Written by Anjala Farahath  • 

What’s in a name, you might ask, just like Shakespeare did, but did you know that your name could reveal a lot about your personality? While palmistry and astrology are popular sciences that let us in on divine prophecies and prognostication, the not-so-distant cousin of this branch of science, numerology equips us with the skill to decode the mystery behind the person that you are. To be precise, the first letter of your name holds the key to your persona and temperament. The symbolism of the first alphabet that your name carries has always been significant. This isn’t something that we’re making up owing to boredom. According to numerology, every letter of your name carries a numerical value and each of these numbers is associated with certain attitudes, vibes, energies, and qualities (1). So, without further ado, let’s find out what the initials of our name tag reveal about us:

Like we said earlier, each alphabet is awarded a certain numeric value. Are you curious to know what the numeric value of your name is? Here’s the value for each alphabet as per numerology:

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

If that look’s like a Gordian knot to you, you don’t have to scratch your head. Here’s how you calculate the numeric value of your name. Suppose your name is Anjala (well, that’s my name too, so same pinch!), A=1, N=5, J=1, A=1, L=3, A=1. That sums up to 1+5+1+1+3+1= 12. Now, since it equals a double-digit, we add the two digits, i.e, 1+2=3. So my moniker number is 3. What’s yours? Now that we know how our names hold numeric value and that the first letter of our name unravels something interesting about our turn of mind, we can choose our names wisely (maybe for our kids).
