Nymbler just got smarter!

Over the past couple of weeks we've been working to improve Nymbler's name suggestion algorithm, and the new version is live! So, welcome to Nymbler 0.2

Your feedback played a big part in helping us improve Nymbler - so thanks to everyone who's told us not only when Nymbler's name suggestions work for them, but also that time they put in Jayden and got back Bernice.

We hope you'll notice some of the changes in Nymbler, and as always, keep letting us know what you think.

We're planning on teaching Nymbler some new names, as well as adding some exciting new features during the next few weeks, so check back soon for more Nymbler improvements.

Is this Name “For Real?”

Back at the Nymbler Nest we are constantly watching out for new baby names so we can expand our database. We recently found an article about a couple’s run-in with New Zealand authorities concerning the name they chose for their new arrival.

According to reports, the couple wants to name their baby “4real,” because of the reality of the upcoming birth. But authorities told the couple names beginning with a number aren’t allowed in New Zealand. The country has rules so individuals aren’t given names that are “likely to cause offense to a reasonable person."

To find out more, check out the full story.

What do you think? Would you ever use a number in your baby’s name? Should governments enforce"naming rules" for parents?

Internet Explorer functionality fixed

We want to thank everyone who sent us feedback last week about problems using Nymbler from Internet Explorer. The problems we're aware of should now be fixed.

Feedback from Nymbler users helps us identify problems much faster. Let us know if you're having problems using Nymbler in the comments, or by emailing us.

Welcome to the Nymbler Blog

Welcome Nymbler users! Over here at Nymbler headquarters we are super excited to finally have our beta website live.

Now that things have calmed down a little bit from our first heady week online, we wanted to set up this blog. This is where we'll be announcing updates and new features, and filling you in on fun Nymbler factoids and tips.

Since Nymbler is so new, we are fixing and upgrading it all the time, so check the blog and the website frequently for changes and improvements.

In the meantime, try Nymbler out!
