I have to agree with Brian, it's a long shot; however, you might uncover a way by reviewing this City of Fremont website:

"Addressing & Street Names"

Keep in mind that your house number is not just registered with the city and county and cross-indexed with your APN and more so your friends can find your house … it’s also nationally listed with:

• City and County emergency responders and the 911 emergency system
• Governmental agencies such as the FBI and IRS
• The Postal Service and all related delivery companies (UPS, Fedex, etc.)
• ALL GPS data worldwide

You get the idea …

Hi kwangsadirdja,
The city of Fremont says "Unless the address impedes emergency service response, an
existing address (regardless if the number was newly assigned) will not
be reassigned a new number. Exceptions may be granted for the
following circumstances: the existing street number is out of sequence;
the main entrance has been relocated and is now on a different street; or,
the same address has been issued for more than one location (i.e.,
duplicate addresses and multiple properties creating a non-unique
addressing situation). "

Hi Kwangsadirdja, I agree with Brian on this, but if it means a lot to you I would check out the link from Steve and call the city as he suggested...Dawn

Hi, kwangsadirdja,

You are not the first person that I have heard or seen ask this question. Numbers have significance to different people in different cultures.

I think you have a problem with what you want to do. Open the link provided by Steve Ornellas, below. Go the page 7 and read the paragraph:
Can I request a different address number if I get assigned a number that I don’t like?

The City of Fremont 510-494-4834 is the primary source for the answer to your question.

TU to you, Steve.

There is no such thing as changing street name or house number.

I would think it would be nearly impossible to change a number.
Mostly due to County Records, APN numbers, and street numbers will go in order and there may not be room for another number.

You can check with the city regarding their opinion and suggustions.
I have never heard of anyone changing their address number.
