4.0 out of 5 stars A decent book, well priced
I bought two baby name books and this (the cheaper one) was infinately better. It contains a good range of sensible names, including a large proportion of Celtic and Gaelic derivation. There is a clear meaning and/or origin given and because it's pocket-sized, it doesn't take an age to look through.

The best word to describe this book is OK. It doesn't overwhelm you with names but there are some random ones. We have looked through a few baby name books and have now picked a name for our baby but the name we have picked (although not common, it's not unheard of) was not in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Babies Nanes, 18 Aug 2009
This review is from: Babies' Names (Paperback)
The book has lots of names in it & it is worth the money it is down for, it is an ideal book when your searching for names for a new baby.

The best word to describe this book is OK. It doesn't overwhelm you with names but there are some random ones. We have looked through a few baby name books and have now picked a name for our baby but the name we have picked (although not common, it's not unheard of) was not in this book. If you really have no clue what to call your baby, this could be a good starting point, but there are much better books out there.

On a separate point, we bought this book "as new" although how it could have been described as this I'm not sure. The previous owner had turned many of the pages over and marked their preferred names in ink which made it difficult for us to clearly flag pages with the names we liked.

This review is from: Babies' Names (Paperback)
Very quick delivery to what was stated on email info. Lovely pocket sized book and you will be spoilt for choice with the amount of names to choose from, which all come with the meaning of the name
