How do you pass an array of classes through an intent to another activity?

I have a class called Names. I then created an array Names[] names = new Names[10]; holding 10 of those classes. Then I ran a for loop to assign a new Names() object to each of them.

Through the app the user inputs 10 names, each name gets saved to a variable inside of each Names class in the array. I now want to pass this names array to another activity through an intent but I have not been able to do so.

In other words, my question is: how do I pass an array of classes through an intent to another activity?

Have you watched the Treehouse course "Using Parcelable Data"? If not then I would recommend going through it, the example they show is taking an array of objects and sending it trough an intent, which sound like the exact same thing you are trying to do.
