For the standard long list of names in alphabetical order, this book does it well. Girls and boys names are separated into two separate lists, one making up the first half of the book, the other the last half.
Just about every name has its meaning and origin listed. Along with it are variations of the name. This was particularly helpful and gave some extra naming ideas.
But if you looking for something more inventive or creative, this book is not it. It's just a list of 20,001 names. Don't get me wrong, it does what it does well. But reading a list that long may start to bore you.
I'd recommend getting "Beyond Jennifer & Jason, Madison & Montana" by Linda Rosenkrantz in addition to this book. This book probably has more names, but the "Beyond Jennifer & Jason" book will probably keep you awake, and give you some good ideas. I have both books, and I'm glad I do.

This book contains everything you want to know about names. You will find definitions, related names, examples of people with the name and much more. A great resource to have as you make a very important decision!

This is a very straightforward book/list of names...there is an extensive selection of names which includes both traditional and exotic names.

This book has many variations of common names, but also many names that are not at all common. I found my son's name and meaning, but I wasn't entirely satified with the girl's section. BOTTOM LINE: Use this book for variation of other books.

For a break, I enjoyed the list from "Breathe! A Guy's Guide to Pregnancy." Names included:
Jack. Derivation: Irish. Orginal Meaning: "God is Merciful." Today's meaning: "My parents used a focus group to come up with my name."
Leo. Derivation: Latin. Original meaning: "Lion." Today's Meaning: "Someone liked Titanic a little too much."
Jesus. Derivation. Hebrew. Original Meaning: "Son of God." Today's meaning: "Utility infielder from the Dominican Republic."
