The Meaning of Your Last Name and Name Changes

I can't even pronounce it

Most of us think little about the importance of our last names.  We believe it comes from our Father–in most cultures–and that we are stuck with it the rest of our lives.  Some of us carry our Mother’s last name.  That is a bit unusual.  Most of us inherit our Father’s name.  The word to remember here is “inherit”.

In Numerology the last name is considered the “earth plane” name.  It is the name that sets up your inheritance for karma and assignment that you have agreed to assist with while you are alive.  The last name is the name that gives you the opportunity to heal or end the karma of a long or short lineage.  Sometimes issues within a person have been a general family issue for many, many generations.  It can be as noticeable as a long line of alcoholics or generations of co-dependencies.  It can be mental illness, generations of those who behaved as strong, lonely women, physical illnesses etc.  The last name hides the story of your ancestors’ issues.  An example would be a last name that has the letter “o” in it.  The letter “o” in this position reveals issues with the pancreas and the individual can be prone to either high or low sugar. In this case, there was usually some form of starvation in the inheritance.  Perhaps of Irish or Native American ancestry.

Women Carry the Load

You are as light as a feather!

When a woman takes on her husband’s last name at marriage, she unconsciously agrees to assist him with his ancestral group karma. She not only has her own but now she has his.   When a person emigrates to another country and the spelling of the last name is changed, the children born of this new name no longer carry the karmic inheritance of the Father.  It ended with his name change.

It is important to remember that we choose our birth name prior to birth.  Once it is registered here, it activates the life of the child.  It becomes a living, breathing, program.  You can never change this blueprint.  You can take on new names over it, you can choose to change the spelling of the name or names.  You can decide to never use the original registered name and dismiss it as if it never existed.  The fact of the matter is, however, that it still keeps ticking along right underneath all the changes put on top of it.  That is why people keep dreaming up unusual and bizarre names with the intention of improving or removing their original birth names.  It is to be remembered though that under stress or duress, we always revert to our true nature.

For whatever the reason you carry your birth name, your Soul, which creates it, knows what it is doing.  The  code hidden within your name, masked by letters, tells the story of this particular incarnation and how you can best live your life to gain the most growth during your time on Earth.

Understand your names and you understand your “true” self.

    Thank you for this article. I was given my mother’s and steps dad surname. For the sake of simplicity I have just been using my stepdads surname. However, today I questioned myself about the karmic and energetic effects of his surname in my life. I wondered if I should remove his surname and have only my mum’s surname. Part of me wondered if it was meant to be that I carry his surname, as it could be a karma I have chosen before coming to this encarnation, another part thinks that the fact I just realise this mean I need to change this now. Any thoughts on this ?

    It has certainly been a wild and scary ride this campaign. I am enormously saddened to see women disparage Hillary Clinton. She has spent her entire adult life since she graduated as valedictorian in her college class, advocating and working for children, women, and all Americans. Those who disparage and criticize her obviously are listening to sound bites and the hateful rhetoric of her opponents. I suggest they do some fact checking and watch the PBS & CNN documentaries about Both presidential candidates and see which one is qualified and experienced, and has the temperament to lead this country forward. Michael Moore’s new film “Trump,and” is now available on iTunes and UTube. Download and see what this documentary film maker has to say who was not a supporter of hers either.
    There is nothing that she has allegedly been “accused” of that is based in fact, including the innuendoes about all of the people in her life who have died. Many people in my life have also died, none of whom I killed. That’s life.
    I am grateful for Gail’s logic during this anxious time and feel hopeful that the only sane and qualified person will be the free world.

    Sugar issues remain in this blueprint. This is more an individual issue than family inheritance. Baby the pancreas–little alcohol, sugar and other foods that spike the insulin from the pancreas.

    Study more of numerology. Each letter has significance, even more so when the same letter is repeated together–as in the name of Kathleen.

  6. gail says:

    Use the first registered birth name. You overlay it with the adopted name. Figure out both charts. You will travel between each. The first registered name carries the weight.

  7. gail says:

    If we immigrate to another country and change our name, we still carry our original name and issues–even though we do not use it. We don’t change our karma when we marry. If we choose to take on the husband’s last name, we help him with his karma as well. Your blueprint is different than your karmic issues. They are a part of your blueprint.

    The made up name on the birth certificate is the one you use. You do not carry the biological father’s inheritance (issues).

  9. Stephanie says:

    Dear Gail,

    My biological father’s last name is not the name on my birth certificate. My mother made up a name at my birth. I know my biological last name (I was told what it was and then confirmed it to be true.), but have never used it.

    For some years of my childhood (kindergarten through age 16) my mother also had me use my stepfathers last name (even though he never adopted me), however it is also not the last name on my birth certificate.

    From the age of 16 until now I have used the name on my birth certificate.

    I have never married. So, what does this mean? Do I or have I carried the Karmic load of my biological father, and the name on my birth certificate, and my stepfather’s last name?

    I’m very interested in hearing your response.

    Thank you

    Dear Gail,

    I think it’s very interesting that if we emigrate to another country and change our name, the Karma can be changed. When we marry and take on our husband’s family name the Karma can be changed but if we “decide” to change our names the Karma cannot be changed. Or is this just the difference between first and last/family names? Or … am I confusing blueprint with Karma?

    Hey Gail,

    Love the newsletter. I’ve got one for you. Last name-wise I am the product of an unknown biological father, birth name of a stepfather and currently name after my adoption parents. What thoughts might you be able to share in this regard?

    My best regards,

  12. Karen says:

    Well I have an “o” in my last name and am hypglycemic. How can we learn what conditions the other letters represent?

  13. Elizabeth says:

    Dear Gail,

    Do I still have the ancestral group karma of my ex-husband’s last name? I was married for six years, then divorced? He’s had several marriages, so I guess they’re all helping his group karma?

    Thank you for such interesting information!

  14. Regina says:

    If my Father’s name was changed before I was born, but the new name has an *o* as did the original name, does the pancreas weakness remain? And therefore would the pancreas problem not be an ancestral issue, but rather an individual/karmic one?

  15. L.P. says:

    Hi Gail,

    Does this mean that if I change my name to Pallack I will get rid of my diabetes? In my first name I have an o ,should I change the o mto an a? Therefore I would be Larinda.

    Thank you!
