Naming Your Baby: The Definitive Dictionary of First Names (Paperback)

£6.99
Usually despatched in 7-10 days.

Synopsis

Naming Your Baby is the essential A-Z guide for deciding your child's name. Much more than just a list of baby names, this book is a fascinating guide for expectant parents, as well as a wider reference resource for historians, writers and researchers. It contains over 1,500 possible choices, from Aaron to Zuleika, through the old-fashioned (Hazel and Gilbert), the modern (Jade and Devon), the unusual (Anselm and Tanith) and the most popular (Chloe and Jack). It reveals who has influenced the popularity of names, including film stars (Mia), biblical figures (Isaac) and fictional characters (Harry), and suggests why Chelsea, April, Rose or Ebony might be appropriate - or inappropriate! - for your child. Names with shared roots are gathered together in the same entry: you might decide against Helen in favour of Ellen, Elaine or Illona, or even need to switch at the last minute from Sean to Shauna...
