Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Irish Names?

An excellent resource of you are considering an Irish name for your child  Jul 29, 2008
The Irish brought many things with them when they left their native land and went to the United States. Along with leprechauns and other myths, they include their names. As is the case in any culture, the name is generally an abbreviation for a more exalted title and a linguistic modification of another name. For example, Sean is the Irish form of John and means "God's gracious gift."
This book contains the explanation of over 150 Irish names, roughly evenly split between male and female. If you are about to have a baby or are just interested in the origins of common Irish names, then this is a book that will interest you.
 
Pretty but not useful  Dec 27, 2007
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.
