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

Why Your Name is Important
When it comes to numerology, your name is significant. 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 your success depends on what your parents named you and what name you ultimately go by. Three things 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 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 person’s destiny, there is another reason why names are so important in numerology. Each letter of a name has weight or frequency.
Every letter in your name vibrates only with your name and with you. Even if someone has the same name, your energy and frequencies will differ because you are different.
This is the absolute essence of who you are as a person. That is why changing your name should not be a quick and easy decision.
When you change your name, it changes your energy, and it can change the very essence of who you are. Changing your name could make you more successful or wealthy, but it could also worsen things.
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
For some people, numerology can seem vague and hard to wrap your mind around. But once you have a basic understanding of the practice, it will get much easier. To understand the numbers, you need to know where they come from.
As we said, three factors 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 you get from your birth date depends on life’s timing and direction.
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 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 produced from these factors can mean many different things.
That is why trying to read your numerology by yourself isn’t a good idea. 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 your name’s frequency and overall essence.
But since this is a life change decision, your reading has no adverse consequences. You show your commitment to your spouse if you change your name.
However, if you don’t align 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 entirely 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 see a professional to seek advice.
