Let your beautiful bump pick his/her very own name with the Kick to Pick baby naming app.
What is it?
Kick to pick is a unique name generator that allows the whole family to get involved in the naming of your child, even the baby itself. Not only will Kick to Pick offer thousands of names as inspiration, it also monitors the movements of your baby to identify any signs of enthusiasm it may show. It's fun, interactive and it couldn't be easier use.
How does it work?
To begin, simply choose from one of our gender-specific lists; each of which holds thousands of names to choose from. Alternatively, if you already have certain names in mind or you'd like to limit the search, you can also create a favourites list simply by starring the names you prefer.
Now the exciting bit! With your list selected, lie down and position your device over your baby bump and tap the start button to activate the countdown. Next, simply sit back and watch as Kick to Pick scans through your chosen list of potential names until it detects that all important input from your baby. Once your baby's choice is identified, you can either choose to accept the suggestion or put it down to hiccups and return to your search.
If you're using this app through a cellular device, we recommend turning your phone's Airplane Mode on. This mode can be found in your settings. Switching to this setting disconnects any cellular activity to your phone and ensures that nothing can interfere with your baby's choice!

Ratings and Reviews
Not too bad
The kicking sensor seemed fine to me. The boys list does have a bunch of girls names on it. And being able to search for names or add names of your own would make it that much better. But it does have a huge selection of names and the scrolling is no big deal. All in all I had a lot of fun using this ap
All this is is a list of names. No meanings or origins. Yes you can star your favorite choices, but the kick to pick function is an amateur random name generator that has nothing to do with sensing a baby's kicks. The names are so poorly managed that Amy, Ann, Anna, Annie and Audrey are listed under boys names. Really? The iPad app is the same size as the iPhone app, meaning the viewable screen size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Don't waste your money. There are free websites out there that are way better. I wish I had my .99 back.
More Options Please
Many of the names I like are not on the list. It would be nice to be able to add names. Also, it would be nice to have a search option instead of having to scroll through all the names.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
