Girl Baby Names Using Name Numerology

User Rating: / 15

There is a method of baby-naming based on the study of numbers known as numerology and many parents are using name numerology to pick the perfect girl baby name. If you’re mathematically inclined, notice and appreciate a repetitive pattern of numbers in your life, or take stock in the mystical system of numerology, consider the following naming methods for your baby girl.

There are different types of numerology. The most helpful for baby-naming purposes includes calculating numerology based on number values assigned to the letters of the alphabet.

When the letters of your little girl’s full birth name (first, middle, and last -- no nicknames) are added together (and added, and added, until you have only one digit), they create what is known in numerology as the “destiny” or “expression” number. The destiny number is meant to symbolize a person’s potential in life – who they will be, what they will achieve, and what opportunities will be available to them, all because of the birth name given to them by their parents. 

Here are the number values assigned to each letter of the alphabet:

1 – A, J, S

2 – B, K, T

3 – C, L, U

4 – D, M, V

5 – E, N, W

6 – F, O, X

7 – G, P, Y

8 – H, Q, Z

9 – I, R

When the letters of your little girl’s full birth name (first, middle, and last -- no nicknames) are added together (and added, and added, until you have only one digit), they create what is known in numerology as the “destiny” or “expression” number. The destiny number is meant to symbolize a person’s potential in life – who they will be, what they will achieve, and what opportunities will be available to them, all because of the birth name given to them by their parents.

Here’s a formula that demonstrates how to reach the destiny number for the full name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga):

Stefani: 1 + 2 + 5 + 6 + 1 + 5 + 9 =29; 2+9 =11; 1+1= 2

Joanne: 1 + 6 + 1 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 23; 2+3= 5

Angelina: 1 + 5 + 7 + 5 + 3 + 9 + 5 + 1 = 36; 3+6= 9

Germanotta: 7 + 5 + 9 + 4 + 1 + 5 + 6 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 42; 4+2=  6

2 + 5 + 9 + 6 = 22; 2+2=  4

The destiny number for Lady Gaga’s full birth name is 4.

Numerology and Personality Traits


There is also a relationship between a name’s destiny number and certain personality traits. This can sometimes complicate matters. The behaviors associated with particular numbers may have you and your partner rushing back to the drawing board looking for a more fitting name for your little lady. The numbers and traits loosely correspond as follows:

1Ambitious, self-sufficient, creative.

2 – Supportive, analytical, courteous.

3 – Enthusiastic, optimistic, persuasive.

4 – Traditional, serious, hard-working.

5 – Adventurous, flexible, clever.

6 – Responsible, careful, loving.

7 – Spiritual, eccentric, introverted, observant.

8 – Money-oriented, decisive, stern, practical.

9 – Multi-talented, compassionate, idealistic.

11 – Enlightened, intense, high-strung.

22 – Goal-oriented, a leader, balanced.

The numbers 11 and 22 are also on this list since they are known as “master numbers” in numerology. If a destiny number adds up to 11 or 22, it means the name has two sets of numerology – the double digits can be reduced to 2 (1 + 1) or 4 (2 + 2), or they can remain as double digits. The significance here is that the numerology of the person who holds a name with this destiny can be read in two ways – which just means more room to grow, live, and achieve.

Going back to the earlier example of Lady Gaga’s destiny number of 4, it corresponds with personality traits such as traditional, serious, hard-working, and determined. Hmm… you can decide if that’s accurate or not!

Naming Your Child’s Destiny

Now that you know how to calculate numerology, and know the meanings behind the numbers, you can get into even more detailed calculations to create a specific numerology for your newborn daughter.

Since you already know what your child’s last name will be, some numerologists suggest settling on a first name that you love and then fitting in a middle name that will add up to the desired destiny number. For example, if your last name is Smith and you plan to name your daughter Chloe, what kind of middle name can you give her to add up to your desired destiny number of 5?

Because the numerology for Chloe is 7 and the numerology for Smith is 6, you’re already up to a total of 13 which gets reduced to a numerology of 4. If you want Chloe’s destiny number to be 5, then you need to select a middle name with a numerology of 1 so that, when combined with the numbers of her first and last names (1 + 4 = 5), will equal a total of 5. The name Marie would fit perfectly (4 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 5 = 28 =10 =1).

Ultimately, every name has multiple meanings – whether derived from Biblical passages, cultural traditions, or numerology. It’s how you raise your daughter, in combination with the name you give her, that will truly determine her destiny.
