The Bizarre Baby Name Book by K. Alex Shaw is a humorous, easy to read book offering advice on what not to name your baby. There are several books suggesting baby names, but this book offers advice on names to avoid. With several chapters arranged alphabetically, it’s easy to look up names, or just read the whole book. The Bizarre Baby Name Book has 124 pages, so you can read the book in an evening or two. The Bizarre Baby Name Book cautions parents against following the latest trend of choosing original names or changing the spelling of existing names. Parents, godparents, and grandparents should choose a name after much consideration about how others will perceive that name. If other people cannot spell a name or say it, avoid it. Imagine that you’re a supply teacher taking attendance; how would they pronounce your child’s name?
K.A. Shaw provides reasons for avoiding a particular name, or falling for fad names. The Bizarre Baby Name Book suggests you avoid celebrity names, such as Harry, Oprah, Barack, or Yoko. This is the perfect gift for a pregnant friend, co-worker, or family member. K.A. Shaw makes parents aware of names that your child will regret for the rest of their lives. Rather than reading a book full of thousands of baby names, The Bizarre Baby Name Book makes it easy for you to delete the names that will get your child laughed at or bullied at school or work. I enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek, hilarious book.
