Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Cons: It got repetative and I don't feel like there were that many names. Plus I feel like the meanings were very vague. I one of the chapters nearly all of the names either mean "blessed," or "God's gift."
Overall this book is okay. It could be exactly what you are looking for or completely miss the mark depending on your personality. I will probably be buying another book.
Top reviews from other countries
I would encourage anyone interested in buying this book to scroll down and read the reviews from customers in America as well. As one customer said, it is a brilliant resource 'for fiction writers', especially if you're looking to give your characters names that have meaning to the character or reflect their personalities. And don't worry: although there are plenty of unsual names included in the book, there are just as many traditional Western names as well :)
