The choice of business name requires careful consideration.

We discussed in the starting that numerology is complete science. Just like any other field in science, there have been many pieces of research, experiments and therefore different theories on numerology. In order to arrive at a suitable name for your business, there are multiple methods to calculate your expression numbers.

Expression number is the core number in numerology. It is calculated by assigning numbers to each letter in your company’s name.

Business Name Numerology Pythagorean Chart

Pythagoras, the famous mathematician who was fascinated by numbers, gave his theorem on how numbers affect our lives.

Going by Pythagoras’ method, the name APPLE will have the expression number:

1+7+7+3+5 = 23

Further adding the numbers to reach a single-digit number, we get 2+3 = 5.


Business Name Numerology Chaldean Chart

This system was founded by ancient Babylonians.

Going by Chaldean method, the name APPLE will have the expression number:

1+8+8+3+5 = 25

Further adding the numbers to reach a single-digit number, we get 2+5 = 7.

The major difference between the two systems is that while the former assigns numbers to alphabets on the count of 1-9, the latter believes ‘number 9’ to be a transformational number and uses a scale of 1-8.

The Pythagoras method is the most famous and we will follow this method to discuss business name numerology further in this article.

Life path number: This is the number of your full name at the time of birth.
Your personality number: A number calculated on the basis of all the consonants in your name.
