5.0 out of 5 stars amazing and astonishing! March 7 2002
By allison
I recently discovered "the secret meaning of names" and am, to say the least, absolutely amazed! So far I have read the descriptions of the personality traits, social traits, health, pshychology, intelligence, and emotional nature of 13 of my family and friends. And, much to my amazement, every one accurately depicts each of these people. What an amazing book, either for research or entertainment, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the study of names or people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable! May 2 2000
By Wendi
I am only 17 but I love names. Out of my collection of 20 baby name books, this is my absolute favorite. I thought this book was truly unbelievable. It is amazingly accurate in describing the character of a person by his or her name. Even a skeptic will be shocked by the descriptions. My family members have read about their names and have been in complete awe. If not for your baby, buy it for yourself! It's so right...it's a little creepy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing Oct. 13 2005
I am awaiting my own copy of this book. A friend has it and we looked up my name. I thought the answer was okay but didn't think it was a complete fit. My friend said, "There is only one other person I know who didn't think the description fit her. We looked up her middle name and she was blown away by the accuracy." So was I! What the author had written explained me and my life so well that I almost cried. This is why I always include my middle initial in my name now - because I want to keep the energy present in all representations of my name. Check it out for yourself.
