When you are tryiing to come up with a name for your baby, it was more important to me know how popular it is and how it may be perceived than it is of welsh origin and means "white wave"- I am sure that did not come at all into play to the millions of moms that named their daughters Jennifer in the 70's and 80's. They just liked the way it sounded and their favorite movie may have been "Love Story". This book is for people who want some ideas on what other people are doing, and then they can follow the trend, or buck it, as they choose.
So, I bought this one. Not only has it given us some inspiration and sent us in directions we would not have gone otherwise, it has also given us some much needed laughter.

This book doesn't have anything unheard of. It has some lame make you own name ideas. Like instead of Anthony it's Anfrony. Lame.Published on January 5, 2007 by Makenna Mae
