The Complete Book of Baby Names

The Complete Book of Baby Names Review

If you are looking for the book with the most names, then this is it!

The approach here is truly encyclopedic, containing every single name you have ever heard of, and thousands you haven’t!

Whilst this book is not the most helpful in helping you to choose a name, it can be great if used in conjunction with another book. Once you have narrowed down your list of possible names, a quick look at this book will give you all the possible spellings and varieties of each name.

PROS
  • Alongside its huge list of names, the book also includes a huge number of themed lists to help you choose the perfect name. These are intuitively themed, so that if you want to give your child an intellectual, creative name, or a name which evokes a strong leader, then you can find one!
  • Like most baby name books, this book includes a list of the most popular names. This is great if you want to find a name which is truly unique, or at least nicely unusual!
  • The variations and nicknames list is also really handy – you can instantly see which nicknames are associated with your chosen name, which can help in avoiding unfortunate ones!
  • Lastly, there is a great section on what not to name your baby. Whilst the parents we talked to were definitely not considering any of the names on this list, it is an entertaining read, and helps to break the tedium of poring over your preferred options!
CONS
  • The sheer size of this book meant some parents found it frustrating to use. It is useful, of course, to have every single variation of a name listed, but the sheer number of entries here make finding the one you want a little time-consuming. This book is best used in conjunction with another.
