Write down your FULL NAME AT BIRTH
Separate all the vowels in your name.
(You can circle them, or write them out beneath where you wrote your full name).
Give each vowel it’s correlating number in numerology:
A = 1
E = 5
I = 9
O = 6
U = 3
And…Y = 7
Is Y a vowel or not?
You might have heard this little jingle about vowels, A-E-I-O-U and sometimes Y. Numerologists differ on whether Y is a vowel or not. In my opinion, it is ONLY when it is in between two consonants in the same syllable and NOT near a vowel.
For example, Y is a vowel in the names:
Jenny, Gwyneth, Lynne, Gerry, Tyrone, Henry, Bryan, Carolyn (in the names Bryan and Carolyn Y is considered a vowel because it is in a different syllable than the vowel next to it.
Add the numbers together, then keep reducing until you get a single digit.

48 reduces to 3 (4+8 = 12, and 1+2 = 3)
The Soul Urge Number for Lynne Gertrude Polly Wallingford is 3.
