Changing Your Name to Change Your Numerology! Learn How

There are several reasons why someone would change their name. However, you might want to rethink this if you are someone that follows numerology. Your name is part of the equation when it comes to reading your numerology.

Changing your name can affect your numerology for better or worse. Because your name is such a large part of the numerology reading, you don’t want to change your name lightly. This could be a legal name change or an informal name change. Either way, the reading will be different. 

We are going to take a look at why your name is so important in numerology. We will also explore what the numbers mean and what role marriage and divorce play.

It is also important to have an overall understanding of what numerology is if you are just starting out. At the end of this, you won’t be an expert but you will have clear information so you can decide whether or not you want to change your name.

Why Your Name is Important

When it comes to numerology, your name is greatly important. In fact, it is believed in numerology that your name is tied to your destiny. There is a destiny number in the numerology reading. This number is pulled entirely from your name.

What you do in life and how successful you are depends on what your parents named you and what name you ultimately go by. There are three things that go into the reading, two of which have to do with your name.

This is one of the reasons why naming a child is such a big deal in so many cultures. Not all cultures believe in or follow numerology, but many do believe that the name will guide destiny and take great care naming their children.

One of those aspects you can’t do anything about because it is your given name. The other, however, has to do with the name you choose to go by. This means that if your given name is Christopher and you go by Chris but want to start going by Reggie, then that one aspect changes.

Each Letter Carries Frequency

In addition to names carrying the destiny of the person, there is another reason why names are so important in numerology. Each letter of a name carries weight or a frequency.

Every letter in your name has a vibration that is only with your name and with you. Even if there is someone that has the same name, you have the energy and frequencies will be different because you are different people.

This is the absolute essence of who you are as a person. That is why it should not be a quick and easy decision to change your name.

When you change your name, it changes your energy, and it can change the very essence of who you are. It is true that changing your name could make you more successful or wealthy, but it could also make things worse.

Consider the change carefully and don’t pick a name easily; you might even consult the reader to find out what the name you chose would mean in numerology.

What the Numbers Mean

Numerology can seem vague and hard to wrap your mind around for some people. But once you have a basic understanding of the practice, it will get much easier.  To understand what the numbers mean, you need to know where they come from.

As we said, there are three factors that are used in a numerology reading, and two are derived from the name. However, the third one is derived from your birthdate. That means two of the factors can never change. The only one that can change is the name you go by.

Each of these means something. The number that you get from your birth date has to do with life’s timing as well as the direction of your life.

Your birth name number speaks more to who you are as a person. Your strengths, weaknesses, and even your essence are found by using your birth name.

The name you go by also has a number that is derived from it. This speaks more to your successes and overall quality of life.

But it isn’t as simple as it seems. Because each person is unique, the numbers that are produced from these factors can mean many different things.

That is why it isn’t a good idea to try to read your numerology by yourself. You should seek out someone who knows what they are doing.

What About Marriage and Divorce?

You may be wondering how marriage and divorce can change numerology. Since this does require a legal name change of your last name, will it change your reading?

The simple answer to this is yes; it will change your reading. Because this is a name change, it will change the frequency of your name and your overall essence.

But since this is a life change decision, there isn’t a negative consequence in your reading. You are showing how committed you are to your spouse if you change your name.

However, if you don’t feel in alignment with changing your name, then don’t; this is the kind of name change that should feel right for you. The same with a divorce.

Whether or not you choose to keep your ex’s name or go back to your given name is completely up to you. It will change your reading but doing what feels right for you is more important.

If you have any misgivings about a name change, you can go see a professional to seek advice.

So what is numerology? Numerology is a basic understanding of how the universe is structured. Within the structure is the basic foundation and that foundation is numbers.
