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.

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.

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!

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.
