    Book details

A name is for life! It may be sad, but it is certainly true that you don't meet too many high-flying, successful guys called Wayne or Elvis. What you hope for your baby to become, is as much a consideration as the names you like. The decisions you make will create an image or style that your baby will have to grow up with - and grow into. You owe it to this experience to consider a wide choice of names. You should browse and extract names from this book. The issues are many. From trendy to traditional, and from the popular to the sophisticated. You have to strike the balance that you feel is right for your baby. I have been studying names for many years and I have come to believe that names choose themselves - if you will allow. Mum knows her infant well, through the subliminal relationship she has built carrying her child. Intuitively she will understand whether her baby is a Nigel or a Tom, a Claire or a Holly. This book introduces you to the many ways to name your baby with style and suitability. Meaningful names, musical names, mystical names...Enjoy the sounds and meanings of these richly varied names. Note their exotic backgrounds and consider the numerous variations we provide on so many of them.

Before you commit your child to a name for life, browse through this book.

  • By Miss H L Belasco on 1 March 2005

    A clear and concise resource of every baby name you could think of and their classic meanings. This book is a nice mixture of traditional and modern for those who are undecided about which direction to go in. Unlike some books which include every baby name under the sun including potential names that no parent would dream inflicting on their child this title knows where to draw the line - highly recommended!

    I don't know how people can say this book doesn't suggest rediculous names, 'ANAL' for a girl, who would even consider calling their child this???!!! I would hope no one! I bought it because it said classic and modern names but the classic names are the very common Laura, Sarah, Anne etc and then the modern names are ridiculous, many of them foreign and completely unthinkable unless you have an unusual surname with which an outrageous name wouldn't sound so bad. I only read to O in the girls's names before giving up hope on finding anything remotely suitable unless I chose something run of the mill which I didn't want. I was hoping to find a name that was slightly different without being too weird but this certainly isn't the book to do this, it goes from the mundane to the ridiculous. Totally not worth the money.

    Seriously they called it 7000 names and then went through the Bible, shakespear and then invented the rest of them. it should be renamed 7000 names that could lead to your child being seriously bullied, Why would you name your child, Gentilis!!! If you want to make your child hate you and save yourselves the price of this book go to Wikipedia and look up Bible names.

    Just the thing when you need inspiration and help to choose one of the most important decisions one will have to make as the wee one will have it for life and it is lovely to have the meaning of the name you favour as well as a great choice for the 2nd and even a third name too . Bought for son & daughter-in-law who thought it was a great idea .

    Bought this book because cover stated that it had classic and modern names. However, there were very few if any classic names (none). They did have 6,900 unheard/weird names.Complete waste of money!

    I found this book had lots of names missing and lots of un-realistic names you wouldn't ever choose! I suppose it's ok if you want something completely weird!!

  • By T. Smith on 18 June 2007

    I was fairly disappointed with this book and instantly ordered an alternative as it just wasn't useful for me. The choice of names within each letter of the alphabet was very limited and the focus tends to be on classical names rather than modern so very little choice unless you want to call your child something very unusual!
