Using the -ntriples flag may produce, for example:-

   _:1 <#name> "Sean" .

However, according to the NTriples BNF:-

[[[
   namedNode ::= '_:' name
   [...]
   name ::= [A-Za-z][A-Za-z0-9]*
]]] -

all name components must start with an alphabetical character in the set
[A-Za-z]; viz. numerals are forbidden.

Cheers,
