APPLE APP OF THE DAY:
“A great, simple idea, brilliantly executed.”
A CUP OF JO:
“How to choose a baby name!”
“So funny, yet so clever and helpful.”
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.
The Babyname app 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?
READ WHAT APPLE’S EDITORIAL TEAM SAYS ABOUT THE BABYNAME APP:
"Eloise? Theodorus? Dymphna? There are enough stresses that come with expecting a child, disagreements over what to name your newborn needn’t be one of them. And that’s what makes Babyname such a great app.
It’s not extravagant. It’s not elaborate. What it is, however, is a great, simple idea, brilliantly executed, and one that will stop unwanted arguments and let you and your partner settle on the perfect name for your little bundle of joy.
Utilising a similar swipe-based mechanic to Tinder, potential baby names pop up as you swipe left to discard and right to like. As well as adding these ’liked’ names into a list of appealing possibilities, if your partner also downloads the app, you can sync up your phones using a shareable link or AirDrop and set about making your own, disagreement-free lists.
The hook? When you both ’like’ the same name, you’ll get a match alert. All of these mutually agreeable names then populate a list all of their own and you can narrow things down together, free from the worry of suggesting a name that will get you that look. You know the one.
With more than 30,000 names to pick from, you can filter suggestions based on sex, or keep things together if your new arrival will be a surprise. You can even expand your options with collections inspired by celebrity, athlete, and even hipster-based names (yes, really).
What’s more, if ridding your home life of any added stress and unwanted arguments wasn’t enough, Babyname also gives context to your choices, revealing the origins and meanings behind the names. For instance, did you know that Sara means a noble lady or a princess? Or that Lorelei is an alluring enchantress? How about that Cecilia means blind, grey eyes, and Maria is a sea of bitterness? No? Well, now you do."
We’re excited to introduce a new feature:
SUBMIT NAMES & Get A Real Feedback From Your Partner
With our new feature, you can add potential names to the app without your partner knowing and receive honest feedback on them. Simply enter the name, choose a gender, and add a meaning. Your partner will see the name within their next 10 swipes, and they can swipe left or right to indicate whether they like it or not.
Research shows that partners often don't give honest feedback when suggesting baby names to avoid hurting each other's feelings. Our new feature eliminates this issue, and you can now get genuine feedback from your partner on the names you like.
Ratings and Reviews
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!
This app is great, with a few tweaks it would be awesome
We are trying to conceive and want a list of names ready to go if we are successful. I saw this app in an article online and thought it might be fun so we gave it a try. I am happy to report we have found a couple names that we hadn’t even considered that we agree on already and we just installed yesterday. A few tweaks though would make this app amazing. 1) The ability to undo a swipe if you make a mistake. 2) The ability to delete a name from the match list as you are trying to narrow down your list. (Maybe make it so your partner has to approve the deletion??) and 3) Add name pronunciations as I found myself Googling quite a few of them. Make these improvements and this app would definately be a 5 star rating!
