I have read sooo many name books, and this one is by far my favorite! It is particularly good for anyone who is looking for a slightly more unusual name. We have used it to name both of our children, and our bengal cats.

This book is a wonderful book for name lovers (me) or expceting parents. There are lists of names separated by country, popularity, and finally the bulk of the book--definitions, origins, etc. I'm only 13, but I LOVE names, and this is my favorite baby name book out of the 6 I own.
