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 widely known as the “abundance number” but more accurate would be the number for resource or flow because of the infinity loop the eight illustrates when turned on its side. In order for the eights to access this ability, they must be in integrity with their energy, including the spoken word. The loops in the eight are like a hose; if it is kinked or blocked, the flow of energy will back up and work against you rather than for you.

You are socially motivated and become energized around people who are networking. You find endless possibilities with the right connections, and this keeps you on your toes as a collector of ideas. Lofty communication is a skill you have to express yourself, and you are quite good at painting a handsome portrait of yourself in the business world. Success excites you, and you always play to win.

The energy of the number eight is about manifestation, accumulation, and attracting resources or abundance. The most popular areas in one’s life would be money, fame, and power. The number eight is the infinity symbol and refers to energy flow. Eights are powerhouses of energy and are here to learn to regulate the flow of giving and receiving unconditionally. The central work for them involves contacting their inner abundance, inner power, and inner authority; when they find these inside themselves, they manifest naturally in the world.

Those working this number need to develop the attitudes, skills, and confidence to understand the laws of material success, such as the fair balance of energy exchange. When they make service the center of their lives—sharing money, energy, and wisdom as freely as they are able—they embrace their destiny in the most positive sense, combining money and worldly power with the power of the heart.

You express yourself best by creating prosperity. You have a natural flair for making money, which is unrivalled by the other numbers. You have the potential for considerable achievement in business or other powerful positions. Your highest potential in life is to be wealthy and share your bounty to improve the world you live in.

Eights are like a steel rod from the earth to the sky in a lightning storm. They have the ability to access pure electrical energy when they remain open and flowing, which allows them to create. The cycle of karma, that we receive what we give, is what the number eight is here to learn and once understood and implemented, it naturally grants the eight abundance.
