Have you ever wondered why your parents chose your name? Was it just accidental, a whim, or do you have a name passed down through generations? Do you love your name or do you despise it?
Our name has more impact on our lives than we can imagine. And it’s interesting and enlightening to learn how Numerology offers insight into our personalities and life purpose based on our name. Each letter of your name holds significance and is used to calculate various aspects of your chart.
 
We’re going to take a look at your middle name and investigate what it might indicate about you.

The Secret Power Behind Your Middle Name

Your middle name indicates hidden potential. This name is wedged in between your first and last name – and so quite literally, its energy relates to aspects of your personality that aren’t often seen. Think about how often you actually use your middle name. Rarely, right? Perhaps it’s used to announce your birth or graduation, when signing legal documents, or when your mother is really angry with you. The elements represented here are often a rarely observed or buried aspect of yourself. So much so that what it has to share with you may surprise even you, let alone those around you.

Your middle name shows you where you have deep-seated skills, talents, and challenges. Yet often these aspects are camouflaged – hidden within or behind something else.
Let’s see what your middle name reveals.

How To Calculate Your Middle Name Numerology

Remember, each letter corresponds with a number in Numerology – and we’re using Pythagorean Numerology in this example.

1 = A, J, S
2 = B, K, T
3 = C, L, U
4 = D, M, V
5 = E, N, W
6 = F, O, X
7 = G, P, Y
8 = H, Q, Z
9 = I, R

Let’s do a quick example. Let’s say your middle name is Emily.

E = 5
M = 4
I = 9
L = 3
Y = 7
5 + 4 + 9 + 3 + 7 = 28

Keep digiting down to a one-digit number.

2 + 8 = 1

If your middle name were Emily, you’d have hidden potential relating to the number 1.
