  • By C. Sears on 8 December 2007

    We returned this book as it was of no use to us at all. It is an American book and this is reflected in the names it has included (eg Hunter) and those it hasn't (eg Daisy). There is also a lot of guff which we felt was unnecessary; all we are after is a list of names and meanings. On the plus side it did provide a few hours of entertainment as we giggled at some of the names parents have inflicted on their off-spring!

    This book is totally useless unless your looking for an american name for your baby. A complete waste of money, I need to buy another book that has a better list of names. I would recommend people NOT to buy this book. It should be titled "Complete Book of American baby names"

    This book is a real find for those who enjoy throwing books at walls out of frustation or indignation or any other negative sentiment induced by sloppy research and lazy writing. For those who have never indulged in book throwing before, this is an ideal introduction, I can guarantee that a very short read starting on any page will have complete novices hopping this book off the nearest wall like the most weary and cynical of those who for whatever reason have had to endure reading huge volumes of tripe for decades.The names listed.. where do I begin..I am Irish myself so let's just look at Irish names first. Most of those listed are family names not first names. It may be argued that many Irish family names have their origin in the first name of some ancestor in which case the original name would be the first name to use. Example.. Hickey. This is an anglicised family name which in the original gaelic is Ó hÍceadha, this in turn has probably been corrupted from its original form over the thousand or more years it has been in use. When not in use as a family name Hickey is another word for a love bite.Many of the other names listed are the wrong sex. Some, while they may be used on some unfortunate child somewhere, are at best ridiculous and at worst cruel and insensitive.. Apple, Orange, Plum, Lemon, Hud(hooded man), Lefty, Humvee(resembling the vehicle), Coffin.For anyone who thinks I am being closed minded I have two words : Deed Poll. If you like any of these names, why not change your own name instead of inflicting it on a helpless baby.

    We bought this book after our 20 week scan to get some name ideas. It feels very American and lots of the names are weird - Celery is one that stands out for me. In fact we didn't come up with a single name we liked using this book. I wouldn't recommend it.

    This is not worth owning. when you read down a page of the names you will find a bonkers set of words that one wouldnt recognise as names. its more like a really rubbish dictionary. The names lists from different places are incredibly short and again not a good representation. really the only purpose of this book is to read it and laugh at the ideas of the names. real suggestions are in there but they are so spaced out with all other suggestions that this book is definitely not worth owning. buy something else.

    This is very badly put together - a lot of well known names are missing entirely, names are often in the wrong gender sections, and I've spotted several definitions of names that are just nonsense.

  • By N. White on 25 August 2009

    I would not recommend this book. Most names are repeated a numerous amount of times and my boyfriend and I did not pick a single name from this book.It was a waste of money.
