"Reading The Amazing Baby Name Book feels like discussing name choices with your best friends. A great read when you’re looking for a name for a baby (or a pet or a movie character), from the traditional to the unique and unexpected. But also great to read when you have nothing to name at all and are just looking for a smile."

– Jill Santopolo, bestselling author of The Light We Lost

"Best-selling novelist and essayist Ephron and her daughters Maia and Anna share hundreds of baby name ideas, from Abacus to Zuzu, in this attractive teal and orange book illustrated by Jennifer Bricking....[T]his isn’t a typical baby naming book but rather a compendium of fun facts from history, culture, and literature."

– Library Journal

"A must for any new parents or name lovers."

–  Baker Machado, morning anchor, Wake Up with Cheddar

"Accompanied by delightful illustrations, The Amazing Baby Name Book brings humor, historical context, and bonus fun facts to the world of naming....[T]his book is a gold mine of knowledge for all — whether you’re having a baby or coming up with character names for your new TV show." 

– LA Parent

"[T]ake a flip through The Amazing Baby Name Book....The possibilities come with explanations. Go for Amethyst if searching for something 'elegant, sparkly, and slightly ethereal.' If you pick Zen, know 'it’s asking a lot of a kid.'”
