    Concise

    This book is used to write other baby name books. Since names are grouped by origins and pronounciations are given, it is one of my faves.

    Very useful

    I am naming a puppy rather than a baby, but the book is equally good for either. The only problem is that there are so many good names that it is hard to choose.
