Name Numbers: How to Decode Names With Chaldean Numerology

What is Chaldean Numerology?

The Chaldean were a group of people who lived in Babylonia, or present-day Iraq.

And when Alexander conquered Babylonia, the knowledge of numerology of the Chaldean people got transferred to Greece.

The Numbers Used

In this system we use the numbers one to eight.

The number nine in the system of Chaldean Numerology is considered as sacred and is kept separate.

And in Chaldean Numerology, there are other numbers like 11, 22 and 33 also, which are also considered as master numbers or sacred numbers.

How to calculate a name number?

To calculate the name number, the first thing you require is this table.

Name Numbers Table


It is a very important table, and is used to calculate one’s name number.

In order to calculate a name number, first you have to write the letters of the name of:

  • the person
  • your pet
  • a place
  • or a company for whom you want to calculate the name number.

Then note down the digits connected to that letter.

Next add the digits of all the letters of the name of the person.

Then you will arrive at the name number.

So the digit connected with letter A is one, B two, C three, D four, E five, U six, O seven and F eight.

It is a unique concept in Chaldean Numerology that each letter is assigned a digit.

An Example



So, in this example, we will calculate the name number of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

The digit for N is five, E five, L three, S three, O seven, N five.

So you add all the digits, you get 28.

Now, 28 is a two digit number.

So you further add those two digits. Two plus eight, you get 10.

Then again, add those two digits.

One plus zero, you get one.

Similarly, you calculate the name number for his middle name.

And then for his surname, Mandela.

Then you get the digits for the three parts of his name, the first part, the middle part, and the surname.

Now you add those three digits.

You get one plus four plus five.

So his name number is one.

Now you can also calculate the name number for a company.

A Company Example

Let’s take Google.

So Google, G three, double O seven, plus seven.

Then again G, then L and E.

So three times you have three, which is nine.

Then you have 14, which is 26.

Then 26, you add five, you get 31.

So, the name number for Google is four.
