Q: I recently became interested in numerology trying to find answers to questions surrounding events that have taken place in my life. I am divorced with a 3 year old son and I am looking to change our last name. I do not want to keep my married name, nor do I want to take back my maiden name. I am looking for a new name that will not adversely affect our destinies, but rather put us onto a more positive path. What is the best way to go about selecting a new last name for my son and myself?
A: Well, there are two of you who you are dealing with now so you will have to make sure that the new name is supportive of both of your Life Path numbers. The very basics of a positive name change are:
1) Try to make sure your new name total is the same “gender” (odd or even number) as your Life Path numbers.
2) A full name total that reduces to a number larger than your Life Path helps to provide your Life Path with all of the vibrations it might be able to use to accomplish your soul purpose and make it ‘easier’ to attain.
Please remember that the original core numbers (from your son’s birth name) will not change, but you would be adding a new influence that will steer him in a new direction. If he’s a happy little boy now, you might consider just ‘rearranging’ his current surname to create a new name with the same letters (you can add *i’s* and *r’s* to keep the same core vibration as they vibrate to 9 and therefore don’t change the final number). Make sure to really analyze his name numbers and his Life Path so that you understand why he came in (was born) with that combination and then follow your intuition as to the new surname that will benefit you both.
