Ever wondered what does the sum of the letters of your name mean? Recently, while taking an interest in the same, I came across the field of Numerology.

Numerology is the study of numbers. No, it is not a mathematical field but related to astrology. Certain numbers express particular traits of individuals. Each letter is attributed with a certain numeric value which in turn has a direct relationship with the cosmic vibrations.

This process finds out a single digit by adding up specific letters in your full name. The sum is known as Birth Number. This figure shows many things about your character and skills.

Even if you are sceptical about believing this, there is no harm in giving this a try. At least, you will have some fun moments.

P.S.: I tried this with a sceptical mind but was bowled over by its accurate result.

#### Picking the right letters.

You need to identify all the vowels in your full name. It should include the vowels from your name, as well as, surname.

The calculation method starts when you associate each vowel with a number. Here, A = 1, E = 2, I = 3, O = 4 and U = 5.

#### The calculation.

Add the vowels to select a number and then see what it reveals about you. If you get double digits, then break them up and add to get a single digit. For instance, if it adds to 69, you need to do 6+9 = 15 and the 1+5 = 6. Remember, you need to get a single digit.
