Below are hundreds of baby names with a numerological value of 6.
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 Ian have the values 9, 1, and 14. Added together, these values equal 24. And the digits of 24 added together equal 6.
All of the “6” 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 “6” names per gender (according to the most recent set of U.S. baby name rankings).
The letters in the following baby names add up to 6.

If your due date is December 21, why not commemorate the date with an “end of the world”-inspired baby name?
No, I’m not suggesting you go with something ridiculous like Armageddon or Apocalypse. (Though I have seen both used as names. Examples: Armageddon James Margerum, born in England in 1833, and Ulysses Apocalypse Johnson, born in California in 1992.)
Instead, try a name with a less obvious “end of the world” connection. Perhaps one of these:
Maya – the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is most commonly associated with the Maya
Jeremiah – inspired by Maya
Nehemiah – inspired by Maya
Deedee – short for doomsday
Ann – short for annihilation
Catherine – inspired by cataclysm
Calypso – inspired by apocalypse
Arma – short for armageddon
Armand – inspired by armageddon
Armando – inspired by armageddon
Gideon – inspired by armageddon
Don – short for armageddon
Or try one of the dozens of names that happen to contain the word “end” (short for “end of the world,” of course).
What other “end of the world” baby names can you think of?
A reader named Marg is expecting her second child (gender unknown) and would like some name suggestions. Her first is a boy named Liam Isaac. She says:
For a girls name I am really loving the name Eden, but don’t have a middle name for it yet?
But its really with the boys names that we are stuck. We live in Canada, but both come from families that have immigrated from Holland, and the dutch culture is a big part of our family and our traditions. We actually named Liam after my Opa, William, but wanted to shorten it to Liam.
Anyway, all that to say that we do like some Dutch names, such as Johan (which is already taken by a family member) Hendrik (ditto) and Theo. Theo we both actually REALLY like but it reminds us of two people that we really are not big fans of, and we’re not sure we can get over that.
My first thought was: Don’t give up on Theo! Not-so-hot name associations can sometimes be overridden when you give the name to a baby (who will mean a lot more to you than those two other people combined–a much stronger association). Doesn’t work for everyone, but has worked for some.
Because Liam is a take on William, maybe Henry for Hendrik, or Hans for Johan? I think “Liam and Henry” is especially cute.
Here are a few other boy names that might work (many are also found in Dutch):
Adam Alexander/Alex Benjamin Caleb Felix Gabriel Jacob Jonas Joseph Max
Nathan Nicholas Noah Owen Paul Philip/Filip Robert/Robin Samuel Simon Thomas
As far as middles for Eden go, I think I’d opt for something decidedly feminine:
