The I-Ching is so difficult to understand on how it really works. Basically, the I Ching is the understanding the universe (philosophy), and self (psychology).

To keep it simple, here are the lucky numbers. The lucky numbers are 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 24, 25, 29, 31, 32, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 45, 47, 48, 52, 57, 63, 65, 67, 68, 73, and 81. There are also fair numbers. The fair numbers are 38, 51, 55, 58, 61, 71, 72, 75, 77, and 78.

The lucky numbers represent the number of letters in the name. For example, Allister is a 8 letter last name. You may not have any control on the middle and last name. As you can see, the number 8 is a lucky number.

Another example, Christophe is 10 letter middle name. As you can see, the number 10 is not a lucky number. However, the whole name can still be a lucky name if the whole name meets some number conditions.

The four number conditions are first name + 1, first name + middle name, middle name + last name, and first name + middle name + last name. The total number of letters must be a lucky number.

For example, the first name is Adrian which is a 5 letter first name. As you can see, the number 5 is a lucky number. Let us see if the whole name is lucky. First name + 1 add up to 6 which is a lucky number. First name (5) + middle name (10) add up to 15 which is a lucky number. Middle name (10) + last name (8) add up to 18 which is a lucky number. First name + middle name + last name add up to 23 which is also a lucky number.

Adrian passes the four number conditions. You can say that Adrian is a lucky name for Allister. The whole name comes to Adrian Mackenzie Allister. It sounds pretty good too.
