For expecting parents, picking a name for the baby can be among the hardest tasks you have. If you’re looking for a little help and inspiration the Baby Names™ app can do just that. You'll be able to browse through a massive database of male and female names as well as details on the name.
If you're trying to come up with the perfect baby name then this app can help you out. There are more than 60,000 girl and boy names. Search for seasonal names, Christmas names, strong names, nature names, and plenty more.
Launch the app to be taken to the main screen where you can browse through twin names, first names, a last name search, and a last name list. These all fall under the popular names category. There is also the idea lists which is where you can find ideas that would fall under animal names, ancient names, city names, and more.
For those people who have no idea where to start when it comes to picking a name, check out the A-Z listing of the names. You can specify if you’re searching for a boy or girl name here.
I find the name search to be pretty fun; just type in a name to get more information. In order to access all the name information, however, you need to purchase the full version of the app. In the free version all you can see is the origin of the name.
Wanting that Extra Bit More
I must admit after reading the developer’s description of this app the free version comes across rather under-whelming. I didn’t realize just how many features are not available to you. The app claims you can read about the details, origin, pronunciation, and meaning, but this is actually only available in the paid version. For me the details about the name were what was most exciting. The full version of the app is available for $1.99, which seems pretty reasonable.
Other features in this app include being able to create your own favorite list of names that you can organize and edit. Go ahead and add in your last name and the baby's middle name for the full effect. Share names by Twitter or email to get input from your friends and family.
The other cool feature is the popularity list where you can see a list of boy and girl names in order of popularity.

Not all features are available for free
Despite the fact that some of the main features aren’t available for free in the Baby Names™ app I still really enjoy it. It’s extremely quick and easy to use and I like that you can view pre-made lists and the list of popular names.
