Numerology and Names

  • Two, as it's the first multiple of one, represents pairs and harmony.

People with number two names are generally followers who are happy to keep the peace and are not very interested in power struggles. They are seekers of balance in their lives, are often artistic and exhibit a flare for imagination, but they can also be moody, self-conscious, dependent, and hypersensitive. These people are often artists, psychologists, authors, and even accountants and attorneys as they like to help others create solutions to their problems.

Two names that are currently popular include:

Girls Boys
Aisha Aidan
April Andrew
Calista Chance
Diana Collin
Hanna Corbett
Jade Dylan
Paige Jared
Rachel Lucas
Sarah Max
Tiffani Noah
  • Three is the number of the Trinity and is believed to indicate all stages of life – past, present, and future.

It's considered a lucky number, as many threes seem to have amazingly good fortune in their lives. People with number three names are often hardworking and ambitious and are motivated by accomplishment and success. Many of these people also have a deep need for expression and are exceptional communicators, finding their callings as entertainers, artists, business leaders, or politicians. On the downside, they can be quick to judge, boastful, dictatorial, and vain. Because they like to tackle many challenges at once, they can seem scatterbrained or unfocused.

Popular three names:

Girls Boys
Adelle Alec
Amber Alexander
Anna Barrett
Bethany Burke
Bryanna Dermot
Caitlyn Dillon
Claire Ethan
Mary James
Sara Jonah
Tia Leonardo
  • Think of the quality of a good foundation – four square corners, right? – and you'll have the basic quality of the number four.

This is the most solid number of them all, and people who have names with this number are solid, down-to-earth, and dependable as well. They're often the foundation upon which great companies and empires are built, as they're efficient, loyal, and organized, as well as very practical. They can also be overcautious and dull, and they're generally not very ambitious. With their love of structure, they tend to gravitate toward careers as architects, bankers, engineers, scientists, and mathematicians. When they make a career decision, they often stay with it for life.

Popular four names:

Girls Boys
Aliza Aaron
Annabel Bradley
Brena David
Cari Fraser
Emilia Jacob
Kara Jaedon
Kiara Jose
Kyla Kaleb
Tasha Kieran
Tiara Luke
