Tinder Exists For Baby Names, And It’s Actually The Best Thing Ever

Introducing… Kinder

Forget passing the Prime Minister test and matching appropriately with your surname: in our books, the hardest part of choosing a baby name is finding something that both you and your partner like.

Whether you’re leaning towards one of the most popular baby names of 2018 or the 100-year-old names set to make a comeback, a new app matches your top choices with your partner’s, and this pregnant writer can’t get enough of it. 

It’s called Kinder, and it works just like Tinder – except instead of swiping right on potential love interests, you’re presented with baby names to say yay or nay to. You can search according to country of origin or gender – and whenever you match with a name your partner also likes, the app lets you know.

The only problem is that you inevitably end up trawling through hundreds of downright awful names in order to get to the gold – and some women may not want their husband’s options opened to monikers like Maverick, Draco and Flash. But then again, each to their own.
