4.0 out of 5 stars I like this book better than many baby names book 31 Aug. 2012
By A. Lamb - Published on
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
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars As one would expect... 18 Nov. 2013

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad we found this book! 5 April 2012
By maria - Published on
Format: Paperback
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!!
