Your Name Reveals Who You Truly Are

Author Malcolm Gladwell stated, “I wrote Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking because I began to get obsessed with the way that all of us seem to make up our minds about other people in an instant, without doing any real thinking.”

Do we make up our minds about others because of first impressions or does it go deeper than that? Are we subconsciously picking up something held in a person’s name, which is not recognized consciously, such that we have an immediate impression of who the person is?

Neimology® Science interprets names according to the placement of letters in a name and how the letters interact with each other to reveal hidden secrets about one’s character and personality. Specific letter combinations in a name can predict unique qualities and characteristics. Trained as a mathematician and blessed with acute observation skills in identifying patterns, I developed this unique science over a 35-year period utilizing the fields of psychology, sociology, philosophy and statistics. The result is that clues to what we think, feel, and how we behave can all be revealed in one's name.

First, Last, Middle

Your first name represents the essence of who you are. This is who you are at the core level and represents what your soul wishes for you to learn and share during this lifetime. This is the part of you that continually grows in depth, yet remains the same. For example, if your first name indicates that finances are important to you, as indicated by the combinations “tri”, “nan” or the first letter being “J,” then as a child you may learn how to manage your allowance, and as an adult you would decide it is important to have a good portfolio. The depth of how you use your resources would change but not the importance of financial security.

Your middle name indicates behaviors that come into fruition when you are under stress. This is because your middle name indicates who you were in your last embodiment. You are most comfortable with those behaviors as you recently expressed them for an entire lifetime. Thus, when under pressure or stress in this lifetime, it is where you habitually go, rather than the new ones indicated in the first name.

An example of this would be the name Maria, a common middle name. The name Maria indicates a person who self-sacrifices for the good of the whole and rarely, if ever, receives from others. Marias work hard and often are manipulated into doing work that is not theirs to do. If you are a middle-named Maria, check to see if you revert back into a self-sacrificing mode, doing more than your fair share of the workload when you are under stress.

Not everyone has a middle name. This is an indication of one of two things. The first is when the last life got cut short, as in a war or car accident, that the soul reincarnates quickly to continue the same plan that was created for the previous incarnation. The soul would then choose the same first name as in the previous life to enhance that life’s continuation. The second instance is when the soul spent so much time on the other side prior to reincarnating that the previous life on Earth has little influence on the current life. Oftentimes, any remaining issues from a previous life were learned in the afterlife. The last name normally indicates which of these two scenarios occurred.

Your last name indicates environmental influences that can have an effect on you while you are growing up. Your nationality, parents, teachers, neighbors, friends and enemies can influence what types of people you will attract into your life. A popular ending in a last name is the combination “son,” as in Anderson, Johnson, and Wilson. “Son” attracts people who expect you to be reasonable, logical and emotionally tied to the family’s values. Quite often these people are not allowed to be who they are because of family expectations, and hence, must leave home to become who they were meant to be, especially when they do not wish to be limited by their family values.  

Placement Of Vowels

Vowels represent our emotions. The first vowel in the first name, regardless if it is the first, second or third letter in the name, reveals our communication style, what types of gifts we like to receive, how we show love for another, and our learning style.

For instance, people with “a” as a first vowel show their love by doing things for another person, usually by helping them with their work. For people with the first vowel “e,” love is shown through touch and sweet words, possibly even writing poems for the ones you love. First vowel “i” people show their love by including you in their thoughts and activities, like inviting you to their family gatherings and showering you with forwarded e-mails. While people with a first vowel of “o” show their love by nurturing others and often own pets as they have an abundance of love to share. They love taking care of the people they love.

People whose first names have “u” as the first vowel are the entertainers in this world. They show their love by getting you to see things from a different point of view with the intention of lightening your load, along with doing their best to get you to laugh. People with the first vowel of “y” are insatiable learners, often in the spiritual realms. They show their love by sharing their knowledge with you.  

When you understand how people best show love, you can love them back in the way that they understand best. When you help “a’s” with their work, they know they are loved. Touch and speak romantically to “e’s” and they feel loved. Include the “i’s” in what you are doing, and share money and resources with “o’s” to make them feel most loved. The more money you spend on an “o,” the more loved they feel. Share jokes, stories and entertain a “u,” while you save your choice knowledge for sharing with a “y.” How we naturally show love indicates how we wish to receive it.

Consonant Values

Consonants represent our attitudes. For example the letters “J,” “S” and “W,” in the first letter position of the first name, all indicate that continual learning is important to the individual. Yet, how they learn is different. People whose first name begins with “J” are intuitive; they just know things. Others consider these people brilliant. People whose name begins with “S” are school smart. They can learn anything once someone shows them the basics. However, “S’s” prefer not to be micromanaged, so once s/he has caught onto an idea, s/he prefers to discover the rest on their own. In contrast, people whose first name begins with “W” learn through experiences. They dislike making the same mistake twice believing in the age-old adage that wise men learn from other’s mistakes while fools learn from their own.

The “C” and “K” both indicate leadership skills when in the first letter position. “C” people do what suits them best so they know it will be done right. “K’s” like to make sure everyone benefits when they lead.

Each individual is born into this life with both talents and challenges and something innately special to contribute to the world. Your name reveals these secrets. So when someone asks, “Who are you?” and you reply with your name, you know that indeed says it all.
