Is it possible that your name can predict your future life based on an ancient system called name numerology that is done by allocating numbers to each letter of the alphabet.
Each number is allocated to each letter of the alphabet as follows:
- 1 – A, J, S
- 2 – B, K, T
- 3 – C, L, U
- 4 – D, M, V
- 5 – E, N, W
- 6 – F, O, X
- 7 – G, P, Y
- 8 – H, Q, Z
- 9 – I, R
To work out the numerology of your name all you would need to do is work out which number is allocated to each letter of your first name. Then you add all those numbers together. Now if your total is a two-digit number you have to add those together until you get a single-digit number.
What is Chaldean Numerology?
This is considered to be the starting point and origin of numerology as we know it today. It is based on Vedic/Indian numerology and the belief that all things vibrate at a certain frequency and positive vibrations attract more positive vibrations, while negative or unbalanced vibrations attract more negative vibrations.
Chaldean numerology is also based on the belief that all living things have a predetermined destiny and that fate and destiny can not be avoided. What this means is that your legal name and date of birth frame your future and fate. This is great news if you have a positive outcome but if yours is negative what do you do? Well, some people have changed their legal name in order to attract positive vibrations and almost defeat destiny.

If you are wondering what is my name number? Here’s an example, if you were working out the numerology of the name Charlie, here are the numbers that are allocated to each letter.
- C – 3
- H – 8
- A – 1
- R – 9
- L – 3
- I – 9
- E – 5
Now you will add these all together like so 3+8+1+9+3+9+5= 38. And because this gives you a two-digit number you have to add 3+8=11, now 11 is one of the master numbers and we do not add these together to create a single digit. This means that the name numerology number for Charlie is 11.
The double-digit rule has a few exceptions and these are called master numbers. The numbers 11, 22, and 33 are believed to be so exceptional and embody the three stages of creation, envisioning, creating, and sharing.
- 11 is the visionary
- 22 is the planner
