A Most Concise Name Book,
This review is from: The Penguin Dictionary of First Names (Penguin Reference) (Paperback)
Ordered this along with 'Brilliant Baby Names', and this is much better. It is extremely concise and features pretty much every name you could ever think of, with interesting and detailed descriptions about their origin. I could imaging that some people may be a little overwhelmed by the number of names and descriptions, and it is presented quite literally like a dictionary. However, I really love this format and throughly enjoy reading through the book searching for the perfect name for our baby to be.
