Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The intro was excellent, so after reading the sample on Kindle, I decided to order it.

The author promises to bring the reader authentic Native Canadian names, but instead lists random vocabulary/words from various indigenous languages that are most likely not used as names in those cultures. She also prefaces it by saying that true Native names are too sacred to share with the outside world. Great. Then why say you have authentic Native names when you obviously do not.

She also did not go much into Quebecois names, she only had a few names, and most of them were ordinary French names, when early census's have whole lists of interesting and unusual names used by the early French settlers.

She is a talented author, but the book was lacking in terms of "Canadian" Names.
