A number derived from all of the letters in your FULL BIRTH NAME make up what is called the Destiny or Destiny number. Although this number is called both of these names, throughout this website it will be referred to as the Destiny number.
To arrive at your Destiny number, take each name separately and add up the letter values using the conversion chart below. Reduce each name to a single digit . Then add the results of all of the names to arrive at a total which you then once again reduce to a single digit.
Don't use nicknames, assumed name, deviations in spelling used, or omit any part of the birth name. Use it as it appears on the birth certificate. Don't worry about changes to the name (married name, etc.), just stay with complete birth name. Don't count Jr. Sr., III, etc. following the name.
The only exception to this is in the case of adoption shortly after birth, and here the name given in the adopting home should be used.
Here is how to turn letters in the full name to a Destiny Number:
