Here’s an irreverent twist on a perennial gift book genre: the baby name book meets the weird, unusual, otherworldly realm of science-fiction. Sci-Fi Baby Names compiles 500 distinctive surnames from sci-fi books, movies, and TV shows into a handy reference with a crazy, retro, sci-fi design. Think babies on rocket ships! Babies with laser guns! Babies on Mars! This book has something for everyone. Many sci-fi fans will feel comfortable naming a child “Luke,” “Robbie,” or “James Tiberius” to honor their favorite characters. But a few fans will boldly go where no parents have gone before—with outlandish names like “Zardoz,” “Klaatu,” and “Davros.” Entries are concise, consisting of the name, its “geographic” and “textual” origin (e.g. the fictional planet and book/movie/TV show where it originated), a brief explanation, and in some cases, common variations, a quotation, or a bit of trivia.
