Astrology of Names
The study of the letters in your name is called Acrophonology, and it equates each letter of the alphabet to a sign in the astrological zodiac. Each one of your names, including maiden, married and any nicknames you may have is important.
Societies have continuously looked to the skies for signs as to what may be happening about them, and it stands to reason that the stars have also predisposed the giving of names during the times. Many civilisations have thought, and some still do, that names based on the situations of the planets and stars at birth carry good luck and would repeatedly place their holders in synchronization with the cosmos. Astrologers throughout time have often been engaged to aid new parents choose positive names for their children, endorsing names based on a sign of the zodiac or connected to the heavenly fundamentals that govern the sign.
In China, astrologers are often used to control the influence of the basic elements – earth, fire, air, water, metal, and wood – that are related to the planets that are in place at a child’s birth. These astrologers cast a horoscope on the third day after the baby’s birth and look for a equilibrium of these foundations. If the elements are out of balance, they may commend a name that will align them more auspiciously for the child.
