For anyone who is researching German names and family genealogy this book is the definitive, in-depth, and scholarly work in the field of German names. A "must own" book for the serious researcher of German families and names

A great book for the amateur genealogist. It is light enough that, unlike many books on the subject, it is readable, yet it contains a wealth of information. The book description says "some entries will provoke a chuckle, others a bit of embarrassment, still others a sense of wonder and pride." This is certainly true. As a person of German heritage who (sadly) does not speak German, I was indeed filled with a sense of wonder when I looked up my great-grandfather's name, Hundesauger.

I gave this book 5 Stars because it IS a very GOOD book, unfortunately it is also a book that did not meet my needs. My hobby is local history in a predominantly German county in Illinois. I was hoping to find a lot of the local surnames, as a reference for spelling and to provide insight to their origins. No such luck. Many local surnames ARE in the book --- but enough are missing to disappoint me. I have the feeling this book was written for a more scholarly application than mine.

I was a little disappointed with this book because many of my German ancestor's names weren't listed. I looked for variations of the spellings and still didn't find anything. So, this book left me with more questions than answers.
