This review is from: 40, 001 Best Baby Names (Paperback)
This book does contain a lot of names, and although I did find it useful I would probably buy a more concise version next time. Definitely buy this if you are looking for a wierd and wonderful name! One detail I liked was the fun lists at the start of the book, with headings like "Good Names For Racing Drivers" and "Old Fashioned Girl Names That Are Cute Again". However, I was a bit dubious about some of the meanings given; for example sometimes when two versions of spelling a name were given, like Sean and Shaun, they had different definitions too - I'm not sure if this is right! I would have preferred to have fewer names but more detail on the background and origin of each name.
