I'm Pregnant Magazine
Choosing a name for your child is both exciting and, for some of us, slightly daunting. Do you go for something traditional, or something modern? A name with a special meaning, or one that you simply like the sound of? And how do you make sure the name you choose will be loved by your child as much as by you?
Brilliant Baby Names provides all the answers. With over 14,000 names to choose from, both ancient and modern, traditional and global, there’s all the inspiration you could need to get you started.
And to make sure that you pick a name that both you and your child love for life, the book offers:
- top tips on what to consider when choosing a name
- advice on the common pitfalls and how to avoid them
- a fascinating insight into the psychology of names, and how different choices might affect your child’s future happiness and success
- meaning and origin of all 14,000+ names listed
- inspiration from books, film and music
- a quick rundown on the legal side of naming your baby.

Also had some useful information about the psychology behind choosing the right name.
So then I found this book - had a quick glance and had to buy it. 'What have you got in mind?' was my wife's comment. The book is a compulsive read. We both keep looking up people we know and more so when we want to figure out why they gave their kids such strange names.
Did the book deliver? Well my wife was not inspired to have another baby, and thank goodness for that. But we have both had hours of fun though - ahem - reading the book!
Grab yourself a copy; it's a gem!

I'm sure all books like this are petty similar but, as this is the only one I bought, all I can say is that it was useful and did the job.Published on 5 Sept. 2013 by Mr. R. J. Knowles
This 'book', for want of a better word, is truly, truly awful. I never thought that the depths of the English language could plummet so low. Please do not waste your money on it.Published on 29 Aug. 2013 by Patrick Curtis
Decent enough baby name book. Not much you can say about a book of names, but this is perfectly standard and worth the read.Published on 23 April 2013 by rcoull
When purchasing this book i thought that this would hold a lot of original English names. This book is very poor and i would not recommend this to any parents. Read morePublished on 28 Jan. 2011 by Lucy
This book is excellent - so much more than a list of names and meanings. Very informative and well written.Published on 18 Jan. 2011 by Catherine
We bought this book on the recommendations and the fact that it has over 14000 names but we didn't find this very helpful. Read morePublished on 17 Nov. 2010 by ClaireW82
