    DescriptionHere's an irreverent twist on a perennial gift book genre: the baby name book meets the weird, unusual, other worldly realm of science fiction. "Sci-Fi Baby Names" compiles 500 distinctive names from sci-fi books, movies, and TV shows into a handy reference with a crazy, retro, sci-fi design. Think babies on rocket ships! Babies with laser guns! Babies on Mars! This book has something for everyone. Many sci-fi fans will feel comfortable naming a child "Luke," "Robbie," or "James Tiberius" to honor their favorite characters. But a few fans will boldly go where no parents have gone before-with outlandish names like "Zardoz," "Klaatu," and "Davros."

    Review quote
    "It used to be that parents would look to the Bible or history or long-gone relatives to find a name for their baby. Then Mom and Dad began looking to singers and sports starts and movie actors and actresses for inspiration. Now comes Brooklyn writer Robert Schnakenberg with a new source: science-fiction characters."--"Chicago Tribune" " " "Tempted to name your son Yoda? A new book called "Sci-Fi Baby Names" can help you make that important decision".""--"Newsday" " " "Baby names such as 'China' and 'Moon Unit' are so yesterday. Now your kid can be 23rd century from Day One if you zap him or her with a name from the new book "Sci-Fi Baby Names"."--"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"
