    Would you read a name book comprised of only extremely unusual names?

    Names that have never been in the top thousand and fall in categories such as: unusual word names, historical and mythological figures and places, scientific names of things, nature, fantasy, obscure choices from other cultures. My signature should provide somewhat of an example.

    I'm considering turning my fairly large collection into a book, so I'm curious if there is any interest in this sort of thing. Thanks

    Frankie, I can tell you that our Off-the-Grid Baby Names book, which is names never in the Top 1000 but organized alphabetically not by type, is our best-selling book. But I can also tell you that it's tough to sell name books in this era of.....Nameberry, ie lots of free good name information on the web.

    If you write your book and want to sell it as an ebook, we'll consider offering it on the Nameberry store. And you can guest-blog to help draw attention to it....which is something you are welcome to do anyway! Would be fun to have more Berry Juice blogs about cool unusual name discoveries.
