Name Meaning Associated with Numbers
Name number meanings are determined by the assignment of numbers to letters of the alphabet.
Where birthday numerology determines personality characteristics of a person, name number meanings deal with areas of personal development.
In numerology, every name has a vibratory number. This is determined by translating the letters of the name into numbers, then adding these numbers and reducing them if necessary.
Name numbers are an expression of a person’s developed personality and a key to his/her ambition or achievements. The name number should be a compliment to his/her birth number.
I’ve provided a chart below to assign numbers to the letters of a name to assist you in determining your name number meaning.

Example for Figuring Your Total Name Number
George = 7+5+6+9+7+5=39
Washington = 5+1+1+8+9+5+7+2+6+5 = 49
Total = 88
Reduced to: 8+8 = 16
Reduced to: 1+6 = 7
The name number for George Washington is: Seven (7).
After you’ve determined your name number, go to the Meaning of Numbers page for characteristics related to each vibrational number.

It should be noted that name number meaning is merely another tool for self-discovery. Although it can be incredibly helpful and accurate, it should also be noted that our own lives, destinies, and futures are our own responsibilities. In other words: numbers cannot determine your fate, only YOU have control over that.
