What is in a name? More than most of us realize. Subconsciously, we all get an impression of someone by his name. When we see a movie, we identify with the characters' actions only when those actions match what we can accept with a person with that particular name.

We all have names in our lives that repeat in either a friendly or challenging way. On an unconscious level, we stereotype other people based on our personal experiences, deeming them good or bad. For example, if you had a horrible boss named Bruce, you would be
inclined to hold future Bruces at a distance. If you have had money stolen by a person with the name Patricia, you would be inclined
not to trust future Patricias.


The last name lets you know if the traits in the first name are being used as a gift or a challenge. All names have both gifts and challenges in them.

One of the questions I hear often is a request to know the "good" names. To me, a good name is balanced. Without challenges, we would not grow. What I look for in a name is whether the necessary gifts are there to use to overcome the challenges. Knowing how to read a name often takes away the barriers that hamper our true understanding of another.

We all understand the importance of a name on some level. When a name is difficult to pronounce, we feel uncomfortable around the person, whereas when a name is common, we feel most comfortable. Our names reflect our character traits, our feelings, our motivations and much more. Why To Consider Couples Therapy Before Breaking Up

Our name is our non-verbal communication tool that reveals our unspoken attitudes and emotions. As such, reading names gives us an immediate and accurate insight into another. It also helps us realize what is causing someone else to act a certain way. This understanding enables connection through compassion rather than judgment.


I felt that a salesperson where I was shopping was incredibly rude and short with others. This was inexcusable until I learned her name and
realized that she had a name where others were constantly trying to manipulate her. Her rudeness was a defense and a way she was
attempting to protect herself.

When someone asks you who you are, you naturally answer with your name, as if that says it all. Indeed it does ... once you know Neimology® Science.
