Format: Paperback
Ms. Todd brings us an assortment of 2,000 Celtic names from six Celtic countries/regions, including Cornwall and Brittany. All entries are cross-referenced and include variants of spelling and pronunciation guides. Commentary includes the names in myth, as well as regional popularity of the names. Writers of historical fiction and historical romance will find this book to be a handy, well organized resource.

Finally a Celtic baby names book with both pronunciation and background on the names! I am a writer and I found it particularly useful with my writing. Alternate spellings are also given.

When I was pregnant with my first child I searched all over for Celtic/Scottish baby name books. This one took the cake! There are so many names and excellent descriptions of the meanings. I loved reading it. My husband and I found the perfect name for our son in it. I am now pregnant with the second and will definitely use this book to find a name. It is well worth the money.

I did find my daughter's name in this book (although not the spelling I choose to use) but I wouldn't recommend it for finding a boy's name. The girls names had a good selection but I felt for the average person looking for a different but not too weird name, there wasn't much to be found in the boy's section. Overall for the price I would recommend it if you are having a really hard time with names and need a book that can offer something different.
