Interpreting Numbers In Relation to Your Middle Name

(The Emotional Self)


Your middle name represents how you behave emotionally, the type of people you are attracted to, and why you are attracted to them. The information presented here is a fraction of what is taken into consideration when determining an individual’s emotional personality. However, as a thumbnail sketch the interpretations are accurate.


Our emotional relationships (66) enable us to evolve through our interactions with others and by allowing vulnerability into our lives. Numerically, the word “relationships” equals the number 66, a master number. Six is the number for love; 66 represents the unconditional love and acceptance of all things from a cosmic perspective, i.e., every thing is connected/related. It is through these loving experiences that we rediscover our true Self. The more we allow ourselves to be emotionally vulnerable (6), the more compassionate we become.


If there is no middle name, this individual has chosen to learn to balance their emotions, speak up in a timely fashion, and let go of emotional and sentimental attachments. Applying this theory to all cultures, and making a gross generalization: Asians with no middle names are reserved, residents of Hispanic Countries are very intense. Other numbers in the chart related to interactions with others will appear to offer assistance in attaining balance. However, balance can be difficult to achieve in the cultural norm is followed.


Using the chart below, determine the numerical total of your middle name. For example, if your middle name is Benjamin, the B represents 2, the E is 5, the N is 5 etc.. When you are finished, add all of the numbers then reduce them to a single digit. 






- It is especially important that you be aware of the double-digit total of the middle name. Look at each of the numbers. For example, the letters in Benjamin add up to 32/5, a 3 and a 2 combine to make the 5.


- Look up the positive and negative meanings for the number 3 and determine if the individual has more positive or negative characteristics; then do the same for the number 2.


- Having a sense of the combined numbers gives a stronger basis for determining whether the 5 will be more positive or more negative.
