5 Baby Naming Apps

February 1, 2015 0

Struggling with baby names? Finding it hard to find inspiration? Can’t agree on the same names?

Well then perhaps consider some of these baby naming apps. I mean, why not embrace modern technology and see if it can help you out?

1. Baby Names by Bounty

Free app. This is more of a database of names, updated regularly. You can search by gender, letter or you can “shake” your phone to generate random names. The names are listed with pronunciation, origins and meaning. You can then add any you like to your favourites. Pretty cool and simple to use.

2. Baby Name Genius 

Free app. This one’s good fun! You create a profile by answering a series of questions about yourself, your origins, your likes and dislikes etc. You then tap and hold the button, which on release, generates a name. You then tap the heart symbol if it’s a favourite, or tap and hold to generate another one. The longer your hold, the more random the name apparently. There’s some other interesting features like the “Born on this day” which gives you inspiration based on celebrities born on certain dates.

3. Baby Names by Schatzisoft

Free app. This one is a bit boring compared to the first 2 apps. It’s more of a directory, which different search functions. It’s quite cool that you can choose a name and then see how popular it was in previous years, but I think it’s a tad boring so I don’t really use this one personally. The ads at the bottom are a little distracting too!

4. Baby Names!!

Free app. With this app you can search by most popular, origins and letter and then keep a log of your favourites. Pretty boring I think, but does what it says on the tin I guess. Again, this one has ads at the bottom, but you can pay £1.49 to upgrade and remove these. Not worth it in my opinion, as this app doesn’t seem to bring anything new to the table.

5. Baby Names by BabyBump Pregnancy

Free app. First thing on this one that’s a bit annoying (in my books), is that you have to register. Creating a username, profile etc is a bit tiresome when you just want to search for baby names. But this seems to be more of a forum, full of posts from other mums and mums-to-be. You can ask questions, search for things and post your own photos, all within the group. You can then search for baby  names in the usual ways – by origin and popularity, logging your favourites as you go. The ‘fun finder’ is a bit more cool, where you shake your phone to generate a baby name – you then get a series of names derived from one central name. I quite like this part of the app. This is a US app by the way.

All in all, the baby naming apps out there seem to do pretty much the same thing. My personal favourite is Baby Name Genius, as it’s quite fun and throws up suggestions that do seem to be based on your profile and likes. My least favourite is Baby Names by Schatzisoft, as it’s pretty boring to be honest.

Do you have any baby naming apps you can recommend?
