Synopsis: Lists unusual names of animals, apples, politicians, baseball players, cars, businesses, robots, actors, products, writers, and teams, and shares unusual facts about names and nicknames

From School Library Journal: YA Each of these books is a mixture of information, entertainment, and ideas. Historical and linguistic facts about names and name origins are summarized for as many names as possible, showing why certain names come into and go out of fashion. Chapters in both are devoted to nicknames and names of places, streets, pubs, houses, boats, animals, locomotives, and terms of endearment. Dickson, after collecting over 10,000 names, selected the oddest and most interesting for his compendium, dividing them into 33 categories. Assorted anagrams, palindromes, and aptyonymsnames that are aptly suited to their ownersare included. Dunkling's book offers frequency tables, which precede a discussion of the psychological and sociological aspects of names. Both books are full of anecdotes and background material, both fascinating to readers who are interested in the humor of language. Sure to be popular browsing items.
