Not only does it give the you name's origin & meaning, the author then gives you the "real world" breakdown for kids who end up with that name. Some of the comments are outright funny but SO dead-on (like: "Chauncy will get your kid beat up on the playground" and "if you want to name your baby 'John' why did you even spend money on a baby book??") LOL It helps you realize what may be a "trendy suspenders" name, meaning: SO cool now and all the rage, but will wear off and be looked back at with a shudder, ie: mullets, parachute pants, etc., and what others may relate your child's name to (like Forest/Forrest - people forever shouting at your child "Run, Forest! Run!").
I just ordered this for my pregnant friend, not just for help to pick a name but also an entertaining way to rule some names out. I highly recommend it for any Gen-Xers because it's tuned to our humor and generation perfectly.

Didn't find "the name" in here but helped getting the creative juices flowing.

It's an ok start to our name search. I like the cleverness in some of the tips. Just feels like it's lacking in some way. Maybe just not enough names.

First off, in case you see this, Mom, there's no need to get excited. With that out of the way, I have to say that for a baby-name book, Puffy, Xena, Quentin, Uma is a great read: It's hip, sarcastic, snappy, and fun. Much more than a list of names and meanings, Joal Ryan weaves together pop culture references and Generation X sensibilities to highlight the plusses and minuses of traditional and more ... interesting names. It's by no means an encyclopedic reference, but it does a fine job of highlighting well-worn standards, up-and-coming trendy names, and timeless classics.

I'm an amateur writer, and I LOVE Puffy, Xena, Quentin, Uma! This is an excellent book that will help you come up with great, contemporary and hip names for modern characters. No more, should your contemporary characters be stuck with names like Justin, Lance, and Alex. Instead, your characters could be called: Gage, Ozmon, and Lizbet! Each chapter header comes complete with famous 'real people' who are using the names in question. I love it.
My only peeve with this book, is the low quality paper it is printed on. This paper is a very low grade, and seems only a few grades above toilet paper. Don't let this deter you, however. This is a great book. A must buy.

I was sitting down thumbing through the pages of another book and getting NOWHERE. I was having about as much fun as one has trying to BBQ in a rainstrom.
I needed a book that would work for me. I saw the title of this book a decided that it might be worth a good chuckle to atleast look at. This is the book!!! I love the way she has organized it. The little "Crib Notes" are a great eye-opener and a good chuckle. It saves you time, thought and the ever-so-friendly opinions from family and friends when you might be considering naming your child Elvira or Shaq.
Having grown up during the same time as her audience, Joal is in tune with the reader. She doesn't bother listing some names that haven't been used in 100 years just so she can have a book of 25,000+ names. She is smart and gives names that you might actually consider naming your child.
If you are looking to enjoy naming your baby, I highly recommend this book. If you are just looking for a name (like for the pet goldfish) then the book on the checkout stand (you know, the one by the National Enquirer) will work just fine.
Trends tips and trivia,wonderful Ideas and insight into names although I disagree with some of what Joal was saying this is number 10 on my top of the top baby names list. This guide might be helpful to some parents but they need to think for them selves too don't just listen to the book.
