Better for girls than boys but has some hilarious gaffs in it!
on 16 April 2012
We bought this book as we are expecting our first child and wanted some ideas. I have to say that the girls section is much better than the boys section and we have got quite a few ideas from the girls. The problem is with the boys. It is very American, and the boys section seems to be made up of names that are actually surnames, yet Americans are using them as first names. You like Mick Jagger? Why not call your child Jagger? It also has one awesome gaff. Under the section of Celtic gods, it suggests calling your child "Wogan" the god of laughter. It isn't even an ironic tongue in cheek entry as it is next to actual Celtic gods! Oh and there are a lot of American sounding animal names and hunting related names.
