The book is grouped into categories, and sure, some of them are a little unusual. We aren't the types to name our kids after a video game character or a supermodel, but some of the other categories were right up our alley. I especially loved the suggestions for taking an ordinary name and tweaking it slightly to make it more unusual or exotic. Great idea! This book also reminded me of names I hadn't thought about in years, many of which I hadn't seen on the "free" websites.
All in all, definitely worth checking out if you are stumped for names and want something that not half the other kids in preschool will have.
On a side note, a great web resource is the Baby Name Wizard. Loved how that site charts the popularity of names over time and puts it into an easy to read format. I got the book by the same guys and it's okay. It just seems like another baby name book with lists of names. The website presents the information in a much better format in my opinion.
