5.0 out of 5 stars The 'full of wonderful names' baby book 6 Feb 2013
By melissa
Now, if I was about 20 or 30 years younger, I'd likely pick up a copy of Laura Emerson's book called 'Baby Names', just because. Just because I'd have babies on my mind and would enjoy hearing about some names that nobody else uses. This book is full of those, and is so sweetly presented. It's hard-covered, and chubby and my own daughters all oohed and aahed over it. Well, quite honestly, I did too.

My experience with baby names book is that they're dry and full of names everyone's heard of. Emerson's book has a section for princess names (always needed), and popular names in England/Wales and the US. She also added lengthy lists of beautiful Irish and Scottish names. What surprised me was the names that are growing in popularity. Some are very unusual, but that's half the fun, so to me this book is very much in a league of its own.

She included pronunciation for names that were a bit out of the ordinary, and that was a help. And she put in clever comments about names that were popular for their usage in modern books and movies. A nice touch.

This is a book I'll tuck away for my own children to browse through when 'the time comes.' I'm sure we'll wear it out, but until then, no hurries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book to keep by the bedside 7 Feb 2013
Choosing the perfect child's name is top of your list when pregnant. There are lots of baby books on the market but baby names by Laura Emerson is a really lovely version with beautiful photographs. It contains more than 3000 names along with their origin and meanings. This is a great little book and the photographs means it's also lovely to sit and look through! Definitely one to keep by the side of your bed when you need inspiration!

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok if you want a weird name... 5 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not sure about how many of the names in here are actually real names. Lots of made up or celebrity style names. A bit disappointing really.
