The biggest thing I hate about this book is the producers did not provide a concise list for searching by origin/country. I personally like to view the names that originated from my ancestral background. I like choosing at least one option with that atavistic feel to it as an honor and acknowledgement of where our family came from and how we got here today.
I would also have liked the book to have better division between sections it is a real solid search to find where one ends and another begins. The cover also should have been hardbound since the size is so massive. The cover as it is lacks the support to keep the book looking nice and neat also you can never set it upright unless you have other books holding it in place.
This book is a treasure-trove for name enthusiasts. Every page turns up something fascinating, such as this intriguing name I found while browsing: Simaetha, a beautiful witch in a poem by the classical Greek poet Theocritus, and also the name of a genus of spiders.
The book has indices which list all names by gender and theme (elements, seasons, colors, astrological signs, etc.). There is also an impressive bibliography included, for further reading.
I highly recommend this book!
I also highly recommend the author's blog, for additional, fascinating name offerings to appeal to the pagan aesthetic: NookofNames.com
