Are you on the hunt for a name for your child? Or maybe you need to name a character in a story? Or maybe you have a new pet you’d like to name? Well thanks to this lovely application you’ll be able to search names in an interesting way!
To get started you need to select what database you want to use for your name search. Your options are:
Traditions – maybe you’d like a name from a certain tradition. Here you’ll select from traditions like English, Italian, Welsh, Greek, or Hebrew.
Dispositions – in this category you’ll select from personality traits like adventurous, brave, strong, wise, and quirky to draw your names from.
Celebrity Babies – here you can find out what celebrities have named their children, whether they’re hollywood, politicians, athletes, or musicians.
Other Worlds – use this database if you want to select a name that could be straight out of Harry Potter, Middle Earth, Narnia, Star Trek, or Star Wars.
Once you’ve selected the category you want to search in, you’ll want to decide if you’re looking for unisex names, or if you want only girl or only boy names. You can do this by un-checking either boy or girl at the bottom of the application.
Now select a trait under the database you’ve selected, notice that the tag near the bottom now says how many names they found for what you chose. You can narrow this down further by selecting another trait or you can check out what it found by clicking the tag.
That will take you to a list of names! Click on a name to learn more about it. You’ll learn where it originated, what names are similar to it, as well as, have the option to get more information by Goggling it. You can also add the name to your favorites (which you’ll now be able to see at the bottom of the page). Or you could make a logo out of it by using the editing buttons beneath the image of the name – you can then download the logo!
This is an awesome name finder site. I’ve bookmarked so that when I need a character name I can quickly get there and start the hunt. Check it out today or forward it to all the parents to be you know!
