First baby naming app to use artificial intelligence and algorithmic matching(March 16, 2018)
Namey is the only mobile baby naming app on the market that uses artificial intelligence and algorithmic matching to enable searches for boys’ or girls’ names based on origin, first name letter, characteristics, name meaning and other family members’ names.
Namey is also unique in its use of social collaboration, allowing users to save favourite baby names and then create polls to send to friends and family, inviting them to vote for the names they like the best.
Jamal Khan, founder and creator of Namey said:
“There’s a lot of pressure on parents to find the ‘right’ name for their baby - there are often many external factors and influencers that need to be considered. The Namey app uses artificial intelligence and algorithmic matching to help parents choose a name for their baby that reflects their own names, siblings’ names, heritage and preferred character traits. Namey’s powerful search functions and smart data analytics provides our users the ability to enter their unique search requirements and get baby name suggestions within seconds. The integration with social media apps installed on their mobile devices allows polls to be shared seamlessly.”
“Our research highlights how important it is for parents to have endorsement of their baby’s name by those closest to them. Namey’s polls offer a fun, collaborative and intelligent way for parents to find the perfect baby name. Choosing a name is always a hotly debated topic in the run up to having a baby - it’s often hard to please everyone. Family and friends invariably want to join in and offer their own suggestions. Namey’s polls mean parents can involve friends and family members in the process - name suggestions can be polled and voted on in an open, transparent and objective way. We designed Namey to be intuitive and enhance the baby naming experience. The scores of positive reviews we’ve received on social media and App Stores confirm that we’re doing exactly that.”
Launched last summer, Namey now has over 15,000 users worldwide and offers over 25,000 names, 12 different origins (English, American, Arabic, Chinese, European, Indian, Japanese, Muslim, Persian, Spanish, Turkish and Urdu) and 75,000 name meanings / characteristics for users to search from.
The most popular characteristics currently searched for by users are, beautiful, beloved and brave
