There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There's a great section that lists classic names for girls and boys that goes into more detail about the origin and meaning of the name, well-know people who share the name and other interesting trivia, but largely this is a book that breaks names down into various categories without detailing meanings. I thought one of the most interesting sections was the list of top 10 names by country.
We've used the book to cross out those names we don't like, circle the ones we do and try to narrow down names from there. Much easier to do that here than in a book packed with just alphabetical columns of names and a word or two about their meaning, in my opinion. This isn't the right book for everyone, but it was definitely the best choice for us.
