ABOUT THE BOOK
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Having a value of one hundred, Peter's name is associated with material wealth in a big way. Peter is likely to make his money through skill and hard work rather than by luck or good fortune. He is particularly suited to industries that are in some way connected to the spoken or written word, such as journalism or publishing. As well as being extremely well heeled, Peter is blessed with high intelligence. There are many people who make their way in business on the basis of gut instinct, but Peter prefers to use his admirable analytical skills to make his personal fortune grow. A cultured man, Peter will invest heavily in his own education and will continue to have a real thirst for knowledge well into his old age. Peter's only negative trait is his vengeful streak; if he is slighted either in business or in his relationships, he will carry the desire for revenge any number of years until he finally gets satisfaction.
Since Peter's name contains both air and water elements, he develops a rapport with people easily and has a good, chatty conversational style. He's fun on the dance floor because of the Ehwaz rune of movement in his name. Teiwaz, the warrior rune, makes Peter bold and self-assured and able to love deeply. Peter can be very tender. Raido, the rune of journey, combined with Perth, the rune of initiation, signifies that Peter voyages to great heights of brilliance and calls attention to himself by his remarkable achievements.

Many men named Peter feel that they have a special mission in life--and they are right. Two words dominate the vibrations of this name, and these are "I am." Peter has a distinct sense of himself, his own uniqueness, and his own identity. But with what is he identifying? The answer to this question will determine Peter's destiny and the fulfillment of his mission. If his "I am" is the desires of his lower self, then Peter will be a very egocentric and self-centered human being. If his identification with "I am" is more spiritual and transcendental in nature, then Peter will be a very inspirational man, one to whom many will look for guidance and support.
DERIVATION: English, German, and Scandinavian, from the Greek petros, meaning "stone." The name of one of Christ's Apostles, regarded as a cofounder of the Christian Church. Became popular in the United States around 1930.
