4.0 out of 5 stars There are some crazy names, but good ones too! 5 May 2008
By T. Zeller - Published on Amazon.com
I bought the first edition when I was pregnant with our first child and found her name within the strange and weird. Our second daughters name came for the first edition as well. These names are WELL beyond the Jacobs and Emilys we know at least 15 each of. There are the strangest of the strange, Zell, and beautifully normal, Audrey and Wyatt. This book will definitely let you decide what you DO NOT want to name your child as well as what you could live with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book if you are struggling with choosing a name! 6 Aug 2008
By Skatcat - Published on Amazon.com
I almost didn't pick up this book in the bookstore. I mean, I figure any book that actually gives itself the moniker of "cool" would by default NOT be cool, right? Plus, there are tons of free website with lists of names, so why would I need to buy a book? But I started thumbing through it, showed it to my husband and we decided it was exceptional enough to buy it.

The book is grouped into categories, and sure, some of them are a little unusual. We aren't the types to name our kids after a video game character or a supermodel, but some of the other categories were right up our alley. I especially loved the suggestions for taking an ordinary name and tweaking it slightly to make it more unusual or exotic. Great idea! This book also reminded me of names I hadn't thought about in years, many of which I hadn't seen on the "free" websites.

All in all, definitely worth checking out if you are stumped for names and want something that not half the other kids in preschool will have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical baby name book and that's a good thing 21 July 2008
By Casey - Published on Amazon.com
Out of all of the baby name books that I went through, this was one that stands out. It does have a lot of trendy names in there but that's part of the point of the book. If you're looking for more traditional names, there are tons of books that will do that for you. This one can point you in directions that you might not have thought of and I think that's a good thing. It's easy to read and the organization make it more entertaining to get through (you don't have to go through lists and lists of names in alphabetical order). Don't get me wrong, I think books with lists of names are useful but sometimes sheer quantity is not what you need.

On a side note, a great web resource is the Baby Name Wizard. Loved how that site charts the popularity of names over time and puts it into an easy to read format. I got the book by the same guys and it's okay. It just seems like another baby name book with lists of names. The website presents the information in a much better format in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just plain fun to read through 19 Nov 2009
By Lindsey B. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used the first edition for my first two kids, the second edition for my third. It is a fun book. Some of the names in it are laughable but some are perfect. Names you have never heard of to names that you have but aren't so common. The lists are interesting to read through. For those who don't want their child to be the 5th "Madison" in their class at school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas! 22 July 2011
By Amber Yarbrough - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book was so much fun to read! There were great ideas that we had never thought of. I loved the foreign language names, and place names. We wanted something unique but that wouldn't get our kid made fun of, and this book had a lot of great options.
