Bernard Brogan's way of picking baby names is definitely going to catch on

The new way to pick baby names?

Dublin GAA star Bernard Brogan seems to be completely smitten with his new twin baby boys. And who can blame him? They're so adorable!

The babies were born earlier this month and, on 2FM's Eoghan McDermott show, Bernard gushed that he is thrilled with his "two bouncing baby boys".

"I'm absolutely delighted, every day is different. You're finding the personalities of the lads."

He talked about his and his wife's method of choosing their baby names. And here's where things get interesting.

Rather than get into lengthy discussions and endless arguments over baby names, Bernard and his wife, Keira Doyle, used an app to pick out names that they liked.

Chatting on 2FM, the Dublin footballer said:


"It's like Tinder for baby names.

"We both go through all the names, boys and girls, and you just swipe right for the one you like, left if you don't, like tinder, and when you hit one you get a notification saying you've matched a name. We had about six or eight names we both liked. It took us about two and a half days to pick the names."

There you have it. There really is an app for everything.

Bernard and Keira ended up choosing the names Donagh and Keadán for their little ones which we think are great Irish baby names so, you know, not a bad result.

What do you think? Is an app too impersonal or is it a perfect and easy way to pick your baby's name?

We think it's a cool idea and if you want to give it a try, you can download the app BabyName and start swiping.

It might be worth a go if you've exhausted all other avenues and are still searching for the perfect baby name...
