Expression number

Your full name at birth, including the first, middle if you have one and you last names derives an expression number. Normally it is the name on your birth certificate. There are questions about what name is to be used sometimes. Below are a few examples and how to decide which name to use.


From time to time, clerical errors occur on birth certificates. If the mistake is made but is accepted by parents, it is known as the acknowledged name. Then the name present on the birth certificate, with the mistake, is used to find the Expression number.


If the error is not accepted by your parents, making you grow up using the name given to you from your parents, (while ignoring the clerical mistake) the name is used to form your expression number opposed to the name that the error appears on your birth certificate.

If you have been adopted, you should use the name given to you by your birth parents which should be on your birth certificate.


If you are adopted, and never knew your birth name, you should use the earliest name you remember but this system is useless without your proper birth name.


How do you find your Expression number?


Each letter of your name is assigned to a specific single-digit number.


Each letter is assigned to a number according to the position it lands in the alphabet: The letter A, being the first letter, is a 1; the letter B is a 2; the Y is a 25; Z is 26; and so on. Letters that come after the I (the ninth letter of the alphabet) and have double-digits, such as M, the thirteenth letter, are reduced to single digit numbers in the same way as described earlier; that is, by adding the two digits. The letter M therefore becomes a 4.


If you want to find your Expression number, you need to write out your full name, placing the appropriate number beneath or next to each letter. You then need to add the numbers of your first name and then need to turn it in to a single digit. You then need to do the same for your middle and last names. Add the three single-digit numbers, reducing them to more single-digits to find your Expression number. If you end up making a Master number such as 11, 22 or 33, you will not be required to reduce it to a single-digit number.
