A great gift! Having looked at a number of well-thumbed baby name books in local bookshops (3000 names, 5000 names, 10,000 names - please stop!!) I chanced upon this book. It is beautifully produced and gives great ideas on choosing names from a variety of methods. A great looking book that would make a wonderful gift with simple touches like a piece of blue and pink ribbon that can be used as a bookmarks for your favourite names.

There are thousands and thousands of names listed, and each name is given with it's meanings (Colin, for example is from the "Celtic, strong and victorious" (p 160). Alternative spellings are noted.
There is also an interesting listing of all the different popular names, starting with 1880 right up through the year 2000. It also includes a section on names from other countries--a popular Chinese boy name is "Ho" and another is "Manchu". And what about combining names, what works? There's a section to help you with that, too.
