Forget all the web sites that have you type in a name then tell you what it means. If I had a name to type in, in the first place, I wouldn't need to visit the web site! Web sites & books like that are so thoroughly frustrating. And I think to most people, ancient meanings are irrelevant.
This book makes looking for names FUN! And it was totally right on the money about what feelings certain names evoke. I am a bit perplexed why this book and this method of finding names isn't THE way to go with hundreds of copycat titles.
I enthusiastically recommend this book to anyone having a baby.
