Not as amusing as I had hoped. It was mostly the same thing over and over again. Some truly horrific names and at least we can be sure that they were all true, but it was unsatisfying. The stories the author added were more enjoyable than the lists. Read full review

These are names given to people that appeared in US census records prior to 1930. There are names like: Babel Fish, Iscariot Day, Fairy Knight, Darth Wimbish, Zombie Davenport, and others. Most of these come from Ancestry.com records. Quick read, and for those who like names (like I do), fun. Read full review
