What can you use the app for?

Babynameo is a website dedicated to helping new parents come up with a fitting name for their children. The application goes beyond a simple name database by providing useful comparative analysis tools that show parents which names are more or less popular. General name information is also supplied so users can discover the origins, meanings and native spelling of potential names. Normalized metrics provide users with various name-related data, including average search, uniqueness ratings, prestige rating and more. A simple analysis is included and provides information on popularity, the top industries, income level, Ivy League information and education level of each name. A name meaning review lets users add additional meanings to a name or report an incorrect entry.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Babynameo was created out of a need felt by the application’s founder. At the time, there were few naming resources available that provided much detail to help parents come up with a fitting name for their children. The process began with data collecting from census records, public directories, databases, school directories and other public files. The application currently offers parents an appealing way to research baby names.

What are the differences to other apps?

Baby name databases are all over the web. Most are very basic and include text links that allow the user to search for names alphabetically or by meaning. While these work for some, others take naming very seriously. After all, a child is stuck with their name for life. Babynameo provides those concerned parents with an extensive name research tool that can help them avoid a serious name faux pas.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Babynameo also stands out for its modern design. Most name databases have a dated look to them. Babynameo adopts a far more eye-catching and user friendly layout and design, complete with a gender-neutral green color scheme. The search bar is available right on the homepage along with clean silver buttons to help the user find their way around the site. The design is easy to use and visually appealing.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can create a Babynameo account by clicking the silver “Sign Up” button in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The form on the next page asks for a username, email address and password. A note on the following page advises the user that they must complete email confirmation before logging in to Babynameo for the first time.

What does it cost to use the application?

Babynameo offers two subscription options to users. Both come with the same features, which include popularity metrics, prestige metrics, education metrics, average income metrics, Ivy League metrics, unlimited name analysis and comparative analysis. The first is a three month subscription which costs $9 total. The second costs $15 for a total of six months of access. No free option is currently available and the site doesn’t advertise any trial accounts.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Babynameo is a helpful tool for any new or expecting parent that wants to find a fitting name for their child. The application is best suited to parents who are very serious about their child’s name but have no idea where to begin looking. Babynameo provides a wealth of name-related data that can help users choose a name that is appropriate as well as unique.
