Calculating Your Heart Desire Number

In numerology, your Heart Desire Number is found by converting all the vowels in your name to their number value and then adding all the numbers until you reach a single digit.

Unless the result is an 11 or 22. They’re not reduced to a single digit because they’re considered Master Numbers. More about Master Numbers here.

Here’s an example of finding someone’s Heart Desire Number

But first – what are the number values of each letter in your name?

This chart shows the number value of each letter in the English alphabet.

So for example, the letter a = 1, b = 2, c = 3 and so on up to 9. As you can see the letter j returns back to 1 and so on till the last letter of the alphabet, z = 8

Okay, so let’s say your friend’s name is Rosemary Angelina Church.

What would her Heart Desire Number be?

First of all, let’s see just the vowels in her name.

O-E-A-Y (that’s the vowels in “Rosemary”. Yes, “y” is often classed as a vowel. Especially if the sound it’s making is like a vowel and uninterrupted. “Rosemar-ee”)

A-E-I-A (that’s Angelina)

U (that’s the only vowel in Church)

So now we swap out each letter for it’s number equivalent and add them up.

Like this:

6 + 5 + 1 + 7 (that’s O-E-A-Y)

1 + 5 + 9 + 1 (that’s A-E-I-A)

3 (and that’s U)
Add them all up and I get:



Quick double check with the calculator.

Yes, 38.

This first result, the preliminary number is sometimes called the Karmic number.

But it’s not the final result, we still need to add these digits together.

Like this:

3 + 8 = 11

So Rosemary’s Heart Desire Number is 11.

Now normally, if you get another 2 digit number you would continue to add them again until you finally reach a single digit. For example a preliminary result of 10 would be 1 + 0 = 1. And a result of 18 would be 1 + 8 = 9.
And so on.

But not with 11. And not with 22.
They’re considered Master Numbers in numerology and so remain as 2 digits.

So Rosemary’s Heart Desire Number is 11 and her Personality Number is also 11. It’s a sign of a person who’s vehicle of personality is well matched to her inner desire.
