According to Dictionary.com, numerology is..."the study of numbers, as the figures designating the year of one's birth, to determine their supposed influence on one's life, future, etc."
When I Googled the topic, there almost six million hits; I chose one entitled What Your Name Means (Numerology). The site told me to enter my full name, and warned me that "most authorities agree that the full birth name as recorded on your birth certificate is the name that must be used for all calculations involving name. Nicknames, changed names including marriage name changes do not dilute the importance of the name given to you by your parents." I submitted the information and sat back to wait for the results.
This is what I learned:

Those 19 letters total to 81

Be aware of your capabilities, so that you can make use of them at appropriate times.
