Reviews - What do customers think about Name Book (Repack)?

What's in a name?  May 24, 2010
Awesome reference book to use when researching names, their origin and meaning. This book has been very helpful in my process of selecting character names for my book.
Names  Sep 22, 2009
I bought this for my Dad. He's 91 and wants to know the origins of names. He's having lots of fun looking up names and the book in informative in this way.
Lacking  Feb 25, 2009
This is a good naming book. It skips past the fluff about how to choose a name and dives right into a well organized list and corresponding index. Some unusual names are included, but most are simple and traditional. The origin, meaning, and spiritual connotation is given for each name and a Bible verse is included as a part of each entry. A book icon is used to indicate any name that actually appears in the Bible.

The problem with this book is that it isn't special at all and it doesn't offer anything above and beyond other naming books. The book attempts to provide insight into the spiritual significance of a given name, but fails completely. The spiritual significance, in this case, is derived from the connotation of the name's literal meaning. That means that there is not a concrete reason why a particular name comes to have a spiritual significance. It is simply how the author felt about the name. The Bible verses are always positive and sometimes beautiful, but they seem to have been chosen randomly. You can take any name in this book and replace its corresponding Bible verse with a verse found elsewhere in the book.

I would recommend this book if you are looking for a more traditional name and would like to know what it means and where it originated. Just don't expect any insight deeper than that.
