Android App Lets Unborn Baby Choose Its Own Name

What is the world coming to? Phone app technology now meets the womb, letting unborn babies choose their own names? Okay, so this might not be a bad idea. It actually might take a load off of Mommy and Daddy-to-be, not having to make the decision. Instead, they can let little Zafar or Eurwen” know when they are older that they chose it themselves. Yes, the app chose these names! “How did I do it, Dad?” “Well, with Mommy’s phone, so quit whining about it!” Parents will just need to give their little one extra help in kindergarten when junior is still having problems spelling the name “Thorgeirr” correctly. I am sure they will get the hang of the spelling eventually and forgive themselves for the name choice they made in Mommy’s tummy.

So how does it work? The android app, Kick to Name, created by Apphouse Software, allows unborn babies to kick to choose their name by placing phone on Mom’s belly and letting baby kick away until the little footprint sensor senses a kick, displaying the randomly chosen name. If you don’t like the name junior picks, you can try again or scroll through the entire list of thousands for other name ideas. But keeping the baby name “Rongo” could be fun, don’t you think? Each name baby chooses is automatically added to the favorites list.

Some critics might say it’s cruel to name a child solely based on a little kick or hiccup he or she made in utero. And that a little more thought and effort should go into something such as a lifelong name. But, let’s tell it like it really is, folks….. It’s for fun, plain and simple. Of course, parents are going to choose something other than “Tivadar”, or I would hope so! The fact is that expectant parents are giddy with excitement. When I was pregnant, especially with my first baby, I could hardly think of anything else except the baby. So, spending 99 cents on this Kick to Name app seems like a fun way to get through nine long months for parents-in-waiting. Plus, there is actually a good chance they will find their baby’s name from the app’s gigantic list of names.

My projection is that this app will do well. The target market grows every day and parents-to-be just can’t help but need ways to pass the time until little Bosworth Hathaway arrives. Happy name hunting!

What will they think of next? Sounds like a kind of fun idea, though.

I am pregnant and am thinking of getting this Kick to Name app. Have you tested this much. Can it really detect a kick or movement from the baby?
