Wicked Paralogos

Level 6 - abstract
Word: Onomancy
 
Origin: 
Obsolete French onomancie, from Middle French, irregular from Greek onoma name + Middle French -mancie -mancy.
Also, Onomancy comes from the Greek onoma, "name," and manteia, "prophecy."
 
Definition: 
Onomancy is an old-fashioned kind of fortune telling based on a person's name.
If three women with the same name sit at a table, one of them will be married within the year. 
The belief in a connection between luck and a person's name is an old one.
During the heyday of onomancy, a fortune teller might ascribe meaning to the number of vowels in your name or the total number of letters.
It was also common to give each letter a number value, and to add up the total number of a person's name.
