not really something to sit down and read, but it is a useful source if you're a writer.
Totally fun. God almighty, DON'T name your kid anything from this book, but it's totally fun to read, and pretty good to work from if you are a writer, especially if you are doing National Novel Writing Month and need a name in a hurry for some fantasy character who turned up late.

If you insist on some weird-ass name for your poor baby boy, I recommend Nard, which I had thought was a Biblical perfume but Browder translates as Persian for chess. Or, first choice, Nalren: "(NAHL-ren) Dene Indian
I have an older version of this book, but I use it all the time. No, I don't have countless children... But I am a writer always looking for new names. You can't name every male character Joe and every female character Sally, now can you? :-D

This book did not have every single name, but did have an interesting collection of names. It was interesting to read more about names, and how they can affect your child's life. An interesting read.
MY daughter requested me to buy this for her from a used books warehouse. She intends to use it in naming characters in her story writing exercises. I hope she finds it handy.
