Characteristics of Miracle
Etymology & Historical Origin - Miracle
The name Miracle comes from an English vocabulary word describing an extraordinary event believed to be caused by some form of divine intervention; an occurrence which appears to be contrary to the accepted laws of science and nature. The word is derived from the Latin “miraculum” meaning “wonder, marvel, amazement, surprise”. As a female given name, Miracle has been around for less than 20 years, influenced in part by the emergence of other vocabulary word names (Precious, Heaven, Destiny, Trinity etc). This is a name primarily used in the United States and generally among non-conformist or fundamental Christians. Miracle could be considered a modern update to traditional virtue names (Hope, Faith, Grace); and also a common choice among religiously minded parents who go through difficult pregnancies or childbirth. It’s one of those “ultimate statement” names.
Popularity of the Name Miracle
Miracle “miraculously” appeared on the American female naming charts for the first time in 1995 and showed promising advancements in usage for the first five or six years. The name went from complete obscurity to low-moderation in only a few short years. Then things cooled off. In the past five years, this name has been trending downwards, but not super aggressively. It’s also interesting that Miracle comes up as a Number Seven in numerology which is the “mystical” number. Coincidence? You decide. Vocabulary word names are extremely transparent by definition; there’s no uncertainty as to their meanings. Names such as Miracle speak loudly about the parents who choose them and make undeniable declarations regarding their values. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course, but we’re guessing subtlety is not one of your virtues. Miracle, Heaven, Cherish, Precious, Jewel, Diamond, Karma, Princess – these are all female names that don’t mess around. Some people find them cliché, but for many parents they are very real statements about how they feel about their daughters. And who can fault that? I mean, who doesn’t look down at their precious newborn baby and “marvel” at this little “miracle”?

Personality of the Girl Name Miracle
The number Seven personality is deeply mystical and highly in tune with their spirituality. They operate on a different wavelength than the average joe. Spending time alone comes easily to Sevens, as it gives them time to contemplate philosophical, religious and spiritual ideas in an effort to find "real truth". Sevens are wise, but often exude mystery as if they are tapped into something the rest of us don't understand. They love the outdoors and are fed by nature. Sevens are constantly seeking to understand human nature, our place in the universe, and the mystery of life in general. This makes them quite artistic and poetic, but they are also keen observers with high intellect - so they are equally scientific-minded. Sevens are charitable and care deeply about the human condition.
