Description

Here'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."show more

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.

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"show more
