**According to numerology, your first name holds much more about you than you might think. Learn what the letters of your names say about you and your life in this article!**

## Do you really know your first name?

Who are you ? This is at the same time the simplest and most difficult question we can answer. They are most often answered by stating their first and last name. As for the more intimate scope of the question, we are continually looking for the answer, sometimes doubting ourselves that we will ever get it, so much so that we rush to astrology or personality tests. What if our simple first name reveals much more about ourselves than we thought? In any case, it is a track explored by numerology, a divinatory practice that has existed since Antiquity.

## Know the numbers of your life to know yourself

Carried in particular by Pythagoras, numerology is an ancestral practice of searching for meaning and self-realization. A numerology calculation can offer an analysis of the heredity that we carry through our names, since our birth. It thus offers indications on your character, your relationship with your parents and what is most important to you. Moreover, numerology also deals with the future, since it seeks the influence of the forces that guide our destiny. A calculation can thus deliver valuable advice to bring or return luck in your life.

Numerology is thus a knowledge that paradoxically combines mathematical knowledge with the study of the field that seems the most out of control: that of the future and the hazards of life. Indeed, if our contemporary societies radically separate what is hard science from what is esoteric knowledge, this was not the case in ancient societies. At the time of Pythagoras, any mathematician was also a philosopher, poet and thinker of the mysteries of our world.

## What numbers correspond to each letter?

Before any calculation, you will need to have the correspondence data between the letters of your first and last name and the numbers from 1 to 9. You can refer to the list below for each calculation that we offer in this article.

**Correspondence between letters and numbers:**

a, j, s, é, è, ê, ç 1

b, k, t, ö 2

c, l, u, ù, û 3

d, m, v 4

e, n, w, ê, î 5

f, o, x, ä, ô 6

g, p, y 7

h, q, z, u 8

i, r, to, â, ï 9

## The value of the first name

The most unavoidable numerology calculation around the letters of your name is to calculate what is called “the value of the first name”.

To calculate the number associated with a person’s first name, simply add the numbers corresponding to each letter, referring to the correspondences cited above. Once this result has been obtained, add the sum of each of the two digits of the number in front of you. For example, if your name is Clara, add c + l + a + r + a, i.e. 3+3+1+9+1 = 17. Then calculate that 1+7= 8. 8 is thus the number corresponding to the first name Clara. If the sum is less than 10, as for the first name Léa whose number is 5, it suffices to keep this number simple. It can also be taken as 05, i.e. 0+5=5.

We can’t wait to hear your result in the comments! You will find at the end of the article some indications on how each number directs your life.

## The hereditary number

Besides your first name, your last name also reveals many traits of your character. It is specifically about what your parents passed on to you. The hereditary number relates to a given that has passed through the generations in your family.

To find it, the calculation consists of adding the letters of our birth name. Thus, a person whose last name would be “DUPONT” would calculate his hereditary number as follows:

D = 4, U = 3, P = 7, O = 6, N = 5 and T = 2. We therefore calculate the sum of 4 + 3 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 2 = 27. Then, we calculate the sum of the two digits of the number obtained, i.e.: 2 + 7 = 9.

The hereditary number of a person called Dupont is therefore 9. If you are a married woman, you must use your maiden name to calculate your hereditary number.

## The expression number

The expression number is obtained by adding the two numbers obtained for heredity and the value of the first name. To go back to the previous example of Clara and Dupont, let’s admit a person who would be called Clara Dupont. Her expression number would therefore correspond to the sum of the number associated with Clara and the number associated with Dupont, i.e. 9 + 8 = 17. We then obtain 1+7 = 8. Clara Dupont’s expression number is 8.

## The intimate number

The intimate number, also called spiritual momentum, is the symbol of our deepest and most unshakeable instinct. It is about a desire buried within us. It provides information on our deep intuition, which the influence of the outside world sometimes tends to attenuate.

The intimate number consists of calculating the sum of the vowels of your first and last name.

To take Clara Dupont’s example, her intimate number would be the sum of A + A + U + O, i.e. 1 + 1 + 3 + 6 = 11. We then add the sum of each digit of the number obtained, i.e. 1+1 =2. The intimate number of Clara Dupont is therefore number 2.
