A hilarious and astounding piece of history March 6 2008
By Nicholas Sherrod - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've read a number of baby name books, but it never occurred to me that among them would be one dedicated to the WORST names possible.
Some of the names in here defy description. It's amazing to think of people actually being named things like Evil Blessing! And they're all from the U.S. Census!

I had a great time reading this with my kids on a recent roadtrip. Highly recommended to all parents: think of the names you could have saddled your kids with!

This is seriously funny! March 16 2008
By Summer Destiny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've read books over the years about what to name the baby, but have never seen a book that is factual and reviews some of the worst names in the U.S. Census. I find it difficult to believe that parents could look at their beautiful baby and name them Wrath or Sloth, but it seems they did. Surely the mothers were not awake when these names were bestowed! A great book and one that will make you laugh when you reflect on someone else's misery!

Hilarious - and a great gift for a baby shower! March 11 2008
By Steve in San Francisco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a hilarious book! A friend gave it to me, and I was howling not only about the names but over the great pictures in the book, too. And if you think you have a reason to hate your parents, you'll think again after seeing names such as Hunter Fisher, Acne Fountain, Lotta Bull, and Nighten Day.

A perfect baby shower gift!

Laughed OUT LOUD! March 4 2008
By R. Hannig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you enjoy laughing this book is for you. I could not believe some of the bad/funny names that are in this book. I gave this book to one of my friends who is having a baby and they loved it. And I guess each one of the names is real names from the U.S. Census. They even put images of the actual Census for some of the names. FUNNY BOOK - LOVED IT!

Needs Format Change Sept. 1 2008
By Sunny Skies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a small book, about 5 x7, which allows it to be 122 pages. Each section had a little history of some of the names, research and sources for information.

Even though this book is sometimes repetitive and boring, I still liked it enough to recommend you check it out of the library. Hopefully you won't be naming your child any of the more unusual names in the book like Gravy Cooks, Late Knight, Super Mann or Brown Rice. I found my eyes glazing and rolling back in my head reading list after list after list of names. I'm not sure how to make the format more interesting. The page layout was okay, but maybe a bigger book with a little more history between shorter lists of the names.
