Are you too lazy or busy to choose a name for your beloved bundle-of-joy-to-be?

That’s cool, because consultants are ready — for an undoubtedly reasonable fee — to do all the data-mining necessary to find the perfect name for little … well, we don’t know yet, do we? We haven’t had a chance to Google “Is Data a cool name for a boy?” or “Are people named Ken likely to succeed?”

Bloomberg reports that services like this are gaining in popularity as people aren’t able or willing to “put in the time” to find the perfect moniker. “Believe me, you don’t want to name a child with an unattractive name and have them go through life and suffer the consequences,” says one expert they contacted.

Or you could try Yahoo! Answers, but hey, to each her own.
