It’s Mystical! Your First Name Says it All
I discovered that a first name alone reveals character and personality by “reading” people at parties. With only a first name introduction, I applied the numerology system for an entire name to just the first name and feedback was instantaneous – the personality interpretation was accurate! That discovery led to my first mass market book, You Are Your First Name.
This numerology system assigns numbers to every letter in the alphabet. This is a crash course so I’ll keep it quick and simple. The letters and their basic number meanings follow:
1 A, J, S independence, originality, ambition, leadership and activity
2 B, K, T adaptability, receptiveness, cooperation and emotional sensitivity
3 C, L, U artistic talents, optimism, sociability, imagination and humor
4 D, M, V practicality, organization, economy, trust, endurance and loyalty
5 E, N, W cleverness, freedom loving, adventure, travel and mental curiosity
6 F, O, X domesticity, music, responsibility, idealism and burden-bearing
7 G, P, Y introspection, spirituality, refinement, research and perfectionism
8 H, Q, Z power, problem-solving, self-reliance, executive and athletic ability
9 I, R compassion, empathy, brotherhood, charity magnetism and service
A person’s point of view is indicated by the first letter in a first name. The letter tells us what types of people and experiences are attractive to them.
A, J, S independent, creative, active leaders
B, K, T cooperative, gentle, sensitive supporters
C, L, U entertaining, friendly, cheerful, artistic, expressive people
D, V, M traditional, respectable, dependable, hard-working folks
E, M, W unconventional, versatile, rapidly-moving, adventurous risk-takers
F, O, X emotionally responsive, home-loving, neighborly, responsible people
G, P, Y questioning, poised, aristocratic, authoritative, respected specialists
H, Q, Z comfortable with successful, self-reliant, discriminating, challenge-takers
I, R comfortable with open, humanitarian, generous, understanding romantics
The last letter of a first name indicates a person’s obsessive and compulsive tendencies and the habits formed in childhood for emotional self-protection. These are their challenges, the reasons why they go to extremes. Childhood emotional attitudes are the usual causes for making poor choices and not taking practical options. If habits can be made, they can be altered. Childhood habits may be changed when mistakes are recognized. It takes years to make a habit and to change a habit! By mid-to-later life, after repeated mistakes in judgement, most people slowly alter behavior and meet their emotional challenges.
A, J, S too controlling, stubborn and egocentric or too submissive
B, K, T too sensitive and self-effacing or too removed from emotional sensitivity
C, L, U too insecure socially or too extravagant with words
D, M, V too structured and are workaholics or too lazy, careless and impractical
E, N, W too changeable, impulsive and sensual or too cerebral and fear change
F, O, X too conscientious and protective or too meddlesome and smug
G, P, Y too skeptical, aloof and melancholy or too analytic, silent and peaceful
H, Q, Z too concerned about money and self-ambition or lack material ambitions
I, R too self-sacrificing, impractical, sentimental or too selfish & narrow-minded
Find the single number for the Natural Instincts, First Impression and Career Talents in a first name using the number chart below.
Write down the letters in a first name
Under the letters, write the number values for each of the letters in the name.
Add the total numbers of all the letters. Reduce that number by adding together the digits. Example: Jonathan = 29 so 2 + 9 = 11 reduce again 1 + 1 = 2
The single reduced number reveals the name’s means of self expression and talents.
The single reduced number of the total vowels in name reveals the name’s “soul urge” or the things that make a person comfortable. Vowels are believed to the “soul of the language.”
The single reduced number of the total consonants reveals a name’s “first impression.” Standing on an escalator or walking into a room, onlookers get a feeling or they “sense” who and what we are. Consonants reveal a name’s childhood visualization of the type of adult we wanted to be. As adults, the name sends out that youthful hope for the future.
