In this world, there are two types of people.
There are people who know from day dot what they’re going to call their future children. Then, there are the last minute shamer-namers. The people who find it incredulous that people think about baby names for a long time, but have immense difficulty naming a baby when the time eventually comes.
Scary to think that we might have a Cornelius running for Prime Minister in the near future.
But, if these lists aren’t very helpful to you, then there’s a new modern solution.
Kinder is the new Tinder on the block, and it has nothing to do with the, ehm, eggplant emoji, and everything to do with babies. More specifically, baby names.
How it works is bloody simple.
You tell the app if you’re having a boy or girl, or there’s even a ‘I don’t know yet’ option, type in the surname of your future baby and you’re ready to go.
Now, you can swipe left (nah...) or right (sounds good!) as it starts displaying names, and you can even get a partner to play and when you both swipe right on the same baby name, it shows up on your screen as a match.
I don't know about you but, this could have resolved the many wars that have broken out amongst families over baby names. Well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but you can't deny the genius of it.
LISTEN: Is this the last ever baby Nigel?
