Using Zoopla, Rightmove and Google Maps, we located the top 10 most romantic street names across the UK in time for Valentine’s Day.

Ever since Biblical times and even before, letters could be switched for numbers in writing, to reveal to us the numerological value of words and names. Every personal moniker, town name and even everyday words would have a numerical value, based on the letters within that word. Exchanging letters for numbers and comparing words which carry the same values, was called Gematria, widely practiced in Kabbalah.
Nowadays we use slightly different letter numerology, albeit still rooted in this ancient mysticism.
Every name holds a specific energy, for example, there are names which are gentle, and those that are more upfront, and as we come up to Valentine’s, let’s not forget that there are also names that are romantic or passionate.
In the ancient art and science of Gematria, every Hebrew letter had a specific number up to 900. In modern numerology we only use the numbers 1-9. Therefore, A=1, B=2 and when we reach the 10th letter, J=1 again and so it continues. Once we’ve added up all the numbers, we take the sum amount, and add up all its digits again and again, eventually reaching one individual numeral, and that’s the word’s number, linking it with a planet, a colour and an energy.
Example: DATE STREET = (4+1+2+5+1+2+9+5+5+2=36) 3+6=9
