The Complete Book of Unusual Names If you are looking for unique and different names, this is your one-stop resource. Some of the names will roll off your tongue, some bounce, some even tap dance. The author encourages us to, "Try thinking of a name as a dash of color that you give to the world; a way to leave your mark, like an elaborate scarf wound through auburn hair or a periwinkle, paisley tie that everyone admires." With over 1000 names, complete with usage examples, readers seeking a non-traditional first or middle name can bet there won't be five others in the class bearing the same name. "Dr. Spock has seen your letter and your manuscript and has asked me to respond. He thinks your book is good, but he is right in the middle of revising Baby and Child Care and cannot do other work until he has finished this. The publishers have a deadline and they keep calling for the finished product. I hope your understand and we appreciate your thinking of Dr. Spock." --Mary Morgan for Dr. Spock "You have a wonderful idea for a book" --Dr. T. Berry Brazelton "David has researched and presented to us a unique and tantalizing list of names, each of which parents my proudly bestow on a new-born child, knowing the value in new life is honored by the time spent searching for 'the name, ' a name to take along on the adventure that is life." --Nancy Ellis Baker PhD. Child Psychologist
