Editorial Reviews

Review

?A major study, Hispanic First Names contains several thousand names.... Such a study has been needed for years, moreso now when Spanish (in its several dialects) has become second to English as the most prominent language spoken in the United States. The first language of millions, it is time that studies in the language begin. Definetely, Woods has made an important beginning.... The text is accompanied with a list of abbreviations explanatory and descriptive introduction, a frequency count of Mexican-American baptismal names, a glossary of Spanish and English equivalencies, and a bibliography of all materials. The apparatus of the text is formidable and scholarly.... Finally, the work is germinal, a great contribution to onomastics and, probably as important, to the study of Spanish life and culture in the United States.?-State University College at Potsdam, N.Y.
