    Waste of Money!!

    I'm glad I didn't pay alot for this book, or I would have taken it back. What a waste of time though. The first 14 pages include lists of 'normal' names, but the rest of the book is a mixture of names so uncommon you wouldn't name your dog. I was really hoping a name book would help us...I guess this wasn't the one. There wasn't much to choose from at the store, but if this is what they carry the others must be really bad.

    This book could not be more WRONG!

    I don't know how this woman was able to publish this book! She actually has names like Reese & Riley listed as GIRL names only! What?!!? Riley does NOT mean 'a courageous woman'! Riley was a boys name for centuries and it wasn't even until 1990 that people started using it as a girls name. B.B. King's first name is Riley- according to this book his name means 'a courageous woman.' I think not! Sorry honey. Go back and get your facts straight before you publish such garbage! Don't buy this book! Buy a baby book that actually has the real meanings of names in it!
