A Japanese proverb says “Tigers die and leave their skins; people die and leave their names”. It indicates how important it is to give your child a proper name.
Kinder is designed to help you and your partner find that name, the name that fits your baby but also the man or woman they grow out to be.
With Kinder we have created an app in which you can quickly flick through name suggestions either liking or dismissing them. Your likes are than matched to the likes of your partner and by both looking for names you'll end up with a shortlist of names you both like.
Kinder is free and we have over 18.000 names in our library with a grand variety in origins so you can find that unique name that your child will write history with!
Dear Kinder users, we’ve added a new way of connecting! You will now be able to use a code as well as the connecting link, in case the link doesn’t work.
Along with this we’ve added a couple new name sets; mainly focussing on the southern pacific, where people give their children very beautiful, spiritual, names.
We’ve also renewed the Brazilian, German and Russian name sets. The Russian name sets were renewed with the help of one of our dearest users. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have an idea or suggestion!
Warm regards, Krijn - Founder of Kinder
Ratings and Reviews
Fun App (but doesn’t save profiles)
Easy to use, and provides a fun way to look at names from lots of traditional names (and not so traditional ones, a la Pokémon and LOTR) that my wife and I used to find some unique names.
Unfortunately, after accruing around a dozen matches and hundreds of disliked/liked names, we lost all our matches when I upgraded to a new phone. Since there is not really a saved profile or account save for the app itself, all my likes and matches were saved on my old phone and were lost, forcing us to start all over again.
Names also tend to repeat with only slightly changed spellings from others you may have already seen and liked or disliked.
Overall useful app, but beware of restoring/upgrading your phone or the app if you’ve already invested time into using it!!
We have fun with this app. It sparks some good conversations.
I really wish there was a way to export the whole list of matched names though. Since our likes aren't linked to an account we can log back into, it seems too easy to lose all the data. Being able to export the list would help.
I also really wish there was a way to look at your stats, too. What percentage of names do I like? Would be so fun to know (and compare).
Room for Improvement
Spend so much time going through multiple spellings of the same name. Also, fairly limited classic name selection compared to how many times a single name is spelled a different way or how many just non-names are included. Would be great if you could add your own names or if it was constantly updating with user added names.
