But after hearing of some of the "embarrassing" names, Beau decided she needed to act.
Amelia and Oliver were the most popular baby names in England and Wales in 2015.
That's according to the Office for National Statistics which released the complete set of data last week.
Beau says it's quite strange to know she's named more than 200,000 babies. "It's nice to be a part of such a happy experience and be a part of those young stages in a baby's life."
The site's success has been a pleasant surprise. "I wanted to do it just to see if an idea could turn into more than just simply an idea. It is obviously a nice surprise, but it is definitely a surprise."
