Parents who want to give their children a head start in life know that choosing the right name is important. Selecting the right first name can open doors for a child, while the wrong name can limit a child’s chances of succeeding in certain industries or professions. BabyNameo is a web-app that takes the process of naming babies very, very seriously.
BabyNameo is an application that you can use to get detailed information and data on more than 15,200 baby names. If you’re pregnant and deciding between a few different names, then it’s worthwhile to type your top picks into the BabyNameo search bar. Immediately, you’ll see a popularity index, native spelling, gender, meaning, and origin, just as you would with many other baby naming applications. What sets BabyNameo apart from other baby naming applications, however, is that it doesn’t stop there. BabyNameo also offers an Industry Analysis, which shows the top industries for any given name, along with an Ivy League Analysis that displays the percentage of people with that name who attend each Ivy League university.
The fun doesn’t stop there. BabyNameo members who’ve created custom accounts also get access to a special uniqueness rating, prestige rating, income analysis reports, and education analysis reports for each baby name they put into the system. To create these analysis reports, BabyNameo culls data from the census, municipal archives, public directories, university directories, and its users’ own personal information.
