Below are hundreds of baby names with a numerological value of 8.
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 Leah have the values 12, 5, 1, and 8. Added together, these values equal 26. And the digits of 26 added together equal 8.
All of the “8” 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 “8” names per gender (according to the most recent set of U.S. baby name rankings).

Number 8: Meaning and Associations
What does the number eight mean in numerology? Unfortunately, there’s no clear answer. Various numerological systems exist, and each one has its own interpretation of the number eight.
That said, if we look at a couple of modern numerology/astrology websites, we see 8 being described as “successful,” “ambitious,” “organized,” “practical,” and “authoritative.”
Personally, I prefer to look at associations, which are a bit more concrete. Here are some things that are associated with the number 8:
- 8-bit computing
- 8-track cartridge
- Eight-ball (pool)
- Magic 8 Ball (fortune-telling toy)
- Figure 8
- Infinity symbol
- Analemma (diagram showing the position of the sun over the course of a year)
- Figure-eight knot
- Eight-ender (perfect score in the sport of curling)
