Calculating a lucky number for Natalie

So the numbers for each letter of Natalie are:
First we add the digits of all the letters: 5+1+4+1+3+1+5 = 20
Which is still more than one digit
so we add the digits of 20: 2+0 = 2
Which gives Natalie a lucky number of two!
Calculating two digit lucky numbers for Natalie
The two digit lucky numbers for Natalie are those two digit numbers which when their digits are summed to give a single digit, give the lucky number (two) for the name.
Mathematically, this turns out to be the set of numbers less than 100 of the form L + 9n (where L is the lucky number and n is a natural number).
Algorithmically, this is:
for ( int i = luckynum + 9; i < 100; i += 9 )
print( i );
Which, for Natalie gives us: 11 20 29 38 47 56 65 74 83 92!
