The Name Book: Over 10,000 Names – Their Meanings, Origins, and Spiritual Significance by Dorothy Astoria is a book that contains a list of over 12,000 classic, contemporary, and names including their meaning and origins, as well as spiritual significance. A verse of Scripture also accompanies each name listed in the book.

PROS

The book is perfect for those who want to choose a meaningful name for their soon-to-be children. The names listed on the book are also provided with their variations. An outline of a family tree is also included which the readers can use to list down the names of their relatives from the Mother and Father’s side. It is very easy to read and can also be very fun to use even to those who are not going to be parents yet.

CONS

Those who are looking for more gender-specific names will be disappointed because the book neglects to categorize the names as male or female. Others will be disappointed by how a number of the names sound different or strange. The spiritual aspect may also not that appealing to those who are not very religious.
