Kinder is a super simple name choosing app. Through Kinder you can quickly swipe name suggestions you like to the right and dismiss the ones you don’t like.

You get one name set for free based on your location and if you want you can easily buy additional name sets for a small fee.

You can connect to your partner to find matches. Purchased name sets will also be available for your partner.

Kinder has over 18.000 names in the library with a grand variety in origins so you can find that unique name that your child will write history with!

I can’t connect to my partner, please help!
If you can’t connect it might be that the connection code is expired. Please try to invite each other once more. If that doesn’t help it might be your time settings; those must be set to automatic, otherwise the connection mechanism can’t connect you unfortunately.

I don’t see our matches!
We try to update matches every 30 seconds. So please bear with us! If after that time you still don’t see them, please try to restart the app.

If I purchase a name set, will my partner also get these?

Yes! It might not show up in a split second, but if you’re connected purchases will be shared.

I bought a new phone, what will happen with my Kinder likes?
We are very sorry, unfortunately we don’t have a feature to save your likes, dismisses and matches just yet. We are working on a solution to save these though.

Who runs Kinder?

Kinder is app started by me; Krijn Haasnoot. I’m a Dutch guy who had an idea after having dinner with a couple of friends years ago. They were having their first child and my question was: ‘How do you find a name?’. Their answer was: ‘Probably some books, the internet, family’. I immediately thought, ‘that can be more fun’ and I came up with the idea of using an intuitive swipe like selection mechanism used by another app, but than with baby names! And it should be able to match likes between partners!’

I don’t think Kinder is the end solution to choose the name for your child, I just hope to inspire, get the discussion going in a positive way and help out! Having a baby is a fun, sacred, but also tiring and possibly stressful time. Let’s take a small thing out and make it nicer.

As you can read, Kinder is just a small one-man company.

Amazing app for future parents

This app is amazing! Never had I had so much fun in swiping. The idea to both swipe for names makes the process of chosing a name a lot easier. Love the new update of adding my own names to the list!!

Why all Japanese names?

All the names the app gave me so far are Japanese ones. I viewed about 20. Wired.

Handig om te matchen

Handige app,

Je bent alleen wel snel door alle namen heen en er komen veel namen opnieuw naar voren, sommige namen (bekende) zijn niet verschenen.
