'Must-have' reference for fiction writers,
This review is from: Baby Names Made Easy: The Complete Reverse-Dictionary of Baby Names (Paperback)
`Baby Names Made Easy' is truly a unique approach to the traditional baby name book. As an aspiring writer, I found this book's organization to be extremely useful. Names are grouped into categories according to their meaning instead of in long alphabetized lists. If I want to find male names with animal meanings or those denoting strength, for instance, I have simply to flip to the relevant chapters.
Also, if you just want to look up a name there is an index, divided into both male and female names, at the back of the book. I see this book becoming a `must-have' reference for fiction writers searching for meaningful names for their characters and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
