What’s In A Name?
What a Difference a Name Makes
When working out the Numerical Value of your name use different variations of it to see what Numerically works best for you. Each letter in the alphabet is linked to a certain number (See The Numerology Letter Box Above) and a lot of information can be sourced by working out the Numerical value of a name, country or street name. We can also work with the date of birth and even house name or number of the Querant to gain further insight into the influences at play.
For example – I was christened Vivien Margaret Dunne but I use the Irish version of my surname now and do not use my middle name, so I am Vivien Ni Dhuinn. Family members often refer to me as Vivers, and my partner sometimes calls me Viv. I could use the Irish version of my first name and call myself Beibhinn. If I was to work out the Numerical Value of all the above options I could find out which version of my name works best for me in life or in certain circumstances. Does the name I go by affect my personality? Would I be happier or luckier in life if I was to call myself Beibhinn? Does my name draw positive or negative attention to me?
Some people look into their name and go to professional Numerologists to determine if their name is working for them. If they find that their name is holding them back in life, or that using their middle name would be more advantageous, it is simple enough to change it. If you have being named Elizabeth at birth but everyone at home fondly called you Betty, you may discover that the vibrations of Elizabeth opens doors that Betty has to force her way through. You might find that Betty works better for you in another aspect of your life. Then again, it may be your middle name where all the power is stored, the middle name you never use. You might be Elizabeth, Clarissa, Joyce. After consulting with a Professional Numerologist and discussing various areas of your life and examining your goals and ambitions, you may discover that using Clarissa instead of Elizabeth will evoke remarkable changes in your life.
As mentioned above my name at birth was Vivien (named after Vivien Leigh), Margaret (my Paternal Grandmother’s name) and Dunne, my surname. However, I do have an extra name and that is my confirmation name of Cecilia. I chose that because of the song by Simon and Garfunkel which was obviously in the charts at the time. I have never used Cecilia but I think if I did, I would use it with the English version of my surname Dunne instead of Ní Dhuinn, the Irish Version. Cecilia Dunne sounds better than Cecilia Ní Dhuinn. It just doesn’t carry the same vibration does it?
My Father’s birth name was James Joseph Dunne. He never used the Joseph and preferred to use the abbreviated version of his First Name, Jim. In fact he was quite determined about this and hated being called James. When he had to spend long periods of time in hospital towards the end of his life, he had terrible conflict with the nursing staff who insisted upon calling him James even though he argued with them to call him Jim. I am not sure why he hated James so much. Maybe he connected it with bad times as a school boy or maybe he just didn’t like the name. It was a simple thing to ask of the nurses but they carried on calling him James right up until the day he died.
The Importance of Maiden Names
Many women who marry today, decide to hold onto their maiden names for any number of reasons. For me one of the main reasons other than retaining independence is that a person’s name holds a certain vibration which is composed of the sound of letters placed in a particular order. Over years and decades this vibration becomes a part of us and it forms part of our personality. Take that name away, or disturb it by adding or taking away letters, and the vibration changes. A name change can have a powerful effect on our personality and how we feel about ourself. Women for so many centuries were expected to hand over a very important part of their person and take on the vibration of another when they married. For some women it had a positive effect but for others the name change was akin to losing part of their identity. Read the rest of this entry
