Editorial Reviews

Review

"There will be no duplication when you pick a name from Hello, My Name is Pabst."—Parenting

Hello, My Name is Pabst  is a funny and refreshing take on the difficult business of figuring out what to call your child. And what not to call it. Probably shouldn't call your child 'it', actually.” —Jeffrey Brown, author of Darth Vader and Son and Cats Are Weird
 
"Finally, a baby name book that breaks fresh ground for the hipster infants of today, who will rule the kindergarten with names like Zuccotti, Seitan, Fixie or Generic Surplus."—Rob Sheffield, author of Love Is a Mix Tape and Talking to Girls About Duran Duran

Very witty, creative fun read.
Michelle B
It'll make a great baby shower gift for expecting parents as well as a fun gift for those just wanting to keep up with naming trends and get a good laugh.

Very funny, but definitely not an actual baby naming book, as a non-English speaker has already commented.

I found this book very interesting and funny, it made me think how far some people go to in finding the one of a kind name. Back in the day when names were simple like Jack, Jane, Bob and Sue everyone in kindergarten could spell their names with ease now a lot of grandparents have trouble with their grandkids names. Wow it is definitely one to get.

Great book! Although I couldn't take most of the suggestions seriously (I didn't expect to) it was a fun read, especially after all the troubles of trying to find that perfect name. I highly recommend this to any soon to be parents!

"Hello, My Name is Pabst" has turned out to be quite the conversation starter. Every time I show it to someone everyone in the room has some interesting or funny stories to tell about that universal conundrum of naming a new life.
It would be a great addition to every coffee table and usually boring waiting rooms!

This book will make you want to reproduce. Very witty, creative fun read. I will be buying this book for all of my expecting friends in he future. Even if they already have the perfect name picked out, this book will nudge someone to a more creative middle name or something awesome to put in the "almost used ____ for baby's name" in the baby book.

Format: Paperback
Vegan baby names, baby names that fit into skinny jeans, names to occupy wall street! What the what! This book is awesome, funny and is the perfect gift for all your pregnant friends who are trying to outdo each other in the crazy baby name department. There are some really creative unexpected baby names in here, and there is something for everyone. I would recommend this to anyone expecting a little one or anyone else obsessed with baby names or looking for a laugh! Good fun!

This book is awesome! I wish I had thought of it. As someone who lives in Hipster-ville (Greenpoint, Brooklyn) and occasionally might be mistaken for one, I appreciate this book. It's fun and funny. Great gift!!

This book is so original and funny, but also incredibly useful and a really creative gift for expecting parents. This will now be what I bring to every baby shower. There's nothing else like it out there. I'm so happy I came across this and can't recommend it highly enough!

Very funny, but definitely not an actual baby naming book, as a non-English speaker has already commented. For future parents looking for a good laugh. I agree this should be catagorized as humor or satire!
