Bad Baby Names

DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Blog: Ancestry's "Bad Baby Names" book:

"Michael Sherrod and Matthew Rayback authors of 'BAD BABY NAMES' organically created the book after researchers began discovering and sharing census images that had odd and interesting names. 'What started as occasional e-mails passed around on quiet afternoons turned into us scouring records for names that stood out for, well, their unique stopping power,' according to author Michael Sherrod. 'Trust me, when you come across Wild Looney or Cash Favors, you pause and tell your nearest co-worker.'"
