Boldly Go Where No Parent Has Gone Before
Here are 500 out-of-this-world baby names from classic science-fiction movies, books, and television shows. Choose James to honor the captain of the starship Enterprise. Choose Leia or Leah to salute the sister of Luke Skywalker. Choose Neo to celebrate the ultra-cool messiah from The Matrix. Hardcore fans can go even further with exotic names such as Barbarella, Beldar, Jor-El, and Tron (just don't send us the therapy bills).
Arranged by category for quick reference--with chapters such as Power Names, Feminine Names, and Intellectual Names--"Sci-Fi Baby Names" is a terrific gift for expecting parents and a wonderful roll call of our favorite science fiction characters.
