User Review  - SandSing7 - LibraryThing

This book is burdened by too many names that are ridiculous, as opposed to just unusual or unique. In addition, all nicknames are listed separately and without definitions, which made the index cumbersome and nearly impossible to navigate on my ereader. I would not recommend it. Read full review

User Review  - onyxfox - LibraryThing

Alright, this is done by the same author that did The Very Best Baby Name Book. Even though it offers more names... this one is 100,000 and the other is only 30,001... still wouldn't recommend. The only difference really is he added a ton of unusual names... like Clotario. Spare yourself! Read full review
