Overview

The perfect antidote to the boring baby-naming books -- a hilarious guide for expecting parents on what NOT to name their baby!

What better way to choose the perfect name than by ruling out those names that are off-limits?

Joe Borgenicht offers more than a thousand names, complete with pronunciation and definitions, that absolutely, positively cannot be used for a child. But don't worry, there are exceptions to the rules, and a lot of names will work just fine, especially if there's something wrong with you. Sections of the book include: "Movie Mania" (Morhpeus, Maverick, and Starsky); "It's the 21st Century: Move On!" (Murray, Irving, and Ethel); and "Shop at the Mall, Not the Nursery" (Timberland, Lucky, and Armani). There are hilarious sidebars and lists, like: "Infamous Dictators" (Saddam, Benito, and Manuel); "Famous Sidekicks" (Robin, Tonto, and Garfunkel); and "First Voted Off the Island" Survivors (Sonja, Debb, and Peter); and more!

We've all heard the bad ones: Moon Unit (Zappa), Sailor Lee (Brinkley), Chastity (Bono). With an edgy and often politically incorrect sense of humor, What Not to Name Your Baby is certain to help expecting parents be creative, without scarring their child for life -- at least not with a name.

    Loved this book

    Received it as a gift with my first child. Loved it so much, I've given it to others as gifts too. Very light hearted and funny.

    What Not to Name Your Baby

    Many of his objections have to do with not liking a television character who had the name. Personally didn't find the book witty or amusing.

    What Not to Name Your Baby

    It's not that I don't have a sense of humor, it's just that it's better than the author's. He objects to a lot of names because they cause him to think of TV characters or celebrities he doesn't like. The anti-baby naming book had already been done and this one is mean-spirited and not very original.
