Editorial Reviews

Review

By: Old Soul on Amazon
 
This book posits the science of "Neimology, the study of names" and is ground-breaking, of potentially historic importance, and it affords broad-spectrum practical application. The empirical research and experience behind it has substantial credibility.

Susi Wong: I had never heard of such a thing until the author went around the room uncovering personality types based just on their name. It was amazing. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't been there to listen how accurately she spelled it out. I find myself "testing" this theory. I think it's amazing.

Linda Malhoyt: Reading this book was an amazing discovery. A door opening to a knowledge that can change the way you live, the way you understand people, the way you interact with people. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Author

For all of us who find it difficult to interact with strangers, or who are not very good at using discernment when first meeting someone, knowing about someone when you first meet them is a life-saver. Neimology Science does just that; it allows us access to how a person thinks, behaves and feels, as well as their learning style, communication style and what kind of gifts they like.  Knowing Neimology Science allows us to feel comfortable in new situations with new people immediately as it gives us information about others solely based on the placement of the letters in their name.  --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This book posits the science of "Neimology, the study of names" and is ground-breaking, of potentially historic importance, and it affords broad-spectrum practical application. The empirical research and experience behind it has substantial credibility.

The notion behind the research and this book is that a person's oft-repeated name is initially inspired, releasing a resonance and predictable potential within the person's life expression. The author systematizes how people with names bearing the same initial vowel, initial letter, last letter and middle letters show consistent tendencies. Hence, the resonance of the name demonstrates correlated patterns of conduct due to the structure of the name. This observation is consistent with the ancient knowledge of most cultures' approach to naming children, where the given name "says it all." Offering this as a framework for decoding, she does not, for example, clam that every "John" will be the same, but that every "John" will share certain traits. Her system explains how and why these traits will be distinct from those shared by persons named Jemal, or James, or Jim. The resulting correlations are nuanced and valuable. Socially, this book can help make interaction with friends and strangers alike far more effortless and productive.

Unlike common "cookbook" approaches that merely share the meanings of names, the Wyeth system explores the personality traits associated to vowels and consonants, with interpretive weight given to their placement in the name. She enriches the reader with a systematic exploration and many illustrations. The reader is thus equipped with an interpretive framework applicable to any name.

Sharon's system is fascinating. As one who enjoys astrology, numerology, and other forms of gaining insight into myself and others, I am excited to have another tool. Even by just using one letter of a name, it can be used quickly and easily to get an accurate assessment of whomever I encounter. She was right on target for me, my sons, and others in my life. Test it for yourself and see.

I started using the information in this book right away. As a spa manager, I see what staff members make natural leaders, who works well with who and how to best communicate and inspire my crew. I have also found information about myself and that was a real eye opener! One of the most unique books on human nature. I love it!

THis book is amazing. I found wealth of knowledge which is useful and helpful in everfyday life. Knowing and understanding someone's name sets the parameters of expectations. Once you decode the name, you will never be disappointed. Use it to dating or other partnerships. Highly recommended addition to your library.

Format: Paperback
They say that with knowledge comes power. The knowledge I gained from this new understanding of names provided me with a new power to proactively work with people. I can now come from the viewpoint of understanding what drives them at their core, rather than ignorantly misunderstanding their motives.

I am not only lucky enough to have a copy of this book at my fingertips, but have had the pleasure of speaking with the author on several occasions. What I learned from her with regard to some of the names in my family was nothing short of eye opening! It shed a new light on the family dynamics and unanticipated viewpoints and attitudes that were shockingly revealed in a peak time of family stress. Had I not understood what was going on in the background, as was clearly pointed out by Sharón Lynn Wyeth's analysis of those names, I would have never understood how to deal with the situation constructively!

If you are in sales, this book will provide a wealth of information on how to increase your sales simply by knowing how to effectively work with a client based on their name. Page 83 starts an excellent section on how to win over different buyers based on the first vowel in their name. Do you know how to properly "treat" an "A" person, and how would that be different for an "E" person? What would it cost you in wasted time, money, and frustration if you got it wrong? Buy this book, apply it, and watch your in-person sales soar!

Once in a while a book comes along that makes you have to stop and think about your life. And this is one of those books. The content is incredible. "How can she know all this?" you ask as you test the author's guidelines with names of people you know and see how the tenet's are on the mark. And then of course you can go from there, and learn about people at work, or why they are so insane in government, or find out about someone you want to date. Simply marvelous and so much fun. Beware though, after you tell your friends about this book, you will be hounded with requests to borrow it [makes a good gift though if you don't like to lend out books]. Enjoy. Enjoy.

More About the Author

Sharón graduated from the University of Redlands with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics at the age of twenty. She began teaching that same year in a public Junior High School in California. During her three years there, she obtained her Master of Arts degree from Azusa-Pacific University in education administration with an emphasis in math.

Sharón initially taught in California before moving to Germany where she taught for the Department of Defense Schools. She continued to move around as she married an Air Force soldier. She was fortunate to always find a teaching job in each location. After Germany came Texas, and then Japan. Eventually she would also teach in New Mexico, Nebraska, Washington state and China, besides being a high school administrator in both Texas and Oregon. She retired as a high school principal in 2002, only to come out of retirement in January 2008 to become involved in schools for an additional two and a half years.

It was during her time in the schools that she linked the patterns in names to a person's mindset or personality. She worked on figuring out the patterns of the different letters for fifteen years before she fully comprehended all of the nuances. Sharón took the opportunity to travel a large part of the world testing her theories for the first three years after leaving the education field. Many people requested that she write a book so that they could learn what she had realized about names.

It was during this time that she wrote "Know the Name; Know the Person", with the first edition being published in December 2006. The second edition, published in May 2010, added chapters on mnemonic devices to help people remember the patterns explained in the book and also how to compare two names. She is currently working on the third edition. She is also is working on her second book which combines story telling with logic to challenge people to think again about some commonly accepted beliefs that may no longer be serving us. Since the publication of her book, she focuses her time writing, traveling and sharing Neimology with others, and researching her theories.
