I love this book so much. I use this one in conjunction with a larger baby name book to help me with names for characters. This book is perfect for those times when I have an idea of what kind of name I want for a character, but the one I'm thinking of just isn't quite right. I just look up the name that is "almost" right and look in the "brothers" or "sisters" section and it lists other names with a similar feel. They're completely different names, but they seem really similar in their feel, sound, etc. and 9 times out of 10 I find the perfect name when I use this method.

I also use it when I write a sibling or best friend in for a character and I want their names to mesh. In those cases I've already named the main character, but I need a name that really flows with the story (matches the era) and also sounds like it would pair nicely with the main character. In those cases, again, I find the brothers and sisters section to be incredible.

Another fantastic feature that I use all the time are the lists in the back. There are tons of lists all with names that fit into their categories. These have been amazing when I know I want a name for a specific time period (say 40s or 50s), but I can't think of one, I just head over to the "Guys and Dolls" list and pick one. Say I want a really old name, like ancient, yep there's a list for that too. If I want all my characters to have cutesy names, I just use the "Bell Tones" list or "The Ens" and I'll likely find the perfect name.

There are tons of uses for this and I'm so happy to have found it!

As a name nerd, I discovered Laura Wattenburg's website, [...] several years ago, and made extensive use of the Baby Name Voyager tool, fascinated by the graphs of the popularity of names over the last 100 years. When I spotted the book on the shelf of Barnes & Noble, I knew instantly I had to have it. I've read and studied it several times already and am eagerly looking forward to an updated edition with the newest name trends.

What I love about Ms. Wattenburg's book is quoted right on page one of her book: "Knowing that the name Olivia comes from the Latin word for olive doesn't tell you whether there will be three other Olivias on your block." She has created a resource for names based on, in her own words, "fashions, history, and style," which is exactly what I think a name book should be in a society whose number one value is independence.

As the first book of its kind, it is obvious that Ms. Wattenburg has put loads of time and energy into her work. Just researching the popularity of thousands of names across 100 years of history and making visual aids from it is daunting to think about, but she has also looked deeply into the styles of names and endeavored to classify them into groups based on that. The groupings into styles is what I find most helpful of all, because it gives rhyme and reason to why I like the names Callista and Eli, but not Casey or Louie.

This is just a fantastic names book overall, for name nerds and expecting parents alike.

I got this book for the first time about 6 years ago because I have always enjoyed learning about names. Now that I'm pregnant with my first, we got the Kindle version as well. I highly recommend getting the paper copy so that you can flip through more easily and mark the names you like. I find the Kindle version very cumbersome. The sister and brother names are a great feature, particularly if you want to get a sense of how other people might perceive a name you like, or to give you similar names to think about. I also love the categories of names, such as Celtic, Antique Charm, Porch Sitters, Charms and Graces, Bell Tones, African American, etc., that can help you find names you might not think to look for in the A-Z listing. The descriptions and graphs can give you a sense of if the name is getting more or less popular, and if it goes with the types of names people are choosing now. I can't recommend this book highly enough!

We were not looking for a book that just contained lists of names. And this book is not that - it is much more helpful. My favorite part is that is does have some lists that sort names by types. It was great because most of the names I liked were a certain type and it was helpful to see other names in the category.

There was a section that also gave details on how popular a name was and when, along with sibling names, etc. I found this helpful, but lacking. I wish there had been more names in this section and that it gave suggestions for middle names.

For instance, the first name we ended up going with is Ansley - not super common, but not off the wall either. They didn't have that name in the detailed section in that spelling. They had it as the Ainsley spelling with Ansley being a variation of how to spell it. Seems the opposite to me.

I don't regret buying this book and did find it helpful, but had higher hopes.

A nice resource to have with a baby on the way and no clue what to name them. Set up in a way that is conducive to highlighting ones you like and easy to flip back through and see. The categories are a little odd, I'd probably have preferred not to have them, but it did not deter from the usefulness of this book.

The information in this book is neatly organized into categories and themes based on the author's opinions. There are also suggestions for sibling names and warnings about associations people might have with certain names. For example, Katherine and Alexander are good name suggestions for siblings and Elmo is a furry red puppet (these exact examples might not be in the book, but are similar). Ranking is given for the better names and predictions of which names are likely to rise in popularity based on current trends, etc. However, there is limited information about the actual name origins and if you want to know name meanings, you will need to look those up elsewhere. This book was exactly what my husband and I needed to spark discussion and come up with our top 20 names for our third child. I don't know why people think there weren't enough names to choose from. I guess they are looking for something exotic and unusual (stoopid and made up).
