Von Pam am 4. Dezember 2005
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is one of the essential must-haves for expecting parents or anyone obsessed with babynames.
It is well organized and gives you useful and practical naming tipps. You find everything you need to know about a name: popularity, origin, nicknames, style- even potential sibling names are portrayed. The writing style is funny yet informative. A real treat to read.
If you are looking for the perfect name for your baby, you will love this book!!
I ordered my copy after hearing of the book on a famous babynames site and I haven't been able to put it down ever since. It is a constant visitor of my bedside table... :-)

Very well written, informative, helpful and fun to read 10. Februar 2005
Von Ryan Dykstra - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My wife and I used this book yesterday to pick out our second daughter's name and had a lot of fun doing it. There are two main sections in this book. The first section gives great detail for each name including nicknames, variants, sister's and brother's names (what the author felt sounded like a nice match), style, usage timeline (a little graph that shows a period from 1900 until now and how often the name was used in that period) and a general description of the history around the name, significant facts and advice. The second half of the book categorizes names in groups like Saint's Names, 70's-80's names, Rugged Names, Place Names... The writing is funny, clever and helpful. The authors insights are keen and I felt like I shared her opinion on almost everything. Maybe everyone will, maybe that's just me.

One of the things that stood out for us when searching for a name were the suggestions for brother and sister names. We already have a daughter Alaina (Laney) and we're planning to name our future son Rowan. We were talking about how we like the name Jacey and when we looked it up, the suggestions for a sister's name included Laney and the brother's group included Rowan. It was a strange coincidence and it was enough for us to finalize our decision! We were also playing around with the name Kiera (KEE-rah) and found that the suggestions for brother and sister names also included other ones we liked.

This is a really nice informative book, fun to read and has a nice volume of names at 50,000 plus.

Best Baby Name Book Ever 1. Dezember 2005
Von M. Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a jewel of a find. It's not exhaustive lists of names that make you cross-eyed after 5 minutes. I hated going through other baby name books. This one gives a graph of the name's evolving popularity over time, classifies the name in groupings, gives suggestions of brother and sister names for baby etc. It has much more features that you'll have to read. My husband and I named our second child from the suggestions for, say example, Mia. There were names that sound like they belong to the same family like Zoe, Lilly, Ava etc. And if you like lists, there's that too!

On the fence about this one... 27. Mai 2006
Von elviswoman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, so there are a MILLION baby name books out there. I went with this one because I thought it might give cool first/middle name combos or something. But really, it just gave a somewhat limited list of names along with their current popularity status and historical usage via graph. Then the book shows this list recycled by name-type categories (like "Timeless", or "Guys and Dolls", or "Greek"). So the variety i was hoping for wasn't really there. That was kind of dissapointing. On the up side, this book showed me that a name is not unique just because it comes into my mind during an "ah-HA" moment-a lot of names are being used to death due to this kind of thinking. Just look at Madison or Chase! So I did obtain a guideline of what not to name my baby unless I want him/her to be one of 6 kids with the same name in his/her kindergarten class. I found that to be useful information. If you are looking to make sure you don't choose something over-used, OR if you are trying to pick something overused so your kid can blame their credit on the other 6.19 million Brittany's, this really will help you make a great pick. But if you are looking for varied name ideas, you might want to go for one of those 75,000+ BABY NAMES books out there. Just my two cents.

A baby name book that is fun to read! 28. März 2006
Von malinate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book. So many baby books are just unending lists of names and "meanings." This book offers a huge variety of names with a short paragraph for each that talks about popularity trends, nicknames, usage in pop culture, etc. The author's comments are interesting, entertaining, and most importantly they absolutely ring true. My favorite part is the list of sibling names for each name. It is fascinating. It seemed like all of our favorite names showed up on each other's sibling name list. I also loved the groupings of names into style families. The book is informative and fun to read. I highly recommend it.

The publisher took full advantage of the "look inside" feature on Amazon. Being able to see the index is very helpful so you can see just how extensive the list of names is and you will know which names have the detailed "profile" (the ones in bold in the index).

This is by far the best baby name book I have ever seen!

Sister loved this Book 24. April 2005
Von Amy Lynn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just purchased this book about a week ago for my sister who is going to have a new baby anyday now and she just loved it. Ive bought her baby name books in the past but this one is the best she says. It contains everything you can imagine and has history of the name and what the name means. Its unique among all other baby name books. Its the perfect gift for the expecting new mother. Highly Recomended. Enjoy.
