Naming Baby App

By Naomi Berners

Would you let technology decide on a moniker for your little one?

It's a pretty big deal choosing a name for your baby - they're stuck with it for life after all.

You want something that suits them at whatever age, something that doesn't get shortened to a nickname they'll hate, and something that has a nice meaning to it.

No pressure then.

You'll think of a name you like, then run to tell your other half only to be met with: "My uncle's friend's brother has that name, and he's a bit of a weirdo."
