Massachusetts quadruplets: Chesley, Chatham, Chance, Cheston

kinderfest

In July of 2022, quadruplets in the form of two sets of identical twins were born to Ashley Ness of Taunton, Massachusetts.

The two girls were named Chesley and Chatham, and the two boys were named Chance and Cheston.

Why did Ashley choose four names starting with “Ch”?

Family tradition. After Ashley’s sister gave her three children Ch-names, Ashley followed suit by naming her now 8-year-old daughter Chanel.

And then, when I found out I was having four, I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m not changing it now.’ It was very challenging, though, to find four names.

I wonder if Chatham’s name was inspired by the Cape Cod town of Chatham (pronounced CHAT-um). If so, she has something in common with Michael J. Fox’s daughter Aquinnah, who was named after the Martha’s Vineyard town of Aquinnah.

What are your thoughts on these names? Which one do you like best?

Numerology: Baby names with a value of 7

Baby names with a numerological value of 7

If you’re on the hunt for baby names with a numerological value of 7, you’re in luck! Because today’s post features hundreds of 7-names.

Before we get to the names, though — how do we know that they’re “sevens” in numerology?

Turning names into numbers

Here’s how to calculate the numerological value of a name.

First, for each letter, come up with a number to represent that letter’s position in the alphabet. (Letter A would be number 1, letter B would be number 2, and so forth.) Then, add all the numbers together. If the sum has two or more digits, add the digits together recursively until the result is a single digit. That single digit is the name’s numerological value.

For instance, the letters in the name Victoria correspond to the numbers 22, 9, 3, 20, 15, 18, 9, and 1. The sum of these numbers is 97. The digits of 97 added together equal 16, and the digits of 16 added together equal 7 — the numerological value of Victoria.

Number 7: Significance and associations

What does the number seven mean in numerology?

There’s no definitive answer, unfortunately, because various numerological systems exist, and each one has its own interpretation of the number seven. That said, if we look at a couple of modern numerology/astrology websites, we see 7 being described as “truth-seeking,” “introspective,” “intellectual,” “reserved,” and “unusual.”

We can also look at associations, which are a bit more concrete. Here are some things that are associated with the number 7:

  • Rainbow (7 colors)
  • Continents
  • Week (7 days)
  • Major scale in music (7 notes)
  • Seven Wonders of the World
  • Pleiades (7 sister-nymphs of Greek mythology)
  • Classical planets (sun, moon, Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Saturn)
  • Metals of antiquity (gold, silver, copper, tin, lead, iron, mercury)
