Welcome to my anthroponymy project! I’m Ric Galit, the creator of this website. This project is my second attempt to give an alternative meaning to a person’s first name. You won’t see any traditional definition of names here. My goal is to provide a fun way to discover the hidden secrets of any name.
Let’s start with your name. Here’s how this website does its magic. You might have guessed it already. An acrostic is one of the creative ways to give a new meaning to a name. There is virtue for every letter in your first name.
Quickly now, get a piece of paper and write down the letters of your name. Give it ample spacing. You’re going to assign a number for each letter in your name base on Pythagorean numerology. Use the lookup table below and write down the corresponding numbers for your name.
Add all the numbers until you get a single digit from 1 to 9, or the master number 11 and 22 wherein you don’t reduce them any further. Every number has a corresponding meaning. The result you’ll get is called the Destiny Number. It will describe your primary talents and purpose in life. Your natural abilities base on your name.
Now add up all the number from the vowels in your name. For simplicity sake, Y and W are not vowels. Only the letters A, E, I, O, and U are vowels. The number you will get is called the Heart’s Desire Number. As the name suggests, it’s your deepest desire. It’s what your name wants to accomplish. Others call this as the Soul Urge Number.
After the vowels, add the consonants in your name. Follow the same procedure as before. Reduce the total to a single digit but don’t reduce the master number 11 and 22. This value is called the Personality Number. It will describe what you are trying to project outwards. It may not be the real you, but the impression that others see in you.
The cornerstone or the first letter of your name also has a special meaning. It can describe how you experience life. It’s your approach to life’s ups and downs.
The popularity database uses the public records of the U.S. Social Security Administration. Every year they release an update that data miners like me enjoy tweaking and presenting in a fun-to-read manner. You won’t see any popularity distribution graphs here. Just plain text that is amusing to read.
The United Nations Population Division also publishes a report every two years. It contains world population estimates and projections.
What? Are you still here? Are you not interested in finding the hidden secrets of your name?
