Does Google allow someone to have more than one personal Google account?

If not, is there any way to have more than one Gmail in an account?

Yes, you can have multiple Google Accounts. I have three myself (not counting a Google Apps account from my employer, not to mention a couple of email addresses I've reserved for my kids). What do you mean by "have more than one gmail in an account"? A Google Account = a Gmail account. You get one Gmail address with your Google Account. That said, there are ways to manage several Gmail addresses through one Gmail mailbox. Please edit your question to clarify what it is you're trying to do. – Al E. May 28 '14 at 2:03

If you concern legal issues, I did not notice anything against it in its Terms of Use. btw, There's not any term allowing it explicitly.

From George Wright here:

I have over 30. Never a problem. I use my real name and only one "alternate" email for all of them, (which is a gmail account too) and have never had a problem. I don't think they have a limit.

Edit. The above was based on the [gmail] tag to the Q. If Google Account was indeed the subject the answer is still that more than one account is permitted (see here for implied though not specified permission).
