Vedic name numerology reveals more insight about our personalities, behaviors, social life and marriage. It is especially important for representatives of such professions in which the public name matters (for example, politicians, artists, scientists).
Your name number is the most flexible number in Vedic astrology because this number can be changed by changing the name itself. By changing the name consciously people can choose what side of their personality they want other people to see.
Which Name To Analyze?
Often we are called by different names. Usually, family members and friends call us by our first names. At work, our co-workers can call us by our last name. Our ID contains the full name. On social media, we can use a short form of our name or even replace it with a different name. So which name should we analyze from a numerological perspective in order to get accurate information about our personality?
The thing is that we usually reveal different qualities in our interaction with different groups of people. Our behavior at home is completely different from our behavior at work or when we are around people we barely know. Usually at home we feel more relaxed and at work we are more focused. We usually think twice before we actually say something to, lets say, our boss. But in family environment we can be completely ourselves and we usually don’t control our speech.
We, ourselves, choose which side of ourselves we reveal to the world. And each of our names contains a certain numerological code that contains information about a certain “face” we show to the people that call us by this name.
Our first, middle and last names contain different numerological codes. By paying attention to which of these names people choose to call you by (or you choose to call people by) you can find out which side of you they’re most focused on in you (or you’re in them).
The first name tells about the character of the individual, innate talents and abilities, as well as temperament and energy. By analyzing the first name from name numerology perspective you can find out what planet determines a person’s energy, individuality, talents, temperament, and abilities.
Your middle name contains information about your basic potential. It also shows the qualities instilled in the process of education, transformed by the influence of personal characteristics of the individual. By analyzing the middle name from a numerology perspective you can find out what planet is responsible for your basic potential and your individual characteristics.
The last name of a person is very important from a karmic perspective. By analyzing the last name you can find out “family” traits and talents that are inherited over generations. Moreover, you can see what planet influences ancestral karma and what karmic lessons this family needs to learn.
The most important and significant number in name numerology is the number of a person’s full name.
But keep in mind that the name number in different situations can be also different which affects how differently people can see you.
Also, you have to remember that a woman’s marriage is often accompanied by a change of the last name. It changes her life and karma, and not always these changes are positive.
For the name numerology analysis, most people use their “public names”, under which they are known to most people. Usually, a public name is a first and last name.
Also we need to pay attention to the first letter of our name. The first letter of your public name has the greatest impact on you.
