If in a worldwide patent application I wanted to create a significant number (e.g. a spouse’s birthday/ wedding anniversary) would I be able to request that number or are the numbers randomly generated. I.e. If I would like my patent number to be WO2020051598A1 would this be possible?). Thank you for your time.

    I can't be authoritative, but I believe the WO number is simply the year followed by a sequential number. Thus there is no way to get your desired number. – Eric S Jul 29 '20 at 14:07

It is sequential and there is no way to get a specific number.
