There are many different systems used for determining the deeper meaning behind the written word. The most commonly used today in the West is a system fathered by Pythagoras, which has evolved into the form of modern numerology. Based on the alphabet, the tone or vibration of each letter is assigned a numerical value. Adding together the values you can analyze the words and names to find symbolic meaning. The Name Number is interesting to many, and can reveal a lot of information about your expressive self, or outer nature, the personality. Name numbers can also be compared for compatibility in relationships as well.
To find your name number use your complete name as written on your birth certificate. Find the correlative number for each letter in the full name. Add the numbers together. Usually you will reduce if number is larger than one digit. Some numbers, called Master numbers are not reduced. Numbers eleven, twenty-two, and thirty-three are thought to have special vibrations and are considered the Master Numbers.
