Heavy Lifting


Bespoke app development

The Brief

Nameberry are the worlds leading online resource for baby name information and inspiration. After working with them on their website, branding and blog design we were approached to build a bespoke app aimed at helping users come up with new exciting name ideas and to manage favourite and disliked names within the app linked to their existing nameberry accounts.

The Solution

The solution here was an app called the Name Hunter. built using advanced web technologies the namehunter app linked with the Nameberry names database and user accounts allowing users to search for new exciting names based on their selected inspiration or a randomly generated selection. From here users can select names from the results to 'Favourite' and add to a shortlist and hide names that they weren't keen on to filter these from future results. These favourites and disliked names are linked seamlessly to a user's Nameberry account and can then be accessed and managed at anytime from the app or online at

The Details

The web app was built to work responsively across all platforms to act as a fun tool and a new way for prospective parents to interact with the nameberry database.

Inspiration names are either input manually, generated at random or brought in from users' existing favourites list pulled from and are based on the gender selected by the user.

The 'Favourites' and 'Disliked' names panels allow users to view and manage their name selections in the app, distinguishing from names pulled in from the app or from the users existing Nameberry account in real time.

"Working with the brilliant Baggaley brothers is a pleasure from beginning to end. Multi-talented, efficient, and agreeable, Jake and Joe steered Nameberry through a complete redesign and conversion to a responsive format. They made a project that felt massive and overwhelming manageable and even pleasant, coming in on budget and on schedule. Our experience was so fantastic we've continued to turn to them for other tasks large and small, from creating our unique Namehunter tool from inspiration to reality to designing original items for our online shop. I can't recommend Jake and Joe highly enough. If you're lucky enough to hire them for your team, you can look forward to a creative, productive, enjoyable working experience."
