Bruce Lansky, the author of this book, has been writing similar books for quite a number of years now, and is regarded as an expert on baby names.

This expertise really shines through with this book. It features a nice compromise between the encyclopedic approach of some other books, which try to list every single possible name, and recommendations on choosing a name which is nicely unique without being weird!

It also contains a lot of information on the most commonly used names over the past few years, and highlights names that are becoming popular right now. If you want your child to have a fashionable name, this is great. Equally, if you want to choose a name which is nicely old-fashioned, or likely to be unique amongst the children at your child’s nursery, then these lists are really useful.

In addition, the book has several other features to recommend it:

PROS
  • The way in which this book analysis trends amongst baby names is really handy. Parents can easily see the top 100 most popular names at the moment, as well as names that are rapidly rising or falling in popularity.
  • The book also groups names by linguistic or cultural origin, so you can easily see a list of Hispanic names, for instance. The book is really encyclopedic here, and contains lists for dozens of different languages.
  • The list of the most popular gender-neutral names is also great. This list breaks down the usage of these names, also, so you can easily see if they are more often used for boys or girls.
  • And lastly, the book has a list of infamous celebrity baby names! Whilst we would not recommend following some of the more silly examples in this list, it is really fun to read, and provides a welcome relief from poring over lists of likely names!
CONS
  • Though the book does indeed contain 100,000+ names, this statistic is a little misleading, because it counts all the different possible spellings of each name. For most parents, this is not really an issue, because they will focus on quite a short list of names, but some found this frustrating.
