My mom is a numerologist - and naturally, is all into doing the numerology on the names which we've chosen for our pending sproutling. So, yesterday when I spoke to her, she was VERY vehemant about changing our girl name in some way (Molly Skye) as the final numbers have really negative connotations. And negative connotations that have repeated themselves within our family (with my dad and his dad...) that basically end up having a bottom line of early organ failure. Which is (obviously) not great, and, something I just went through with my dad. Bleah.<br><br>
I'm on the fence with the numerology thing. Often I see a sound reason in the readings she gets from her charts. But, there's the skeptic in me, of course, who is all attached to the name that we've already picked and been referring to the baby as.<br><br>
I feel weird about changing it, but I also now can't seem to shake the doom-and-gloom thing that's been attached to it. I talked with my (very kind at indulging me) Hub about making it Moll<i>ie</i> Skye last night, and he wasn't against it, but it's just .. Well, I don't know. Like I said, I'm on the fence.<br><br>
What to do?!<br><br>
Maybe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/baby.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="baby"> will be a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/babyboy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Babyboy">: after all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> That would solve it, right?

I'm no numerology expert (or believer for that matter), but you could always drop the "e" on Skye or lengthen it to Skylar if that helps with the numbers.<br><br>
If your mom's anything like mine, she'll keep worrying if you "put that burden" on your baby.<br><br>
But then again, I think numerology/ astrology is more fun & coincidental than a determining path. So, I'd still say it's up to you.

Ugh. That's the WORST kind of numerology. The future is never set in stone.<br><br>
I had a friend who got into astrology pretty hardcore right before my wedding. She tried to convince me that I needed to change my wedding date (after the deposit had already been paid) b/c there were some dire Saturn aspects to that date that were going to cause the marriage to fail. I basically told her, no way. If there are bad aspects, we will work through them. Life isn't perfect and getting through adversity is part of what makes us who we are.<br><br>
My mom, who's a professional astrologer (as opposed to my friend, who was a newbie) agreed with me.<br><br>
HTH!

I'm not into numerology, although I did do some online thing a few months ago in a big fit of procrastination and did my name and my dd1's name. So I can see how it would be interesting as it applies to personality types and such. But if you're talking specifically about changing the name to avoid health issues, remember that good old fashioned genetics are going to play a big role in that, too. If it makes you feel better, change the spelling (you have lots of options there) and then teach her to take good care of her health. Big hugs, as I know this is an emotional time for your whole family on so many levels.

Can't really say I'm into numerology either so I'm no help there. I like what the PPs had to say. Did you guys come to a decision yet anathea?
