The arithmancy of our birth names is the process in numerology of assigning a numeric calculation value to each letter of the alphabet. Our birth certificate names are as important as our birth dates. We decode the specific meanings within our names through the dynamic process of arithmancy.

Some people think that because our birth dates and birth names are chosen for us—as in planned cesarean births and the names that generally our parents settle on—there may not be anything sacred about these them, but the ancients believe that nothing is random.

Meaning of the Consonants in Our Names

The personality or expression number is the arithmancy of the consonants in one’s birth certificate name. Our expressions define how we bring the heart’s desire into manifestation in the material world. The vowels maintain the fluidity of our names, and the consonants are the forms by which the vowels are expressed.

The personalities are like the clothes we wear; they protect us, define us, or both. Personas are complements to the inner aspects of our selves. They portray our personal style and behaviors and how we imagine and present ourselves to the world on both the conscious and the unconscious levels.

Our expressions describe learned behaviors and how we use them to express our essential selves. Our personas are built from experience, which is feedback the universe gives us about our choices, feelings, thoughts, words, and actions. This is especially important in the analysis of how present we are in the process of creating our destinies.

Our heart’s desire numbers are the essences of our true selves, and our personality numbers are the frequencies at which we choose the world to view us. These are our full expressions of being humans in the physical form. They are how we protect, express, and manifest our .

Once we understand the essences of these frequencies, we appreciate the magic and source of power used to influence the outside world and evaluate the gifts and talents used when expressing our creativity.

The personality or expression number is the initial vibration that people, animals, environments, plants, and spirits pick up from us organically. It is the base energy they use to psychically tell whether we are authentic about who we are, what we are doing, and our true intentions. If we are not in alignment with these frequencies, they will sense it, and something will just feel off.

These are our energetic personality blueprints, and when we are in integrity with the vibrations we emit, our auras strengthen, expand, and become brighter. People, animals, and the environment around us will feel invited, interested, and attracted. They will trust, feel safe around, and open up to us naturally.


The Expression number is the sum total of the consonants in a name. Reduce the total to a single digit unless it is a Master Number. Use the arithmancy conversion chart below. The letter Y is used as a consonant except when it is the first letter in a person’s first or last name, such as Yolanda, Yvon, or Yvette. The letter Y is considered a vowel if there are no other vowels in the name, such as Bly or Flynn.

This is the number for self-discipline, hard work, and service, and we find its beauty in productivity, organization, wholeness, and unity. The number four produces the most trustworthy, practical, and down-to-earth individuals—the cornerstone members of society and businesses. The goal of this number is learning to take orders and to carry them out with dedication and perseverance. They always demand as much from themselves as they do from others … and sometimes a lot more. They have the kind of willpower that is often mistaken for sheer stubbornness. It’s not. It is conviction and endurance.

You are a grounding force in all your endeavors. You are athletic physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Being reliable and a hard worker challenges you to be a team player in group situations where you might find that other people aren’t quite as devoted to their work as you are. Patience and tolerance are virtues that number fours must acquire if they are to be truly happy in this lifetime.

The double two gives you a sense of liberty, balance, and love that helps you navigate the earth and her elements. You are a healer at heart, and when you utilize your gifts of intuition and creativity, you can connect with these healing properties and the magic available within nature’s elements. Healing comes naturally to people because they inherently feel the connection to nature pulsing through their veins. With their meticulous sense of order, they intuitively know what specific cures treat certain illnesses. Their kinship with nature allows them to communicate with the elements and draw upon sacred medicines. All of this takes practice, of course, but these abilities are available to the fours who are called into the healing field.

Building a strong foundation in every area of your life will keep you busy, as you were born to create, invent, and explore. You realize that nothing will last if it isn’t structured on solid ground first. Many trials and errors will happen before you finally satisfy your lust for perfectionism. You simply won’t get involved in a project unless it is securely mounted and stable. This is a perfect parable for your life in general.

You find a Zen-like satisfaction in performing the simplest of repetitive chores, as you feel closest to Source when you are restoring harmony to unbalanced situations. You express yourself best by creating energy. You are highly systematic by nature. You thrive in orderly corporate atmospheres because of your unique perspective toward organizations. Fours make excellent teachers, musicians, engineers, surgeons, healers, and so on. They work well with their hands and have an innate understanding of structure, design, and rhythm. Their highest potential is to invent or create a plan that eases humankind’s burdens.
