How To Calculate Your Name Number

Numerology has been part of the mystic scene since before the Jewish Qaballah. Long before the modern zodiac system, long before the ideas of ruling planets and energy meridians, numerological values for names and words were the foremost divination method. Find out what your personal name number means!

Let’s find out your name number value, first. Start by writing your name out in full. You can write several versions of your name, if you like – middle name included or not, traditional and modernized spellings, and the like. Next separate the names into their individual letters. Each letter corresponds to a number from one to nine. Here’s the chart for the values:

A=1 B=2 C=3 D=4 E=5 F=6 G=7 H=8 I=9
J=1 K=2 L=3 M=4 N=5 O=6 P=7 Q=8 R=9
S=1 T=2 U=3 V=4 W=5 X=6 Y=7 Z=8

Add together the values for the numbers in your name until you have one value. Likely, your value will be multiple digits. Barring the numbers 11, 22, 33, and 44 (which are special values), add the digits of that number together until you reduce the value to a single digit. For example:

Steven Moffat = 1+2+5+4+5+5+4+6+6+6+1+2=47 (4+7) = 11 (Special Value)
Tom Bates = 2+6+4+2+1+2+5+1=23 (2+3) =  5

name number

Now that you have your name’s numerological value, you can determine what qualities are associated with that name. Here are some examples of words associated with each of the basic values:

1: Solitary, leader, initiative, starter, quick, rash, impulse.
2: Cooperation, team, partner, adapt, mediate, neutral, judge.
3: Vitality, artistic, expression, hot, excitement, freedom.
