    expected more

    sure it says 15,000 baby names, but it's actually only about 200 and the rest are just various spellings of the same names. I was dissapointed.

    Waste of $2

    Hardly any names. Mostly just all the old-fashioned ones. It's pretty bad when I could think of several common names that aren't even in the book. Got nothing out of it.

    By an Expecting Mother

    I am so pumped about naming my new babies. My huband Vincent and I are expecting twins in about a month. I had just gotten married in May and will soon be a wife and mother.Throughout my pregnacy I couldnt do very much but sit and read on my Nook. Suddenly the thought popped in my head to look at baby names on here and thats what I did. My husband and I decided on Hazel Grace Lamonica and Hermoine Georgia Lamonica. We are so excited to have finally picked out the names. The nursery is complete the names are picked out and we balanced out our spending all is left is to give birth to our twin daughters.
