Have you tried Kick to Pick? It’s an iPhone app that allows your baby to choose his or her own name with a kick (or punch, or squirm, etc.). You can have the baby choose “from thousands of baby names or even a shortlist created by you,” according to the website.
One AppStore commenter liked it:
Me and the mrs named our daughter using this app :D
But another said it featured “ridiculous names,” and suggested that the designers make a few improvements.
I don’t plan to download this app, but I do like the idea of it. Using the iPhone’s accelerometer and your baby’s random movements to help brainstorm for names sounds like fun, and I’m a fan of anything that adds fun (instead of stress!) to the baby-naming process.
Have you played with the app? If so, what did you think?
