Rules for Name Evaluation

Each letter in the alphabet has its own meaning. These meanings are fully described in Chapter 4, where the dictionary provides definitions for each letter. It spells out what each letter means. You can put together a composite personality description by looking up the interpretation of each letter according to its position in a name.

You can learn a great deal from one name. However, the more names available to you, the greater the insights you will discover about an individual’s personality. For example, the surname will be more enlightening on a business level, whereas socially, it is the currently used first name that counts most.

For proper name evaluation, all of a person’s name must be used.

In the dictionary, you will find the following categories for each letter.

THRUST: The first letter of a name, excluding the surname category listed below.

KEY: The last letter of a name.

FIRST LETTER OF A SURNAME: The first letter of the family name, last, marriage, or professional name used.

HINGE: The middle letter of a name, found only in names containing an odd number of letters.

RANDOM: All other letters in a name.

DOUBLE LETTERS: The same letter placed together in a name—for example, AA, as in “Aaron.”

MULTIPLE LETTERS: The same letter found more than two times in a full name, whether placed together of not.
