So much info about my name I didn't know!
I've literally spent hours playing around with this app, looking up my own name, my kids' names, my friends' names, anyone I can think of. My name is popular among writers and directors which makes me feel very cool. The neatest feature is an interactive map where you can see where a name was most popular and when. Really useful if you don't want your daughter to share a name with eight other girls in her kindergarten class wherever you live!
I downloaded a lot of name apps before my first kid was born, but I definitely wish I'd had this one instead.
Great name info, great interface
Holy data, Batman! This is like the Nate Silver of name apps. I appreciate all the data, charts, and the ability to expand the charts to look at how the proliferation of a name changes over time. There are so many great data-driven features!
Love this app!
Thanks for adding another dimension to baby naming and a conversation starter for grandparents. It is by far the best naming app for parents seeking the perfect name for their new born as well as a fun conversation ice breaker for adults checking each other's names. Great info!
