I found this book to be the best, most complete book of names for an English-speaking parent-to-be of Jewish heritage. Everything is included: English/Anglo-Saxon/American (even some Spanish and French), and of course, Yiddish, Biblical/Talmudic, and Israeli names.

The best thing about this book was something that I saw in no other book. One of the ways we were looking at to name our child was to find words (or the meaning of the names for those we were naming for) and finding the hebrew word that meant that. This is the only book with a dictionary in the back of words (i.e., if you look up song, you will find Shira, if you look up Strong, you will find Ethan). So it was helpful when we were looking at naming in that way. There are so many names in here, it is great - not all of them are Jewish, per se, but all names seem to be in the book. It was extremely helpful in naming our child!

I started my business, [...], eleven years ago. This book has been, my "bible" since the beginning, augmented by a number of his other books esp. "The New Name Dictionary - Modern English and Hebrew Names." Kolatch is a consummate researcher of both the names and the biblical references. I trust his translations completely. All of his books are of this caliber. This man has my utmost respect. Sarahleah Hankes
