About the Author

Babynames.com is run by sisters Jennifer Moss, Mallory Moss, Sue Moss, Kate Moss Glinsmann, and mom and grandmother Peggy Moss. According to Google and Yahoo, it has been the top site for researching names since 1996. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Jennifer Moss was born and raised in Evanston, Illinois and is a graduate of Northwestern University. With an affinity for computers and programming, she entered the technology field upon graduation. In 1989, she relocated to Los Angeles where she worked as an Information Technology Manager for several international law firms.

In 1996, Moss launched one of the first parenting websites, BabyNames.com. She also served as Director of Development and consulted with several Los Angeles internet companies, including eToys.com, Korn/Ferry's Futurestep and WithoutaBox.com, later acquired by IMDB.

Jennifer began her writing career as a freelance author for articles about the internet industry in 2000. Her first book, The One-in-a-Million Baby Name Book was published in 2008 by Perigee Press (a division of Penguin) as a companion to her website.

Jennifer Moss's debut novel, Town Red, is the first in a series of mysteries with a "metaphysical twist."

Jennifer divides her time between Los Angeles and her home in the mountains.

Format: Paperback
I was really disappointed by the lack of in-depth information about the meanings and origins of the names. The descriptions from their website - what people thought of a person with a particular name was pretty useless. They all pretty much said the same thing - funny, kind, friendly. Blah blah blah. You're better off asking your friends and family their opinions. I think it's the only baby name book I've ever seen that did not split up boys & girls names, but this didn't bother me much. Just be aware if you prefer separate sections. I ended up returning this book to get something else.

Has probably any name you could ever imagine. The only thing I would change would be to have separate boy and girl sections instead of putting them all together.

Format: Paperback
I must admit I've been using BabyNames.com regularly for years. After all, a fiction writer is a parent, sometimes of hundreds of children, and he/she needs the perfect name for each of his/her characters. So I awaited the publication of this book with positive eagerness. And I was not disappointed. For a writer, one of the most useful sections is "Names to Avoid". Want to find the perfect name for a heavy? There you are! Of course in my own fiction like Micaela Morris in Jo's Heaven and Other Stories and MEXICAN AUTUMN, I didn't wish to be too exotic, but at the same time I wished to avoid the over-used "Tom", "Dick" and "Harry". The "One-in-a-Million Baby Name Book" provides perfect answers to a writer's prayer.

I hated this book. All the names are mixed together, so if you're only wanting to look at boy names, you have to go through all girl names too. Waste of time.

WHEN MY GRANDAUGHTER TOLD US THE NAME SHE HAD PICKED OUT FOR MY GREAT GRANDAUGHTER I CRINGED AND ORDERED THIS BOOK.
HER AND HER HUSBAND FOUND AN ADORABLE NAME THAT THE ENTIRE FAMILY LOVED. THIS BOOK ALSO TELLS THE MEANING OF THE NAMES. WE DONATED THE BOOK TO THE HOSPITAL LIBRARY, HOPEFULLY THIS WILL HELP OTHER PEOPLE FROM NAMING THEIR CHILD AFTER A FRUIT OR A VEGETABLE!

This book is unique and a great resource for parents-to-be and name aficionados alike. It presents great insight from real-life namers, a step-by-step guide to naming your child and polls from thousands of the parent site's visitors. A must-have!
