How many Mikes do you know who have similar personalities, or Mary’s, or Jessica’s or Alex’s? Pretty amazing really, the likenesses that rise to the surface, all through the chord-link of the name. I remember years ago, connecting the behavioral-dots between a couple of Kevin’s I knew. I thought they were all weird. (Sorry to any Kevin’s reading this today.) Little did I know then, how much truth there is in the personality-name-stamp connection.
Names are really frequencies. They resonate to sound and vibration, length and energy. Mike or Mary or Whomever will share the same/similar frequency as other’s who share this name. It’s the reason so many parents choose the same name even when they realize their child will be one of eight Jessica’s in the class. They like the feel of the name and what it will create for their child. And Jessica’s have a good reputation so they run with it. As parents we’re going for character strength: the name impacts this greatly. It’s fascinating. In ages past, the naming of a child came with a very clear honoring ceremony to celebrate the arrival of a new soul. The name is/was to give the new born strength for the life’s journey. The name carried/s with it the energy of cause and direction for the soul to travel.
Taking this one step further, when names are broken down into numerology the underlying themes start to resonate and become apparent as each number carries with it patterns and emotional imprinting.
A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9, J=1, K=2, L=3, M=4, N=5, O=6, P=7, Q=8, R=9, S=1, T=2, U=3, V=4, W=5, X=6, Y=7, Z=8
Add up all the letters, then take it down to single digits. For example, if you arrive at 32, then the final number for your name is 5. There are many books available if you are interested in learning more about names and numerology.
I love too, there are some names that are in circulation which have been around for centuries, Michael, John, Mary, Sarah (these names are extremely symbolic and with strong associations) and then there are those who have been retired for good reason: Mildred, Winnifred, Willard, Bertha, Harold, Dick. (My great grandmother’s name’s were Winnifred and Thelma. My great grandfather was Willard – What were their parents thinking??)
My reason for directing focus on our names is actually from a different angle. Names can be utilized as a wonderful resource for discovering deeper meaning of our life’s purpose. And besides it’s a fun exercise. Perhaps you already know this trick, however if you haven’t worked with it for a while or for the first time, it can be quite revealing.
Write down all your names, including your nick names, maiden, married etc. Separate the letters turning it into a scrabble like process. Begin to form words and discover the magical descriptive nouns and verbs which appear under the surface of your name.
I’ll use my name as an example. My given name is Candia Lee Sanders; I went by Candie for two decades, so I have an A and an E to work with. Both are relevant. My first marriage, my name became Schweitzer for nearly twenty years. This added to my pile some wild and wonderful letters: Z and and H in addition to a T. These additional letters gave me the ability to spell out the words, W I Z A R D, H E A L E R and T E A C H E R in addition to the words which my original names created. All of which are true. I actually took the time to consider my second husband’s name, Ross, if it would add any extra directives/directions to my energy field if I took his name. I’d only add an O. An O really didn’t impact me so I choose to keep my maiden name.
I would invite you to use this fun and revealing tool for all kinds of divination. If you are interested in several jobs/career opportunities, separate the location and job opportunity by their letters and scrabble them into a pile, then see what the words disclose. Compare each job and location the same way to reveal which is the most beneficial and right for you. You can do this with prospective partners too. See what their name reveals then add their letters to yours to see what the overall package between you could create on both sides, good and challenging. The list is endless to how you can utilize this ancient tool created through sounds and frequencies.
Please share if you discover any hidden treasures buried in the imagery of your name – I’d love to hear. Trust the truth of your exploration. The universe is ready to share information regularly if you only take the time to delve.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
Post script. I was engaged to a George. (Geo the I) I dated two more George’s, one in Europe and one in LA. And then to top it off, I married a George (IV). Obviously there is a frequency in the name I was attracted to. My grandpa’s name was Dale. I married a Dale. Again, the vibration of the name carries weight and energy we seek.

There is a wonderful internet tool to rearrange the letters of your name and find new words: http://www.wordsmith.org/anagram/
As an interpersonal calling card, names are very powerful. Assigning a set of sounds and consonants to represent a human being makes a significant change in everyone’s perception of that person.
The same man, born as George or Willard, would lead two very different lives.
I just used the anagram tool to find out, I am Natural En Chess.
I think that’s so cool. It’s amazing what you can discover. When I put my first husband’s name with mine it spelled out children. And it’s true. Couldn’t have had them with anyone else. It’s a wise little tool. Have fun becoming the expert of the game. 😉
Of course; look at your name as a perfect example. There are threads of personality that come through in the same name, then you add in the middle and last name and it changes everything. Of course this is an anagram explorer, I like taking it to the next level and utilizing it for a multiple of purposes, such as discovering the best location and career move to marrying the best individual for one’s growth. It’s like a bit of magic waiting to be discovered. 🙂 Thanks Caelan for your wonderful suggestions.
