    Difficult to find the name you want-poorly organized

    While I suppose the book itself has useful information (I was rather impressed by the variety of names), it is poorly organized. There is nowhere to look if you want to find the meanings of specific names, unless of course you just happen to know that Abigail is Latin and Alice is Greek. The table of contents is a book in itself with multiple entries per page number. The book is rather large, not heavy, but not pocket sized like the author's reference tool I was trying to replace. Also, the contents are a bit unattractive. The entire thing looks like it was composed in Microsoft Excel. Everything is in grids.

    Positives- It has lots of names, including lists of names from Hopi Indian, Korean, Armenian, Ugandan, and Yoruban origins. It has some potentially interesting information like the meanings of letters and numerology, and it does give lists of names like the most popular, the most 'sexy,' names that mean specific things (like 'flower' and 'brave') or are of religious origin, and a list of the birthdays of famous people organized by date.

    Fantastic book!

    I've bought several baby name books but this one compared to all others is the best! It's full of great categories and it will definitely help you find the right name for your child. It's not an ordinary baby name book. This book contains not only thousands of names from all over the world, but there are also very informative tips, strategies, easy and entertianing ways to choose the best name. And also if you want the most accurate meanings, then you got them!

    Baby Name Encyclopedia: The Perfect Baby Name Advisor

    This book will help you find a perfect name for your child that others will complement him or her on but will not make him/her feel like an outcast. So if you have eccentric tastes you have to buy this book hopefully this book will inspire more people to follow suit!!!

    Baby Name Encyclopedia: The Perfect Baby Name Advisor

    This book is really singular. It has very many interesting categories, which is missing to other books much. It is varied. But first of all it is very helpful, if one liked to find the fullcoming name.
