Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't recommend it This book does have a lot of names but they aren't sorted by Nationality so you have to sift through the 100,000 names to locate the very few of the nationality I'm after. This book is written more like a dictionary of names from A to Z and no splits between genders. It's all a big melting pot of names from all over, more so, American, English, Spanish, Italian, Jewish... I wouldn't recommend this book just because it's not easy to sort through it.
