**Eigenvalues and quantum numbers**

My professor was discussing the Schrodinger equation in 3-d today and mentioned that there are degeneracies within quantum numbers (for the hydrogen atom, the x, y, and z components are symmetric?). Does that imply that the eigenvalues of some operator are the quantum numbers of a system? If so, which operator is it?
