I’m increasingly realizing that future parents are seeking the help of Numerology in order to choose the best name for their baby. As there are many doubts around this subject, it is worth clarifying the process of creation and analysis that involves this numerological work and presenting some tips.

I always tell parents who come to me that it is only possible to decide on the baby’s full name after they know the date of birth. After all, in the Infantile Map, we join the numbers obtained in the sum of the vowels of the complete name (Motivation Number), of the consonants (Impression Number), and of both (Expression Number), with the result originated from the sum and subtraction involving the day, month, and year of birth.

Of course, there is no cake recipe for the choice of a name. That is, a unique and simple rule to follow to identify when the exclusive Numerology of the full name will be in harmony with the symbolism of the date of birth. Because there are no wrong or good numbers, each numeric symbol has its positive and negative aspects. And what matters is to create a complete name that gives the basis for the date of birth. In what way? Some tips are easier to understand. Check below.


It is essential, for example, that in the first three positions of the Numerological Map – Motivation Number (sum of the vowels of the full name), Printing (sum of the consonants of the full name), and Expression (sum of all the letters of the full name) – there is at least one Number that repeats itself in the Challenges position. In this case, the child will have the potential and willingness to face and overcome the fears that the Numerological Challenges point out.


A=1 / J=1 / S=1
B=2 / K=11 / T=2
C=3 / L=3 / U=3
D=4 / M=4 / V=22
E=5 / N=5 / W=5
F=6 / O=6 / X=6
G=7 / P=7 / Y=7
H=8 / Q=8 / Z=8
I=9 / R=9

For example, if the child has the Challenges of numbers 2, 5, and 9, these same numbers must be found in the Motivation, Printing, or Expression positions. When this is not possible, the child must have some letter in their full name that corresponds to one of the numbers in the Challenge.

Those who have the Challenge of numbers 2, 5, and 9 must have the letters B, K, and T (represented by the number 2); E, N, and W (represented by the number 5) or R and I (represented by the number 9) in their full name. It is even better if one of these letters is in the baby’s first name. In the example given, the child could be called Teresa, for instance, since the letter T is equivalent to 2, present in her Challenge.


It is also perfect that the Number symbolized by the first letter and the first vowel of the name is the same as the sum of the Day, Month, and Year of birth (Potential Number). Thus, if a child was born on August 12, 2012, they have the Potential Number 7 (originated by the sum: 1+2+0+8+2+0+1+2 = 16. 1+6 = 7). In this case, it is worth having one of the letters of this symbolism, such as G, P, or Y (which are equivalent to the number 7) in the first letter of its name, as in the case of Geraldo, Pedro, Paula, or Yara.

This is valid because the first letter and the first vowel of the name represent instinctive reactions, behaviors more easily developed and expressed by us. In the example quoted, Potential Number 7 shows that the child will have as a lesson in life to develop the intellectual side, seeking the knowledge to become an expert in the subject that is dedicated in the future, including professionally. Having the letter G, P or Y (symbolism 7) in these positions makes the child naturally have this disposition. It will be a more harmonious search for the little one because he will naturally seek to deepen his studies of the subjects he likes to research.

In the same way, it is worthwhile that the Number of some Existential Lessons is the same as the first letter and the first vowel of the baby’s name. Let’s suppose that the child will have as Existential Lessons the numbers 2, 6, and 1. So, it is interesting that the first letter of his name is S (of symbolism 1), for example, and his first vowel is the letter O (of value 6). In this case, names that follow this orientation, like Solange or Soraia, can be good options.

This suggests that the child will have a greater predisposition to assimilate the learnings of two of his Lessons: the 1st and the 6th. After all, the first letter and vowel of the name portray instinctive reactions, habits, and ease of behaving according to the characteristics of the numbers that represent them.


baby names in numerologyOther precious information concerns having some symbol letters 7 (G, P or Y) and 8 (H, Q or Z) in the full name. Suppose it can be in the first name, even better, as in the case of Shirley, Sophia, etc. In any case, it is valid that the child has at least one of these letters in the full name or first name.

The number 7 represents the ability to get to know one another, while the number 8 indicates the ability to handle money and material and practical matters. The fact that the child has a letter of symbolic value of 7 and/or 8 reveals that it will be easier for them to observe and improve themselves (7), manage finances, and have material abundance (8).

Those who do not have these letters in their full name, when they go through a cycle symbolized by 7 or 8 (such as a Personal Year or Personal Quarter), need to make a more significant effort to live what they represent.

It is good to make it clear that there is no such thing as a perfect name, with a totally harmonious Numerology between the numbers of the full name and the date of birth. What we numerologists seek is as much harmony as possible.

If you have already registered your baby’s name and the child is between the ages of 0 and 12, there are many valuable strategies and tips to help your child overcome challenges and develop his or her potential.

How Can You Improve Intimacy in A Relationship?

Choosing a name for your baby is one of the most significant decisions you’ll make as a parent. Many parents turn to numerology to guide them in selecting a name that aligns with positive energies and favorable life paths. Numerology, the ancient study of numbers and their mystical significance, can provide profound insights into a baby’s potential traits, destiny, and future. Here’s how numerology can help you choose the perfect name for your child.

Understanding Numerology Basics

In numerology, each letter of the alphabet corresponds to a number from 1 to 9:

  • A, J, S = 1
  • B, K, T = 2
  • C, L, U = 3
  • D, M, V = 4
  • E, N, W = 5
  • F, O, X = 6
  • G, P, Y = 7
  • H, Q, Z = 8
  • I, R = 9

To determine the numerological value of a name, you simply add the numbers corresponding to each letter and reduce the total to a single digit. This single digit is the name number, which carries specific traits and influences.

Calculating Your Baby’s Name Number

For example, let’s calculate the name number for the name “Emma”:

  • E = 5
  • M = 4
  • M = 4
  • A = 1

Adding these together: 5 + 4 + 4 + 1 = 14. To reduce to a single digit, add 1 + 4 = 5. Thus, Emma’s name number is 5.

Interpreting Name Numbers

Each name number carries distinct characteristics:

  • 1: Leadership, independence, and ambition.
  • 2: Sensitivity, cooperation, and diplomacy.
  • 3: Creativity, socialization, and expression.
  • 4: Stability, practicality, and hard work.
  • 5: Adventure, change, and freedom.
  • 6: Nurturing, responsibility, and harmony.
  • 7: Introspection, spirituality, and wisdom.
  • 8: Power, material success, and efficiency.
  • 9: Compassion, humanitarianism, and idealism.

Matching Name Numbers with Life Path Numbers

For a more harmonious influence, parents often match the name number with the baby’s life path number. The life path number is derived from the baby’s birthdate. For example, if a baby is born on April 25, 2024, you would calculate the life path number as follows:

  • Birthdate: 04/25/2024
  • 0 + 4 + 2 + 5 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 4 = 19
  • 1 + 9 = 10
  • 1 + 0 = 1

This baby’s life path number is 1. Parents might choose a name that complements the leadership and independence of a life path number 1, such as names resulting in the numbers 1, 5, or 8, which resonate well with similar energies.

Selecting a Balanced Name

While the name number and life path number provide essential insights, balance is key. Consider combining names that balance each other’s energies. For instance, if your child’s life path number is intense (like 1 or 8), choosing a name with a softer, harmonious number (like 2 or 6) might create balance.

In conclusion, numerology offers a unique and insightful approach to choosing your baby’s name. By understanding the vibrational qualities of numbers, you can select a name that not only sounds beautiful but also aligns with positive energies and potentials for your child’s future. Whether you fully embrace numerology or use it as a supplementary guide, it can add a meaningful dimension to the joyful process of naming your baby.
