Simply put, numerology is the study of numbers. It is believed that there is a unique relationship between numbers and all objects in the universe. Every number has certain meanings associated with it, and this is what numerologists study. But what has this got to do with your baby’s name? Well, as per numerologists, the number value of your baby’s name can actually play a significant role in his future life, career and relationships!

We take a lot of factors into account when we name our baby. Our religious roots, our likes and dislikes, our ancestors and hereditary links – everything comes into the picture. And then again, some of us simply go with a name that sounds just right to us.

However, numerology is one branch of science that correlates every decision and every situation with numbers. As per this science, the number value of your baby’s name can have long-lasting repercussions on his future life.
