"The Complete Book of Baby Names is a great resource if you are naming a baby, and, it''s also an interesting read. Busy Girl has been using it to inform all her friends what their names mean.Most importantly, though, it covers what NOT to name your baby. I''ll let you check that one out yourself."
"Since this is my third child, I''ve been through my share of baby name books, about 2 a pregnancy. This one I found as my favorite, not just the first few chapters but the list of names are wonderful and broken not just into boy andgirl categories but lists of popular names by country, twin names and hordes of other lists. You''ll be amazed, as I was."
"If you''re going to choose one baby name book and get the most bang for your buck, this is a good one to go with. It''s more complete and helpful than any other single book I''ve seen out there and short of turning it into an OED-style multi-volume set, I''m not sure there''s much more the author Lesley Bolton could pack in."
"The Complete Book of Baby Names is so fun too. It isn''t just a list of names - it is like a course in baby-naming! With chapters on baby-naming history, naming trends, the attributes of a perfect name, middles names, etc. as well as 276 fun name lists like popular names in different countries, and bizarre lists such as the names of models, First Ladies, Reality TV Stars and more, this book could keep me going until I deliver!"
"We''ve seen a lot of baby name books in our time, some good, and some not so good. This one''s a good one...It has the big list, so that you can look up the definitions of the names that you''re considering. But, it also teaches you how to pick a really great name for your little bundleof joy... So, if you just want definitions, this book''s got those.
