Deciding on the name of your children has never been easy and today parents are turning to Google to help them choose names for the next generation. Parents are searching for the most original names using the search engine as well as ensuring that the names they are considering do not bring up any undesirable results. According to a US site for parents, LilSugar, 64% of parents Googled their baby’s potential name before making the final decision. A couple wanting to name their child Kalia, Googled the name and found that it brought up images of a stripper. Because they didn’t want their child associated with a scantily clad person they changed the spelling to Kaleya, to ensure that they chose an original name. Parents check the potential names also to avoid their offspring being named after a serial killer, sex offender or pornography star. Some parents want their children’s name to be unique and therefore, come up first on the search engine but of course not too exotic that they get bullied at school. Another way parents are using Google to name their child is with an app called ‘Kick to Pick’. You choose two potential names and using the app, hold up the phone to the pregnant belly and wait for the baby to kick to choose which name to go with. One couple used this technique after being unable to decide between the names Chloe and Zoe. On all four attempts the baby kicked at the name Chloe. After Googling the name they also liked the meaning: “little green shoots.” So, using the app to make the final decision, much like tossing a coin, they registered their unborn baby as Chloe. The internet makes life easier in so many ways with so much information on our fingertips.
