Product Description

Rock and Roll Baby Names Everything an expectant music-lover needs to know about the lyrics, band trivia, and other rock-and-roll factoids linked to thousands of popular baby names. What do we know about Caroline? Neil Diamond says she's sweet and The Beach Boys say she prefers short hair when she's older. And what about guys named Victor? Prince and Blondie say Victor is possibly a saint, but also flees from the law. Offering the rock-and-roll definitions of these and dozens more popular names, the wildly popular Rock 'n' Roll Baby Name Dictionary post on Flavorwire drew over fifty thousand hits days after it was launched. Now its creator, pop-culture writer Margaret Eby, rolls out...

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad we found this book! 5 April 2012
By maria - Published on Amazon.com
Well, as most of you out there that have a baby on the way know, there are 1,000,000+ things that need to get sorted before the main event. But, at least to us, the NAME is the most important detail to be sorted before the BIG DAY! This book was nothing short of a Godsend in that department for me and my husband.

We were so tired of all the monotonous suggestions--Emma! Ian!--that had really no context other than that's what is "trending" at the moment, according to other soon-to-be Mommies and Daddies. So when we found this book it really resonated with us. Why not name our child something that has a special meaning to us, something that is connected to an artist that we are also connected to? So uniquely helpful for this important process!!

Highly recommended, to any future parents who are as blessed as us to have this opportunity to pick out a truly special name for our soon to be son or daughter!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fantastic, and Full of Facts 12 April 2012
By Patricia - Published on Amazon.com
My husband and I are expecting, and have been looking for some good books. I saw this one and thought it was cute, so I preordered it. I could not be more impressed! It's thorough and has such interesting facts, for both my name and my husbands. Also, there are tons of great tidbits about music celebrities, what they named their kids or instruments, and more. I think that even someone who's not looking for a child's name would find a lot of great stuff in it. Definitely check it out!
4.0 out of 5 stars As one would expect... 18 Nov 2013
By Love Chihuahuas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nice to mix it up from the GIANT name book I have at home. Also provides entertainment. The vast majority of the names are in a standard name book and others are just too absurd to be considered. I did get what I paid for and what I expected.
4.0 out of 5 stars I like this book better than many baby names book 31 Aug 2012
By A. Lamb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book goes past just listing names (although it does list names in a coherent and organized way). This book adds some inspiration to the naming process and is one of the few baby name books that has enough spirit to hold it's own as a book even if you are NOT naming a baby (although I am). Even though I did not FIND my baby name in the book, the one I plan to use, I found many close runners up, many middle name options, and some names I may use "next time" . If you like rock, rock history, babies, and you like books, this is a good pick.
5.0 out of 5 stars My new go-to gift 5 May 2012
By Sarah Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got a copy of this for myself as a coffee-table-book and conversation starter (which it's great for, this book + Youtube = instant party). My entire life, the only "Sarah" song I knew was that awful "Sarah Smile" one; it's really nice to finally know that there are some actually good ones, too. This book is also my new go-to gift for friends and family who are expecting babies. It can be hard to find something that isn't saccharine but won't embarrass you in front of grandma.
