"A" Is for Atticus: Baby Names from Great Books by Lorilee Craker»RATING--4.5 stars.
Note: I read this for character name ideas.
Wow! This is the best name book I have read! I have many things I loved about this book.
1) The names were separated with genders.
»This is a problem I have run into most of the time in the huge 500 pg. name books.
2) It did not have 500 names that start with A, B, C, etc.
»It had the PERFECT amount a names for each letter of the alphabet.
3) I liked that there were some middle name ideas as well.
»Only a tiny small amount, but still helpful.
4) There were names in here that I have never heard of.
»Most name books include the same names that are in EVERY. SINGLE. NAME. BOOK. I get it, but seriously, I want some unique and fresh names...not a name 50 million people in the world are already named.
5) I found names in here that I loved, and will be using in my books.
»If you are looking for a name book for character name ideas, read this book.
