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.

The best naming app I've used!


I'm a cartoonist, and this app is amazing for naming my characters! You can sort by Themes, professions, and trending names, among other categories (so handy!), and it gives you data on the countries the name is most commonly used in. There's a vast amount of names, too, including some lesser-known ones! It went above and beyond expectations!

Really solid app


I gotta say, for what it is, this is probably the best app of its type. It's actually a pretty good interface to the US names data, and while the UI isn't perfect, it's good enough to make a solid data driven decision about a baby's name. Good job to whoever made this, I found it totally useful
