Every Baby Name (Ruined)

by Brian Kerr, illustrated by Andrew Weldon

What’s in a name?’ Shakespeare asked.

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

Brian Kerr turns a satirical eye on the sickly sweet baby name books to show expectant parents that names really do matter.

It’s not about finding a name for your baby that you love, it’s about finding one you can’t hate. And it can only take one bit of information to strike it from the shortlist forever. This book does the heavy lifting and spoils them all, from Aaron and Angel to Zara and Zachary. 

Every Baby Name (Ruined) is perfect for expecting parents, their families, and everyone who feels obliged to buy them a gift. 

About the Author

Brian Kerr is a baby name expert and liar who currently lives in Perth. He’s written for some of Australia and the UK’s biggest humour websites and TV panel shows.

Every Baby Name (Ruined) is his first, and possibly last, book.
