Book Reviews

The Best Baby Name Book for You

One thing you may not know about me—my side gig is working on a baby name website. I’ve adored names since I was a kid, and turned my obsession into a blog, then a job, and even a book, over the past 10 years. I’ll always be a bit name obsessed, even though I’ve broadened my […] Read more…
