A Baby Naming App That Lets Your Unborn Child Pick His Name? Now We've Seen it All!

Have you heard about the new Kick to Pick iPhone app that lets your unborn child pick his or her own name.  Yes, seriously.  How does it work, you ask?  Simply place your phone on mama’s belly, preferably when baby is wide awake and kicking.  Then as the app scrolls through a list of baby names, it will detect baby’s slightest kicks using the iPhone’s internal accelerometers.  Register a big enough kick, and your kid has just picked out his name.

The Kick to Pick app is all fun and games, but really, would you let your unborn child pick his own name?  Maybe if you’re planning on going the same route as the parents who named their kids “Like” and “Facebook.” Otherwise, how about picking out a name the old fashioned way…like from a bestselling baby naming book like the one below?
