculate Your Heredity Numbers and Their Meanings

The Heredity Numbers in your personal numerology is the total of your father’s last name and mother’s last name reduced to single digits.

Essentially, you inherit numbers from your parents.  Most often, the father’s surname is the one that dominates and is known out in the world.  The mother’s surname often becomes her middle name after marriage, when she assumes the surname of her husband.


Pythagorean calculation method

Let’s look at the last names of the parents of Diana, Princess of Wales.  Her father’s last name was Spencer (John) and her mother’s last name was Kydd (Frances).  So, her heredity numbers were:

SPENCER
1755359358
KYDD
2744178

As you can see, Diana inherited the number 8 from both parents, which is the number for leadership and power.
