Love By Name has developed a compatibility matching system based on an ancient theory dating back 10,000 years.  The system is called Name Analysis and it works by reducing a person's name to numbers, exposing their true personality traits and assessing their suitability for a particular partner.  Your full name is key to the success of finding a compatible match through our Site as we match couples based on similar personality types.  You will need to read the following information carefully and to understand what we mean by the terminology 'Full Name'.  The information is quite straightforward but if this information is incorrect at the outset then the matches we offer you may not be compatible.

First Name

Use your first name exactly as it appears on your birth certificate/adoption certificate.  Use this name, regardless of whether you are called by this name now.  For example, you may prefer to be called by a middle name instead of your first name.  If you have changed your name by Deed Poll Certificate or Declaration with a Solicitor, then use your first name as it appears on the form.

Middle Name

Use your middle name(s) exactly as they appear on your birth certificate/adoption certificate.  Use all names, regardless of whether you usually use them.  For example, you may have middle names that you never use.  If you have changed your middle name(s) by Deed Poll Certificate or Declaration with a Solicitor, then use the middle name(s) as they appear on the form.  

Maiden Name

This section should only be completed if you are a woman and have been married/divorced or widowed and you are still using your married name.  For example, Susan Ann Jones marries Peter Smith.  Her full name is Susan Ann Jones Smith.  Peter and Susan divorce but Susan still uses her married last name/surname of Smith.  She will complete her profile like this: First name: SUSAN, maiden name; JONES; last name or surname SMITH.  If you have never married or you have reverted to your maiden name on separation/divorce, your last name or surname (usually called maiden name) should be entered in the 'Last name or Surname' box.

If a woman has legally changed her name by Deed Poll Certificate or Declaration via a Solicitor then there is no need to complete the maiden name box.  For example, Jane Edmonds Smith changed her name by Deed Poll Certificate to Janet White.  She will complete her profile as first name: JANET, last name/surname as WHITE.

Last Name or Surname

For Men - this is the last name or surname on your birth certificate/adoption certificate, or if you have changed your name by Deed Poll or Declaration at a Solicitor then this becomes the full name and there is no need to use any other name such as adoptive name or any previous last name or surname.

For Women - If you have been married and divorced/widowed once or more than once, use all your married names, unless you have reverted to your maiden name.  If you have changed your name by Deed Poll Certificate or Declaration with a Solicitor then this becomes your full name and there is no need to use any other name.
