Very Best Baby Name Book Bruce Lansky



Softcover in Good Condition

Very Best Baby Name Book, the #1 best-selling baby name book in the world, is now bigger and better. The most important changes are: even more names (55,000 names vs. 50,000 names previously), more lists to help readers choose (235 lists vs. 150 lists previously), and a special introduction by Bruce Lansky on how to pick a name you and your baby will like. You will find the added information not only fun to read but illuminating and extremely helpful for parents who want to pick names with strong positive associations and avoid names with strong negative associations.

In the previous edition, Lansky had added lists of names with strong positive associations (e.g., intelligence, attractiveness, athletic prowess, good sense of humor) and strong negative associations (e.g., stupidity, incompetence, nerdiness, wimpiness). And, he'd included lists of names associated with famous people in the arts, professions, professional athletics, politics, etc.
