Letters In Your Name
© 1994 by Hans Decoz and Tom Monte / All rights
Each letter in your name
represents your characteristics, but the location of
the letters can determine their impact.
For instance, the first letter
of your name (use your first name at birth) is called
the Cornerstone. It gives you an indication of your
character, particularly in the way you approach opportunities
and obstacles. The last letter of your first name reveals
your ability and attitude toward finishing projects
that you start. This letter is called your Capstone.
Together, your Cornerstone and Capstone can tell you
much about your capacity to start and finish a project
The first vowel of your first
name reveals something of your deeper self.
As was explained in the Numerology
~ The Core Numbers: Heart's Desire Number article, the
Heart's Desire is a somewhat hidden, but strongly represented,
core number in your chart. It is a big part of yourself
that you do not reveal easily or indiscriminately, and
it is usually recognized only by your relatives and
The first vowel of your name
is the little window through which you allow the uninitiated
a glimpse at your deeper self.
It is interesting to note
that a person who uses a first name with a different
first vowel as the original birth name is particularly
apprehensive of revealing his or her deeper self.
For example, Thomas' first
vowel is the letter O. He goes by Tom, allowing another
person, the first time they meet, a limited view of
his deeper nature through the little window of the first
Albert, who introduces himself
as Bert, is more protective of his vulnerable Heart's
Desire, and he does not reveal his true first vowel.
Only those who know him to have the birth name Albert
are allowed to look through the little window into Bert's
The author has described
a general meaning of the letters of the alphabet below.
However, keep in mind their location in the chart, and
adjust the description accordingly.
The letters of your name
reveal the strengths and weaknesses that have been part
of your make-up since the day you came into this world.
Through careful analysis
of your chart, particularly the letters of your name,
and the order in which they appear, you have the opportunity
to recognize and to overcome your weaknesses, as well
as to take full advantage of your strengths.
Study the descriptions of
the letters, then write your name in large print on
on a piece of cardboard, and contemplate each letter
and the position where it is found. You will be amazed
how much insight can be gained through this method.

Same for me wrt the name that
I've been called since birth. (A little note - in Holland
it is common to have a legal/christening name, and then
birth announcement said "We have a daughter, her
name is [Christening name], we will call her [my "regular"
forms in Holland always have space for that regular
name, and they ask for Christening initials, not for
legal first name/second name initial like they do in
North America. I have never been called by my first
legal name before until I started receiving mail for
that name here in North America. So while I will acknowledge
it as a legal name, my real name is my aka. And this
winter I will be applying to have it added officially
to my legal names for Canadian law since legal names
in Holland can only be changed when one can prove psychological
trauma or hardship.)
for my AKA, the name that I have been called by friends
and family since the day I was born, and which is acknowledged
by Dutch law to be my name:
M Special Letter You are energetic and hardworking
with a touch of the workaholic. You are efficient, and
you do not tire easily. You probably have a strong physical
constitution. You are domestic, and want financial security.
You are tolerant and can endure hardships. You have
to learn to be more patient with others.
E Special Letter The E needs plenty of freedom.
Because you are physical and passionate, you will probably
be married more than once. You like to be social and
to entertain. You are highly perceptive, and not easily
fooled. You are original and versatile. You are also
capable of looking at a situation from different perspectives.
You must learn discipline.
Holland many people leave out the last two letters of
my name, though I never have introduced myself as such
or considered it my nickname. So I would say that my
Dutch family and friends may have trouble with the "J"
and "E" part of me?
vowel is an A. For my first Christening name: First
letter is a G, last one is an A.
That's interesting to have both a Christening and
"regular" name, and that in Holland some leave
out the last two letters of your name, mouse. All of
those points just might play a role in how you "come
off" to people who know you as they know you. Although
it doesn't change who you are, it likely makes certain
of your qualities stand out in certain ways for certain
people (if that makes sense).
Numerology For A House
If anyone can help here please
step in I'd be grateful. We are moving into our new
home within the next month, if all goes to plan. Our
new house number will be 45 making 9 if I'm correct.
What is the significance
of the number 9 with regard to a home would anyone know?
Also, my life path number
is 9, Dolphin's is also 9, The house 9.
This little sum 3 x 9 (the above) = 27 = 2 + 7 = 9
9 is intriguing me at the moment I'm sure you can see
why! Insights welcome.
Maat, I'd have to
run get my books, but off the top of my head 9 is a
completion number where things are resolved. It funny
I have only ever lived at no 18 (1+8=9). The family
home (where i lived from being born to 26) is number
18 and my house is number 18. Hmm doesn't say much for
the number 9 being a resolution number
Thanks for the
info - as ever reliable. Oftentimes, I imagine you like
something out of a Harry Potter film, surrounded by
books, head bent over in studious pose, Thank you to
you and those wonderful books (library) of yours!
used to be quite fluent in numerology, but having put
it down for such a very long time, I can only post what
I can remember. That is... What I THINK I can remember...
I may very well be mistaken, as memory might fail without
practice, but to my recollection, the number 9 represents
the finishing of a cycle ~ the cycle being from 1 to
9, and 10 (1 + 0) beginning a new cycle of 9. When you
look at your addy, you need to also look at the significance
of the other numbers. 4, is related to business, as
far as being business minded, detail oriented. The number
5 I remember is a dynamic number and at the same time
it can represent overindulgence in things. It is a lively
number; carefree, and because of this it is easy for
5s to bring overindulgence.
little sum 3 x 9 (the above) = 27 = 2 + 7 = 9
is generally a very creative number; poets, artists,
musicians, etc. usually have 3s in their numbers.)
number two is a number of wisdom and insight, and the
number 7 is a number of spirituality. 27 has a meaning
of its own Also, when looking at your address, don't
just look at the numerals; look at the word that represents
the street. Speaking of streets, you also might want
to factor in the values of "Street, Avenue, Road,
Way, Drive, Place" and other types of words describing
the type of "street." And you might not want
to leave out the zip code either. I do have a book at
home, packed away somewhere still, and if I can find
it (don't hold your breath ~ lol) I'd be happy to let
you know what 27 means, as well as 45. The book does
have information on numbers in addresses, and I'll let
you know what it indicates for that too, if I can find
the book. Don't take my words above for gold ~ I am
not sure if I remember everything correctly, but I believe
at least what I wrote here is right. I'll try to confirm
it for you tomorrow.
Thanks Sister Cyber, the info you provided is really
interesting and useful. It's made me think that I've
more to consider in my new address as we will have an
area number and a Street number. The Street will be
6 and the area of The Springs will be 15 I think. Mmm
there's a bit to think about there. Thanks for the help
and don't go to any trouble with the book, I know you've
a lot on your mind right now. That's why I'm sending
a few extra of these today.
Oh gosh ~ thank you ~ that is so sweet! *grabs the
love* You're very welcome. I wouldn't bet all my money
on that info I provided though because it's been a while
since I've looked into numbers for anything. But I did
put it to the best of my memory. And a little more...
6 is representative of love. The number 1 is a number
of leadership and strength, and I see you also have
the dynamic five again. The lights were out at home
for a portion of last evening so I couldn't look for
the book anyway. I do promise to get back to this because
I would feel rotten if I mistakenly gave you bum data.
least *something* that was packed has finally come out
numbers in your environment give indications that should
not be ignored. Understanding their meaning and their
purpose can help you to move along the path of life
smoothly, and with less anxiety. One of the most important
and telling numbers is your house number. It foretells
the kind of events and experiences, both positive and
negative, that you will likely encounter during your
stay in that house. To understand your house or telephone
number, you have to have a good understanding of the
nine single-digit numbers, and to use this insight to
analyze multiple-digit numbers in your environment.

there. I'm also looking to use one room as a healing
room. On the whole the numbers are quite good then!
Thanks for your efforts with this!
~ your welcome! Just to complicate this a little further
for you... hehehe... When you calculate something like
the street *name* ~ for example, I think the one you
gave was "Spring" you should observe how the
numbers appear in the name according to their letter
placement, but not so much as how many time a number
repeats in the name or on the contrary, what numbers
are not represented. Confused yet? Like... S = 1 P =
7 R = 9 I = 9 N = 5 G = 7 You see you have 2 7s and
2 9s, making the qualities of these numbers "stronger"
I guess (for lack of a better term at the moment). Besides
those two numbers, the 1 and 5 are the only others represented.
Of course these numbers have to be added to a single
digit, but that's just something else to keep in mind.
there's LOTS more! I only provided the general characteristics/personalities
of the numbers you mentioned.
