Typically the use of numerology involves analysing your date of birth (names change; dates don't).  However, there are certain times when you may want to work out names, for instance naming your child.  Name numerology will also help you to work out the significance of your own name and what it means for you.

To the right is a grid for you to use which shows the letters that each number is equivalent to.  Below I have listed what each name number means but first lets begin with how you work out your name number.  Here I will use model Elle MacPherson, and you will see that I have placed the number that relates to each letter directly under it.  As with number numerology, we always aim to reduce the total sum down to a single figure (unless it is a master number 11, 22, 33 or 44 which are not reduced).

E  L  L  E
5  3  3  5 = 16.  1 + 6 = 7.

M  A  C  P  H  E  R  S  O  N
4  1   3   7  8  5   9   1  6  5 = 49.  4 + 9 = 13.  1 + 3 = 4.

In this example Elle's first name adds up to a 7 and her surname MacPherson's adds up to a 4 (see meanings below).  When we add her full name Elle MacPherson together we get an 11 (Elle = 7 + MacPherson = 4).  A first name number 7 shows Elle is intelligent and creative.  When she adds her surname which adds up to 4 it shows she is also practical and committed.  Finally when we add her full name together we get the number 11 and this shows that Elle MacPherson is independent & focused.  When you combine all these factors together you can see why Elle is so successful as a business woman and entrepreneur.

Here's a list of what each name number means:

One - active, direct, driven, impulsive, impatient, competitive
Two - nurturing, emotional, caring, sensitive, giving
Three - talkative, fun, social, inquisitive, quick-witted
Four - practical, serious, committed, reliable, fixed
Five - optimistic, restless, generous, passionate, good-humored
Six - well-balanced, harmonious, caring, loving, gentle
Seven - intelligent, creative, disruptive, impatient, unique
Eight - intense, powerful, ambitious, controlling, tenacious
Nine - intuitive, passive, secretive, insightful, elusive
Eleven - independent, focused, motivated, pushy
Twenty Two - compassionate, committed, easily influenced
Thirty Three - highly expressive, spiritual, thoughtful, entertaining
Forty Four - hardworking, stubborn, inflexible, honest
