Getting just the right name for your baby has always been a passion for parents, but never more so than in the digital age. After all, if you can't get that desired email address / domain name / whatever for the Internet, you've got to find a different name, right?

To help in finding the perfect name for your baby, what better way than to use your iPhone. Right, right, your parents might be a good source of suggestions, too. But lacking that, how about an iPhone app from BabyNames.com?

Here's how the BabyNames.com Baby Names Finder app is described, rather simply:
Find, sort and keep your favorite baby names in this app brought to you by the creators of BabyNames.com. Includes a Name of the Day display, a random baby name generator and a complete app to search, enter and store your favorite baby names on your iPhone. Perfect for the expectant parent!
It's $4.99 in the App Store. Thing is, it's not the only baby name finder, and certainly not the first. Search the App Store and you can find a number of such apps, including one that suggests Indian baby names.

One has to wonder what baby IKC would have been named by using one of these apps, however!

I wonder how many babies you have to plan on having before this becomes a good investment.

Windows mobile has at least 3 free apps for it, around longer than the iphone. http://download.cnet.com/Baby-Names/3000-18495_4-10948083.html etc, in many languages. I'm sure other mobile os'es have too.

What's the motivation behind this article?

Four, when you take into account all of the babies being named IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.
