New Identity

Last night I woke up with the thought that my identity has changed and I need a new name.   But I didn't want anything dramatically different, more of a shift than a severing.  While I love the inclusion of "joy" in my name, I've never quite liked Joyce.  Nor did I care much for my middle name, Ann.  Being an avid fan of Anne of Green Gables, I always felt short-changed with the lack of the ending "e."  For a couple of sleepless hours, my mind played with possibilities and finally decided it liked the sound of the fusion of the two.  But there were many possibilities in this shift.  I could drop all the various last names I've used and become a single name identity, or I could spell the fusion in different ways ... Joyceann, Joysann, Joyzann.

Since I've done some work with a numerologist recently, I decided to check some of the possibilities both with my last name or without.  The only one that gave me an identity that invited me to live in the direction of self-expression and joy was Joyceann Wycoff ... so this is my new identity and the numerology description for this new identity is below.  If you'd like to check your own possibilities, click here.

You entered: joyceann wycoff  There are 14 letters in your name.
Those 14 letters total to 66
There are 4 vowels and 10 consonants in your name.
Your number is: 3

The characteristics of #3 are: Expression, verbalization, socialization, the arts, the joy of living.
The expression or destiny for #3:An Expression of 3 produces a quest for destiny with words along a variety of lines that may include writing, speaking, singing, acting or teaching; our entertainers, writers, litigators, teachers, salesmen, and composers. You also have the destiny to sell yourself or sell just about any product that comes along. You are imaginative in your presentation, and you may have creative talents in the arts, although these are more likely to be latent. You are an optimistic person that seems ever enthusiastic about life and living. You are friendly, loving and social, and people like you because you are charming and such a good conversationalist. Your ability to communicate may often inspire others. It is your role in life to inspire and motivate; to raise the spirits of those around you.
The negative side of number 3 Expression is superficiality. You may tend to scatter your forces and simply be too easygoing. It is advisable for the negative 3 to avoid dwelling on trivial matters, especially gossip.

Your Soul Urge number is: 9
A Soul Urge number of 9 means:  With a 9 Soul Urge, you want to give to others, usually in a humanitarian or philanthropic manner. You are highly motivated to give friendship, affection and love. And you are generous in giving of your knowledge and experience. You have very sharing urges, and you are likely to have a great deal to share. Your concern for others makes you a very sympathetic and generous person with a sensitive and compassionate nature.

You are able to view life in very broad and intuitive terms. You often express high ideals and an inspirational approach to life. If you are able to fully realize the potential of your motivation, you will be a very self-sacrificing person who is able to give freely without being concerned about any return or reward.

As with all human beings, you are prone to sometimes express the negative attitudes inherent to your Soul Urges. You may become too sensitive and tend to express emotions strongly at times. There can be significant conflict between higher aims and personal ambitions. You may resent the idea of giving all of the time and, in fact, if there is too much 9 energy in your nature you may reject the idea. You may often be disappointed in the lack of perfection in yourself and others.

Your Inner Dream number is: 3
An Inner Dream number of 3 means:

You dream of artistic expression; writing, painting, music. You would seek to more freely express your inner feeling and obtain more enjoyment from life. You also dream of being more popular, likable, and appreciated.


  1. Joyceann -- I am so very pleased to meet you!

    we did not give my daughter Liseeanne the e at the end of her name. She promptly added it as soon as she could -- at about grade 2. She's had the e ever since:)

    I like Joyceann -- particularly what it adds up to -- and in 'real life' it adds up to an amazing woman!


  2. Ha! I am quite fond of my e, it makes me fancy...

  3. Well, my middle name begins with an "E"; I only use "E.", never the name itself.

    Joyceann, you have an amazing profile.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this link; it was fascinating to read my results!

    And my FIRST name, my given name, which I dropped when I married, begins with E.

    For what it's worth...

  5. Thanks for sharing this link with me. I enjoyed learning about your process of choosing your identity for the next phase of your life journey. I also couldn't resist checking out both of my family names in combination with my first and middle names. Each of the last names, my birth name and adopted last name, provided the two halves of my personality and desires. Both names came up with the inner dream number of 11 which means "You dream of casting the light of illumination; of being the true idealist. You secretly believe there is more to life than we can know or prove, and you would like to be provider of the 'word' from on high."
    Pretty interesting, huh?

  6. Andrea ... love your numerology message ... it's definitely you!!
