What is in a name? Dec 20, 2008
I liked the structure of the name information as well as the accompanying scripture for each name. I just wish more names were included and I hope they expand the list!
A wonderful resource Sep 23, 2008
A great resource to find the meanings of names as well as their spiritual connotations. I have found it helpful in dream interpretation as well.

The Name Book Jun 13, 2008
This book not only aids you when naming a baby but if you play games like the sims 2 on pc were you create sims and have to name them it comes in handy too.I created so many I started to run out of names so I got this book and found many more to use.If you have the sims 2 on pc this book is essential because you will eventually run out of names to call your sims.This book not only features over 10,000 names but also their meaning I highly recommend it.
Excellent!!! Jun 5, 2008
I bought a few name books from this site, this one being by far the best. All names imaginable are in here, even names that would be considered American Ghetto names that I thought were made up have Biblical roots. Many Asian (Japan, China,etc) as well as Mid Eastern names.
Be careful, once you open this book, it's nearly impossible to put it down!
