Parents these days are taking their tech-obsession to a whole new level. This is probably why there exist names like ‘Like, Facebook and Hashtag’. While these names are indeed laughable, not all tech-inspired names are bad.
Techie baby names needn’t be outlandish or have to be inspired by the latest social media trend or science fiction. These names should subtly call out to your favorite tools. If you are intrigued by the idea of technology baby names, but unsure about where to start, have a look at our ideas below!
Technology Names For Girls:
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin named their daughter Apple. Speculation says that they may have named their daughter after their favorite MP3 player. No, that’s not just an assumption. She named her second son Moses, another Steve Jobs reference.

Perl is a term used in the programming language. With just one letter off from a classic name, Perl would make quite a feasible pick.
Dell has, for long delivered boxes of joy to consumers. But did you know that it is also recognized as a moniker for a baby girl? Dell was once considered as a short form for Della but is rarely heard now.
Surprised to see Pixel in this list? Don’t be! Pixel was one of the names suggested by a woman in an online poll while looking for a name for her daughter. She later settled with Mikayla, which is less horrific.
Lara Croft is the name of the protagonist of the blockbuster video game, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, where an English archaeologist-adventurer runs around, causing trouble in ancient ruins. Lara also happens to be a lovely baby name.
Ruby is another programming term. It is quite feminine and usable and has ruled the baby name charts for decades.
If you want your little girl to have the next billion-dollar startup, select a geeky name for her, something like Ada. Ada may be unheard in the Western world but is quite popular in the Arabic countries. In the tech world, Ada is a statically typed, structured, imperative, and object-oriented high-level computer programming system.

The name Alice is oddly normal, yet subtly geeky. It is also a programming language designed by the Programming Systems Laboratory. It provides concurrency features as a part of the base language through the use of a future type representing a value being given by a thread of execution.
We think that Vista is quite a valid tech baby name for girls. In fact, a Canadian programmer named his daughter Vista.
Is there anything better than naming your child after everyone’s favorite personal assistant and knowledge navigator?
Ananova, a virtual newsreader on the Internet, was programmed to deliver 24-hour news a day. It could make a great name for your darling daughter. If not Ananova, go for just Ana.
If you want a modern and forward thinking baby name, go with Zelda. It’s the name of a character in Nintendo’s second most popular video game (the first is Mario, of course) “The Legend of Zelda”.
Lisa is the name of the first personal computer with a graphical interface made by Apple. It was named after Steve Job’s daughter, who was born in the same year the computer was launched.
Names That Mean Technology For Boys:
Link has a double technological association. It’s the name of the protagonist of the Zelda game series, in which am elf boy goes on a quest to rescue Princess Zelda. ‘Links,’ the geek points are also a phenomenon on the internet.
Video games have some of the coolest baby names, with Jade being one of them. Jade is the protagonist of “Mortal Kombat 2”.
In Japan, Nyan is the name of the happy animated cat that flies through the Internet sky dressed as a cherry pop tart.
If you are a Charlie Brown fanatic or an open-source lover, you will love Linux. Linux is the name of the software engineer who created the Linux kernel. He is also the recipient of IEEE Computer Society Computer Pioneer Award.
No, Google wasn’t the first Internet search engine. Our first search engine was Archie. The name recently re-entered the Top 20 British baby name list after years in the wilderness.

If you are an Apple fanboy and find Steve too conventional, go for Mac. In Scotland and Ireland, Mac means ‘son of.’ It’s also a nickname or short form of McAllister or McCoy. Want to make it more complete? Spell it with a k, like ‘Mack’.
HAL is not just the name of the supercomputer from the movie “Space Odyssey”. It has been quite a common name for quite a while now as a short form of Harry or Henry. So, it’s possible that actor Hank Azaria wasn’t inspired by the Space Odyssey series.
Pascal is an influential procedural programming language, designed by Niklaus Wirth to encourage good programming practices using data structuring and structured programming. The language honors Blaise Pascal, the inventor of the first workable automated calculator.
Mario is one of the most popular Italian baby boy’s names. It also belongs to the much-loved Mario Brothers video game franchise. The name is classy, crisp and efficient.
Larry Page, Webpage, Facebook page, just take your pick. It’s a great name for a Google or Internet-loving family. We think Page would sound best as a nickname or middle name.
If there can be Rinoa, Zelda and Nyan, then why not Dovahkiin? The name is a combination of Dova, which means dragon and kiin, which means ‘born.’
