Kinder is like Tinder for baby names, and it's genius | Marie Claire Australia | Name News | Scoop.it
The Kinder app works just like Tinder - except instead of swiping right on potential love interests, you're presented with baby names to say yay or nay to.

What I learned after downloading every iPhone App of the Day for a month

What I learned after downloading every iPhone App of the Day for a month | Name News | Scoop.it
One of my favourite discoveries was a bizarre app, free to use (but with some in-app purchases), and absolutely not aimed at me in the slightest: Babyname. The app, and there is no other way to put this, is Tinder for baby names. You and your partner both install it, link your accounts, and swipe left or right on a list of names. If you both approve of the same name, it shows up as a match; if you don’t, it doesn’t. It let me secretly express my liking for unusual names such as “Landyn” and “Ricardo” without the risk of being mocked by my other half. And there was always the chance that we might find that secretly, Odo perfectly matches our shared desire for our future progeny to be named after an eighth century French count.
Clare's insight:

This post isn't about baby names, but I enjoyed the bit quoted here.

Inspiring mum Holly

Inspiring mum Holly | Name News | Scoop.it
Ottos full name is Otto Henry Rowu (pronounced roar-war). I had this terrible app on my phone and every day it would pop up with ridiculous names like ‘laddie boy’ (not even kidding) and ‘paulina’ and I was about to delete it and the name Otto popped up and I absolutely loved it. Henry was the name of a close family friend who passed away. He was the most humble, caring and beautiful man I’d ever met and it worked so well with Otto. Rowu is an aboriginal name from where he was born and it was given to him by our family friend who is Yolngu. It’s a flower that grows along the sand.

Thomas, Nicolas, Maxime, quels sont les prénoms les plus populaires sur Tinder en 2016 ? = The most popular names on Tinder in 2016

Thomas, Nicolas, Maxime, quels sont les prénoms les plus populaires sur Tinder en 2016 ? = The most popular names on Tinder in 2016 | Name News | Scoop.it
Verdict, si vous vous appelez Thomas, Nicolas, Maxime ou encore Guillaume, sachez désormais que vos matches devaient peut-être tout autant à votre nom qu'à votre photo de profil ! Même constat pour Romain, Alexandre, Anthony, Adam, Lucas et enfin Florent. Vous le voyez, la simplicité est au rendez-vous, avec des prénoms plutôt traditionnels. Du côté des femmes qui matchent le plus, on sent un peu plus d'exotisme : Alizé, Chloé, Carla, Margaux, Victoria ou encore Alexia et Cassandre cartonnent, tout comme Romane, Alix et Albane. Pour les Marie, Julie ou Hélène, on repassera !
Clare's insight:

Your name probably plays a part in whether people swipe you left or right (I can't remember which is which) on Tinder.

 

In France, according to this article, the men's names with the most matches were Thomas, Nicolas, Maxime, Guillaume, Romain, Alexandre, Anthony, Adam, Lucas and Florent. For women, the top names were a bit exotic: Alizé, Chloé, Carla, Margaux, Victoria, Alexia, Cassandre, Romane, Alix and Albane. At the other end were Marie, Julie and Hélène.

New Israel app helps parents choose baby names

New Israel app helps parents choose baby names | Name News | Scoop.it
The Israeli app The Namestork generates name suggestions based on a user’s input of names they like. The app was designed to ease all the list making. According the app’s developers, “a lot of parents already have a general idea about the ‘feeling’ of the name they’re looking for, but they still can’t find the one. The idea is to use a technological solution that will translate this general feeling into a list of names with the highest match potential.”
Clare's insight:

I've given it a quick go - it's a bit like Nymbler or Nameberry's Namehunter. The names it suggested for me aren't really ones I love, but I like that the selection is very internaional, not limited to anglophone names.
