What expectant parent wouldn't grab onto a proven, fun plan for choosing a baby's name they'll love? A simple ten-step program shows how to determine what's most important to you, as you sift through names according to your family history, what's currently popular, sounds, meanings, ethnicity, originality, and familiarity (not to mention dealing with the suggestions of well-intentioned relatives and friends). You'll draw upon the diverse naming customs in other times and places, and become aware of psychological differences between naming a boy and naming a girl, as well as ways to find solutions when parents disagree. Best of all: more than 20,000 names to trigger your imagination, including sources, meanings, alternative spellings, and shorter and longer versions.
