2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid if you're in the UK, 7 Oct 2009
This review is from: The Brilliant Book of Baby Names: What's Best, What's Hot and What's Not (Paperback)
No doubt a good selection of names are in this book. Unfortunately it's padded out with complete rubbish. Unless there's a chance you want to call your child Beige or Beelzebub (both of which are listed), get yourself a book with real names for real people.
The 2 authors also see fit to add their own reviews of individual names, some of which are downright insulting and definitely upset my 8 year old daughter when she looked throught the book with me.
As mentioned by another reviewer, it is more suited to an American reading audience, not UK. Unless, of course, you want to risk your child having a seriously hard time at school.

I agree. I'm in Ireland but these women have some strange ideas. Eg, Stanley is alright for a girl, because it's cool for a girl (??!!) but too ugly and weird for a boy. WTF!?
My daughter's name is a cow's name apparently! Well, American cows must have nicer names than American children ;-p

Lol. I love your comment. I had this book when pregnant with my child. I guess yours is named Elsie? I liked that name but didnt choose it because of the cow reference in this book. Shame really, it's a lovely name.

I wish I had checked Amazon before I went to the shop to buy a 'Baby Name' book as I agree with 'Fairynuff's' review. I found this book very unhelpful and full of names I have never heard of before or even likely to use for my newborn. If you are in UK and looking for more traditional/normal names then I would choice another book.
