Haven't read read it yet, don't need to really. But flipped through it in the library this morning and it is GREAT. It's well organized into sections I wouldn't have thought of and just generally neat. I think it would make a great gift idea, more so than other baby name books, because it has a little bit of pizazz.

Just ok. Learned some new things from the "liner notes" - including Bob Dylan's previous stage name - but a lot of the meanings and derivations were wrong, a big no no in my book of rules governing baby name books. Also, the names chosen for the lists were weirdly normal. I would have expected a lot more variety.

I didn't get any ideas for baby names in this book but had a lot of fun reading it- learning the stories behind so many musicians names and nicknames.

Really not that great of a book. Seems like such a great idea, but neither me nor my husband enjoyed flipping through the book. Personal preference is all.
