Stumped on what to name baby? This Tinder-esque app will match you and your partner with the moniker you’ve been waiting for (no awkward small talk necessary).

Babyname is designed to help couples select a name for their baby, minus all the drama. Swipe right for “yes” and left for “no.” After syncing your app with your partner’s, the names you both swiped right on will appear on a shared list. Each name appears with a description of its meaning and origin.

Looking for something that digs a little deeper? Chooze is another baby naming app that makes suggestions based on your subconscious preferences as determined by tests. But if you’re just addicted to the swipe process of Babyname, you might like this similar app, Peanut, to help you land some new mom friends when the time comes.
