1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely outdated Aug. 11 2013

I ordered this book because my husband and I are having a baby and we wanted a traditional Irish name. This book is so outdated, we had never even heard of most of the names in here. We ended up googling our baby name. What a waste of money.

It's fantastic that this book even exists, but it falls short. It is not very inclusive nor comprehensive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty but not useful Dec 26 2007
By IrishMama - Published on
Format: Paperback
Beware of this book if you, like me, are pregnant and trying to find the perfect Irish name before your baby is born. The book is very pretty and informative about the names it actually has. However, although it has 90 pages of names there are only 1-3 names per page and several pages have pictures with no names. In fact, it has only 80 boy's names and 71 girl's names. I believe they took the most popular names and gave the reader a paragraph on the origin of each, which is nice but now I still need to buy another book to make sure I've also considered the many more obscure Irish names for my baby.
