Below are hundreds of baby names with a numerological value of 5.
What do I mean by that?
Well, in numerology, you substitute each letter in a word with that letter’s ordinal value in the alphabet. (The letter B has a value of 2, for instance, because it’s the second letter.) Then you add those ordinal values together to come up with a total. Lastly, you add the digits of that total together to obtain a numerological value.
Here’s an example: The letters in the name Mia have the values 13, 9, and 1. Added together, these values equal 23. And the digits of 23 added together equal 5.
All of the “5” names below are sub-categorized by totals — just in case any of those larger numbers are significant to anyone. Within each group you’ll find some of the most popular “5” names per gender (according to the most recent set of U.S. baby name rankings).

Number 5: Meaning and Associations
What does the number five mean in numerology? Unfortunately, there’s no clear answer. Various numerological systems exist, and each one has its own interpretation of the number five.
That said, if we look at a couple of modern numerology/astrology websites, we see 5 being described as “freedom-loving,” “dynamic,” “adaptable,” “curious,” and “unpredictable.”
Personally, I prefer to look at associations, which are a bit more concrete. Here are some things that are associated with the number 5:
- High-five (hand gesture)
- Senses (sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing)
- Tastes (sweet, salty, sour, bitter, umami)
- Starfish (most starfish have 5 arms)
- Basketball (5 players per side)
- Olympic Games (symbolized by 5 interlocked rings)
- Greek classical elements (water, earth, air, fire, aether)
- Quintessence (refers to the fifth element, aether, which was a late addition to the list)
- Chinese traditional elements (water, fire, earth, wood, metal)
