Numerology: Baby names with a value of 2

Baby names with a numerological value of 2

If you’re on the hunt for baby names with a numerological value of 2, you’re in luck! Because today’s post features hundreds of 2-names.

Before we get to the names, though — how do we know that they’re “twos” 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 Aurora correspond to the numbers 1, 21, 18, 15, 18, and 1. The sum of these numbers is 74. The digits of 74 added together equal 11, and the digits of 11 added together equal 2 — the numerological value of Aurora.

Number 2: Significance and associations

What does the number two mean in numerology?

There’s no definitive answer, unfortunately, because various numerological systems exist, and each one has its own interpretation of the number two. That said, if we look at a couple of modern numerology/astrology websites, we see 2 being described as “diplomatic,” “cooperative,” “peaceful,” “gentle,” and “understanding.”

We can also look at associations, which are a bit more concrete. Here are some things that are associated with the number 2:

  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Lungs
  • Chopsticks
  • Knitting needles
  • Complementary pairings (e.g., pen and paper, bow and arrow, peanut butter and jelly)
  • Dualities (e.g., day and night, yin and yang, war and peace)
  • Boxing (2 competitors; 2 fists)
  • Partner dancing
  • DNA double helix

What does the number 2 mean to you? What are your strongest associations with the number?

Where did the baby name Khaza come from?

Kevin Gates' song "Khaza" (2015)
Kevin Gates single

Baton Rogue-based rapper Kevin Gates and his wife Dreka have two children: daughter Islah (pronounced ees-lah), born in late 2012, and son Khaza, born in mid-2014.

Both of their names have been featured in Kevin’s music recently. As a result, both names have also seen a relatively steep rise in usage recently.

In May of 2015, Gates released the song “Khaza” [vid]. The same year, the baby name Khaza was the 2nd-highest-rising boy name of 2015 (after Rhydian). Usage was largely in the South.

  • 2017: 72 baby boys (and 10 baby girls) named Khaza
    • 13 in LA, 9 in GA, 7 in TX, 6 in TN, 5 in AL (56%)
  • 2016: 77 baby boys (and 6 baby girls) named Khaza
    • 18 in TX, 11 in LA, 7 in AL, 6 in GA, 6 in FL, 6 in NC, 5 in TN (77%)
  • 2015: 34 baby boys named Khaza
    • 8 in TX, 6 in LA (41%)
  • 2014: 6 baby boys named Khaza [debut]
  • 2013: unlisted

I’m not certain where the name comes from, but my wild guess is that it’s based on the Quranic word khaza’in, which means “treasures” in Arabic. (Gates is a practicing Muslim.)

Kevin Gates' album "Islah" (2016)

In January of 2016, after releasing various mixtapes and singles, Gates finally put out his first studio album, Islah. Music magazine Spin called it “the most balanced Kevin Gates project to date.” The same year, the baby name Islah was the 2nd-highest-rising girl name of 2016 (after Kehlani).

  • 2017: 58 baby girls named Islah
    • 9 in FL, 8 in TX
  • 2016: 48 baby girls (and 5 baby boys) named Islah
    • 8 in CA, 8 in TX
  • 2015: 8 baby girls named Islah
  • 2014: unlisted
  • 2013: unlisted

In this case I can tell you precisely where the name came from, because Gates talked about it in several interviews. Here’s how he defined the album title for HotNewHipHop in late 2015:

To reform, to improve, to make better. And I believe that’s what my first daughter did to me, so I named my first album after my first daughter. Because it improved me, it made me better.

And that’s exactly what the Arabic word islah means: “to improve, to better, to put something into a better position.”

Which baby name do you like more, Khaza or Islah? Would you use either one?
