Looking for something beyond Emma & Jacob (click here for more of the 2008 most popular names)? There's a book that will stir up some controversy (is Vesper really a cool name?) and maybe inspire you.

Beyond Ava & Aiden: The Enlightened Guide to Naming Your Baby was penned by Linda Rosenkrantz and Pamela Redmond Satran the ladies behind nameberry.com. If you haven't been to this site to play with potential names you've missed out.

The book bringstheir special brand of genius to a portable paperback. Pick a category. How about "Boyish Names for Girls": Blake, Delaney, Quinn, etc. I for one adore the "International Ideas" section. I think some of these Scandinavian names will get popular: Briet, Anneke (girls) Anders, Sander (boy).

Not only are their enough names to make your head swim, there's also advice on baby naming. For example: "Rule out all names of ex-girlfriends and ex-boyfriends." Buy this to entertain yourself for the next nine months or for a girlfriend who just made her big "I'm expecting!" news. Buy Beyond Ava & Aiden on Amazon $12.95.
