this book was very helpful for us deciding on our daughters names. I liked to highlight the names I liked and then my husband highlighted them in a different color so we could see the ones we could agree on.

There are a lot of bad names in this book. It seems that every food, color, season, etc is a name. If you want a selection of traditional names, don't choose this book.

We bought this book for both of our daughters when they became pregnant and both have enjoyed hours of reading looking for just the right name. The book includes the name origins, which can help when picking a name for your child.

Many of the name meanings are completely made up. I know a bit about Japanese names in particular and was able to pick up on the butchery of their meanings. The author listed the name Hoshi as meaning shines when it actually means star. She says Sakura -a not uncommon name amongst people who study names- means wealthy, but it really means cherry blossom. And then there are names like Tam, Tsuhgi which are listed as Japanese but are not even possible in the Japanese language. She claims Azimah to be Japanese (not possible since Japanese names and words cant end in h) and that its from the name Azami and means flower. Apparently she doesn't realize you cant take a name, switch the letters around and claim they're the same. That's like if I were to change Amy to May and claimed they were the same.
I don't know what language Lanee is supposed to be from, but it is simply listed as being an Asian name. Seriously. Asian. I'm rather surprised she didn't put oriental instead and that other names weren't simply listed as white or black.

This is an old book, but I'm still frustrated at how someone could be allowed to publish this utter nonsense.

The title may hail this book as "50,001 Best Baby Names," but it feels more like about 1,000 normal names and a list of everything from countries to body parts to animals that are supposed to be names. My wife and I hoped this book would give us a few ideas on what to name our recent addition to the family. We already had a list of potential names, but thought that this book would introduce us to a few new names or help us decide whether or not to keep a few borderline names. Well, it does have quite a few interesting names (if you can call them actual names) in it, but for the most part this book is a standard list of normal names with a bunch of idiotic and bizarre words thrown in to meet the 50,001+ quota.

This book is a waste of both time and money. You're best bet is to look up names on the internet. All of the names and meanings that Diane Stafford has compiled in this book can be found on the web for free. I only gave this book two stars because a couple of her lists were interesting to read. Overall, however, this book isn't worth the paper it's printed on. Stay away!!

I've never yet seen a baby name book this bad. (And I've seen dozens, having studied name trends extensively in grad school.)

There are a great many made up names,--made up, I think, so that the author could list 50,001 as her name total. And the "definitions!" Yikes! Another reviewer wrote that the author seems to have made up the definitions, and this seems to be right. They don't even agree with references ON the SAME PAGE. Rosalia is supposed to be Italian and mean "hanging roses," while Rosalie, listed as English, is supposed to mean "striking dark beauty." In her introduction, Stafford says you might not want to name your child Delilah after you find out it means "whimpering harlot guttersnipe." No it doesn't. Not even in her own book. What kind of dumb joke was that?

In addition to the made up names and imaginary definitions, there is no pronunciation guide. So I guess any way you want to say the nonsense names is fine.

If you were never a student of a language other than English, you might be fooled by the definitions, and if you want to choose your baby's name(s) by the cute sounds, this is the book for you. By all means avoid it if the meaning of a name has some importance for you.

Although no reference book is perfect, try __Baby Names: A New Generation__ or __Aaron to Zoe__.

This book has a lot of names. I'll give it that. But, there are some relatively common names that are missing. And so many invented names. My favorite of the invented names are Schmoopie and Poogie. As if these names will show up on a birth certificate!!

The definitions/origins of the names are poorly researched and confusing.

For the name "Cowboy" the book tells you it means "country" for the name "Country" it tells you it means "western".

Not that either of those is a standard name, but, for "words as names" aren't you going to pick it because it has meaning to you?

Also, the lists are totally false, something the author (if you can call her that) made up while sitting around drinking with her buddies. And some of the names on these lists aren't even found later in the book. (ex. Lynus on the "Party animals" list)

I wish I had held out for a trip to the bookstore instead of just picking up the first book I saw at Walmart. I figured with so many names I would find one I liked, but I am just so distracted by all the junk that I will never find a good name here.
