Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The authors have managed to compile a list of names that falls into that Holy Trinity: Non-Mainstream, Non-Hipster, and Non-"Freakish/Made-Up", a rare Venn-Diagram intersection that is no easy feat. Most of these names fall under the U.S. top 1000, almost guaranteeing there will be very few kids with names on this list. Does it pay off? well...

I read the Nameberry.com forums regularly, hoping that this book would give me some great usable names. However, it seemed like for every usable name, there's a dud (In My Humble Opinion/IMHO), I kept hoping to find a "gem", but names are very personal and individual.

Usable girl names IMHO: Aveline, Clover, Bliss, Camellia, Emmanuelle, Katya, Remi, Waverly
Un-usable girl names IMHO: Adolpha, Afternoon, Cloud, Franny, Gypsy, Placida, Tupelo, Whimsy

Usable boy names IMHO: Auden, Carver, Corin, Grey, Mattias, Penn, Reeve, Soren, Whitaker, Wilder
Un-usable boy names IMHO: Bardo, Calixto, Drummer, Eleazer, Fenno, Gandy, Scorpio, Zbigniew

The glossary actually lists a lot more names than given space to explain in the book, it's in the back. I wish this book had given tips on how to find your own unique name, by sourcing family trees, remembering special cities, life events, etc. which could improve it more.

Again, names are personal. Therefore, you may find this hit-or-miss, or a total throwaway depending on what resonates with you. I ended up giving this book away.

These "names" weren't names. They're just words and the book even points out negative things about some of them in their own comments. Wish I had my money back...
