Moms know the struggles that come with finding just the right baby name. Is it meaningful? Does it work for a child and an adult? Will it keep your daughter off the pole?
Now, there's an app that can help. The Nametrix: Doctor or Dancer?, available for free on iTunes, culled government data and info from that bastion of information, Wikipedia, to offer stats on thousands of first names, including most common jobs and political affiliations.
Wonder if your little one is destined to be an artist, athlete, architect or anarchist? The Nametrix might be able to clue you in. We were curious about what's in a name, so we looked up the top professions of some of our favorite celebrity baby names.
Here's a look:
Lorenzo (son of Snooki): Architect
Violet (daughter of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck): Writer
Samuel (son of Garner and Affleck): Rabbi
Mason (son of Kourtney Kardashian): XXX Performer
Penelope (daughter of Kourtney Kardashian): Writer
Abel (son of Will Arnett and Amy Poehler): Politician
Cyrus (son of Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy): Film director
Faith (daughter of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban): Singer
James (son of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick): Missionary
Moses (son of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin): Rabbi
Some of these seem fitting. We can totally see Danes' baby boy as a film director; and it's not a huge leap to think that Urban's daughter, Faith, might inherit some of Dad's talent and become a singer. Others? Not so much. But, hey, there's always a chance Snooki could raise an architect, right?
