Name Number

Use the birth name–the name given a person at birth–to determine the Name Number (also known as the Expression Number), which reveals the overall personality. To calculate the name number, find the number that corresponds to each letter in the name in the chart below, add the numerals up, and then “reduce” the final number to a single digit, as you did with the birth path number, above.

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

Example:

Name given at birth: Mary Lynn Smith.

Find each letter and its corresponding numeral in the chart above, and then add these digits together: 4+1+9+7+3+7+5+5+1+4+9+2+8 = 65

Reduce by adding the sum’s digits together, and then further reduce to come to a single digit, if necessary: 65 = 6+5 = 11

11 = 1+1 = 2

In this example, the Name Number is 2, representing the personality type.
