What Does “4” Mean?

First, we’ll look at the significance assigned to “4” by two different numerological sources. Second, and more importantly, ask yourself if “4” or any of the intermediate numbers above have any special significance to you.

Numerological Attributes

“4” (the tetrad) according to the Pythagoreans:

  • “Anatolius reports that it is called ‘justice,’ since the square (i.e., the area) […] is equal to the perimeter”
  • “It is the prerequisite of the general orderliness of the universe, so they everywhere called it a ‘custodian of Nature.'”
  • “Everything in the universe turns out to be completed in the natural progression up to the tetrad”
  • “The tetrad is the first to display the nature of solidity: the sequence is point, line, plane, solid (i.e. body).”
  • Examples of things that are divided into four parts:
    • “four traditional seasons of the year — spring, summer, autumn and winter.”
    • “four elements (fire, air, water and earth)”
    • “four cardinal points”
    • “four distinguishing points – ascendant, descendant, mid-heaven and nadir”
    • “Some say that all things are organized by four aspects – substance, shape, form and principle.”

“4” according to Edgar Cayce:

  • “In four, it makes for the greater weaknesses in the divisions…four being more of a division and weakness” (reading 261-15).
  • “In four, we find that of a division – and while a beauty in strength, in the divisions also makes for the greater weakness” (reading 5751-1).
Personal/Cultural Significance

Does “4” — or do any of the other numbers above (e.g., 22, 49, 76, 103) — have any special significance to you?

Think about your own preferences and personal experiences: lucky numbers, birth dates, music, sports, and so on. Maybe your favorite football team is the San Francisco 49ers, for example.

Also think about associations you may have picked up from your culture, your religion, or society in general.

If you have any interesting insights about the number 4, or any of the other numbers above, please leave a comment!

Poll Results – Favorite Spellings are Hailey, Hayley, Haley

More than half of the 325 people who voted in the “Hailey” poll liked either Hailey or Hayley more than other spelling variations of the name:

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this outcome is that the top three names all happen to end in -ey. Do you think that’s the key to their appeal?

UPDATE, 11/2013: The first Hailey poll closed a long time ago, but I’ve just opened up a second one – go vote!

Sophia Tops Emily – Adjusting the Most Popular U.S. Baby Names

The Social Security Administration doesn’t combine spelling variations when compiling its annual list of popular baby names. Though this is probably the most logical way for them to present their data, it tends to skew the overall picture a bit.

For instance, according to the SSA, the top ten girl names in 2007 were Emily, Isabella, Emma, Ava, Madison, Sophia, Olivia, Abigail, Hannah and Elizabeth (in that order). If we account for spelling variations, though, the top ten is more like:

1st Sophia (16,804)
Sofia (5,974)
22,778 (1.0930%)
2nd Emily (19,105)
Emely (1,011)
Emilee (782)
Emilie (507)
Emmalee (368)
21,773 (1.0447%)
3rd Isabella (18,874)
Izabella (1,475)
Isabela (625)
20,974 (1.0064%)
4th Madison (17,731)
Madyson (898)
Maddison (854)
Madisyn (843)
20,326 (0.9754%)
5th Olivia (16,329)
Alivia (1,628)
Alyvia (276)
18,233 (0.8748%)
6th Emma (18,127) 18,127 (0.8698%)
7th Ava (17,865) 17,865 (0.8572%)
8th Abigail (15,292)
Abbigail (648)
Abigayle (313)
Abagail (309)
Abigale (279)
16,841 (0.8081%)
9th Brianna (8,741)
Briana (2,781)
Breanna (2,455)
Bryanna (703)
Breana (299)
14,979 (0.7186%)
10th Addison (11,823)
Addyson (1,368)
Addisyn (488)
Adyson (455)
Adison (395)
14,529 (0.6971%)

And this doesn’t account for several things:

  • Eva could be seen as a form of Ava. That would bring Ava/Eva up to 4th place.
  • Hailey, the 23rd most popular girl name, can also be spelled Hailee, Hailie, Haylee, Hayley, Haylie and Hayleigh. If you throw in Haley and Haleigh as well, that brings the entire name group up to 8th place. (I tend to pronounce these last two more like Halle/Hallie, though, so I didn’t do it that way.)
