The Very Best Baby Name Book: 60,000+ Names 2.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

Don't waste your money on this book. It sends you on a rat race to check on the meaning of one name that is a derrivative of another, and that name is a derrivative of another, and so is that one, and that one, and that on. Frustrating to even stare at. There are other baby name books that are better than this one. It also doesn't really give a more comprehensive list as far as what countries use a name or spelling, or where it derrives from. The book intends to, but it falls short.
