Numerology is a more than 2500 years old knowledge that was already used in ancient cultures in Egypt. Numerology is more established in China than in most countries.

When you have all the numbers for the letters in a name, add them all together. James Bay is 1 + 1 + 4 + 5 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 7 = 22. If your result is a double digit, then you add the individual digits together. So in our example 2 + 2 = 4. The numerological value of the name James Bay is 4. The name number is 4.
