Babyname is the new way for you and your partner to find the perfect name for your baby.
It’s a fun & easy solution for busy couples to connect with each other no matter where they are and find the perfect name for their newborn.
How it works?
Connect with your partner and swipe through baby name cards together. If you both like the same name, it's a match and is added to your favorites list, so you'll never forget it. One name will last a lifetime.
Babynames features over 30,000 unique names – each with its meaning and origin. Like how the name Lucy means light, and Yunus means Dove. That’s nice, isn’t it?
*UPDATE we've fixed undo swipe feature and made some other minor improvements*

Baby boy 👶🏻
My husband and I used this app to find a name for our son that was born in October 2017. My husband works 84 hours a week, so it was hard sometimes to conversate as much as we’d like to find a name we BOTH liked. We ended up agreeing on a few names, then on the day of his birth we agreed on a name that fitted him best! We love our sweet Bentley 💙 and everyone loves his name.
The reason I gave 4 stars was for a few reasons.. (1) if it was a few days since I had been in the app, I would return and accidentally swipe the wrong way. I suppose that wouldn’t be so bad if (2) you were able to delete names you wanted to remove inched added to the “Matches” list. Even as we were narrowing down our names, it would have been nice to eliminate names off the list. (3) The pushing for upgrade is a little bit much as well.. There are other apps that are completely FREE, and don’t have issues I listed above.
Overall I would recommend this to someone who was in search of a baby name. It’s nice to have access to meaning of name, and the option of boy, girl, and neutral names. ❤️
Fun app, needs some work
This app is fun and is a great way to see what names both you and your partner like. This cuts down tremendously on conversations about names, as you can just quickly compare ones you like. I like that you can pull it out for a few minutes a day and can quickly go through 50 names! I like that boy names are blue, girl names are pink, and gender neutral names are purple; it adds a fun detail! Some of the names are very old-fashioned and unique, so you'll see names on here you may never have thought of otherwise. Some people may find this frustrating, but I love that there is a wide variation of names. One suggestion, and the reason I had to give only 4 stars, is that once you have discarded a name you can't change your mind. On the Kinder app you can easily change it, but on this app you have to pay! That is ridiculous, as it is easy to accidentally swipe the wrong way. Aside from this one annoyance, it is a fun and useful app!
Great idea, execution is lacking
Pros: This is a great concept when finding time to compare name lists is difficult and there are a lot of great names that I would not have thought of.
Cons: If I swipe left on the name, it shouldn’t come back up. Different spellings/versions of the same name are repeated (Nathan & Nate or Chloe & Khloe are on different cards) and other times listed as an alternative to the main name (Kaylee w/ Kayleigh + 4 more options are on the same card) - pick a system. The names are sometimes midgendered (girls names are blue, boys names are pink). If the editor is unsure maybe just make purple the default.
It’d be nice to have: the ability to share lists with more than one person as more than just my partner and my opinions are going into this process. As others have said, it’d be great to be able to add and sort the names you like.
