Great tool!

I miss wine

I've recommended this app to all my pregnant friends and relatives. It's super easy to use and has helped my hubby and I a ton when it comes to naming our expected baby. My only complaint is that there isn't a "spelling variations" option so you'll see a ton of different versions of the same names depending on how parents spelled it. But this app is free and has been so useful that I certainly won't mark it down for that!

Fav app for baby names!


I'm shocked there aren't more reviews on this app! This app has tons of details that I've never seen on any other naming apps! And I would say more names to offer. It's easy to use and fun to learn what all of the names mean, the origins, etc. My favorite thing about the app is that it offers suggestions on what names would work with the name you've searched and other nAmes that are similar to it as well.

Good, but could use one feature.


There is a great selection and variety of names. You can easily lose track of time perusing through this app. However, I wish there was a ‘back’ button to return to the previous page. For example, if I click on a ‘similar name’ I can’t return to the original name I was viewing. Or if I click on a name from a list, I am unable to return to the list and/or the spot I was on.
