Recommneded Unique Baby Name Book Jan 30, 2008
This a great Bible name book. Contrary to one review's statement: it does list Zachary (under Zechariah) and Elizabeth (under Elisheva). Zachary and Elizabeth are the English spellings of Zechariah and Elisheva. It is a very unique, concise book with names you don't find in most other books. When we named our daughter Eliana (el-ee-AH-nuh) which means "God has answered me" it was from this wonderful little baby name book.
Name that baby! Oct 24, 2005
My wife and I bought this book because we wanted to find a whole range of Jewish names from which to select one for our new baby expected in April 2006, and also because my wife in particular is a big fan of Anita Diamant. This is a good, if fairly brief, listing of Jewish names, including pronunciation and meanings, the latter of which we believe to be very important. We enjoyed reading through the lists and trying out some unfamiliar names and sounds for the first time.
Only a little helpful Aug 12, 2004
The book is set up to tell you a name and either what it means or where it is located in the Bible. However, it excludes some basic names. For example, Zachary is printed on the front cover, but not included in the book. Also, Elizabeth, the sister of Mary and mother of John the Baptist (I think she is kind of important) is not inluded at all. That alone is very odd since Elizabeth is one of the top baby names right now. Even with its exclusions, it does have some good baby names that you could actually use.
Not a real option to name your baby Sep 20, 2000
The book is very brief, the names covered do not include very much biblical background investigation, and frankly most of the names are very complicated. However, it is a nice option for entertainment, or if you like to study Bible related issues. I do not reccomended for ideas on how to name your baby.
