Though born with just one, I’ve had many names throughout my life. Some nicknames include: Cotton Top, Motorhead, Bookworm, Momma Noos, Debbie Do and Dearest One.
Believing in magic and much of what it encompasses, I recently decided to do a self-exploration to find my Fairy Name. There are several ways to go about it. Some are a bit on the silly side, while others can be quite complicated. I discovered a Numerology book by Gerie Bauer at one of my local shops, Mystic Valley, a lovely place that supports all paths in life. I found it to be very logical and extremely doable. I especially appreciated the consistency of Numerology. If you can’t find this book at a small business near you, click here to purchase online.
First, I needed to find my Life Path Number. It has everything to do with the month, day and year you are born. Mine turned out to be the number 6.
Here is a sample of how to find your Life Path Number:
If your birthday is December 15, 1992:
December – 12, 1+2=3
15 – 1+5=6
1992 – 1+9+9+2=21, 2+1=3
Finally, take the 3 numbers and add them up. Note: in this formula of numerology, you never end up with a two digit number.
The Life Path Number of a person born December 15, 1992 is 3.
The next action was to find names that broke down to my Life Path Number 6, at the same time holding special meaning. I used my Character Naming Sourcebook. It is a wonderful 486-page compilation of names, along with their meanings and origins.
Almost every character’s name in my book, The Gentry: Rebirth has purposeful meaning. For example: Ignatius Porteur is a brownie who watches over the bed and breakfast from his space behind the kitchen’s wood burning stove. Ignatius=Fiery, Porteur=Gate Keeper. Both names are French.
After an evening of searching, calculating and narrowing, I came up with my Fairy Name.
Mirabel – Beauty 4+9+9+1+2+5+3=33, 3+3=6
Alisa – Truthful, Nobel Humor 1+3+9+1+1=15, 1+5=6
Dawn – Light 4+1+5+5=15, 1+5=6
So… Mirabel Alisa Dawn was born.
At 59, the path has been long, winding and full of excitement. As I am continually chasing dreams, the journey is certainly not ending any time soon. Finding my Fairy Name just seemed to be a next step for me. However, just as Shakespeare wrote, no matter what I’m called, I’m still the same happy and magical dreamer.
I would love to hear from you. Do you have a Fairy or Witch Name? … even a nickname that completely describes you? Any positive thoughts of, or experiences with Numerology?
