I just received the third edition of "The Baby Name Wizard" by Laura Wattenberg. I love different styles of names so this book is my naming Bible. After giving a brief synopsis of the individual names that includes sister and brother names, she goes on to group them in lists like "Antique Charm", "Brisk and Breezy", "Guys and Dolls", "Lacy and Lissome", "Mythological" etc...
I have over a hundred baby name books (I began my name obsession very early in life and before the Internet). I also have the book mentioned by Ottilie above which is quite good too.
Nameberry founders Pam and Linda have a great one too called "The Baby Name Bible".
