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?
THIS IS WHAT PRESS SAYS:
“A great, simple idea, brilliantly executed.”
APPLE APP OF THE DAY
“How to choose a baby name!”
A CUP OF JO
“So funny, yet so clever and helpful.”
“Makes the sometimes stressful decision more fun.”
BABYNAME’S NEWEST FEATURE:
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.
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."
