N saints gods Ok so a lot of these you re not likely to se but it was fun to rea I ve had this book for years and years and years and it s always a good reference when looking for solid names The best baby name book I have read in a long timeIf you re considering a PURCHASE AND WANTING SOMETHING WRITTEN IN THE LAST COUPLE and wanting something written in the last couple years I would steer you towards BEATRICE What perfect timing at a good mid way point in my pregnancy to receive this book Going in we were all set with a boy s name but after the From Beautiful Zion to Red Bird Creek ultrasound it was a girl s name which we discovered we would need This book isite humorous and informative It was on a side table and when my parents came to visit my dad spent a few hours and said he even learned something new After a few months of research here and in my genealogy we found our name Thanks to Workman for providing a copy for review Originally posted A curt collection of seemingly forgotten tread pon and sadly disused names This book contained several of my longtime favorites and tipped me off to some I hadn t Previously Thought Of Or thought of or ve been noticing baby name books tend to take an obvious bias of making fun of names less sed so it was refreshing and I enjoyed reading an author s work that cheered on the choosing of the downtrodden givensWhile definitions are occasionally offered the paragraphs that accompany each name tend to focus on characters and famous folk connected to each This I considered a downside for in a serious name search I am much interested in what the name s etymology is than the fact that this actor sed It For Their ChildI Will However Tip My Hat To for their childI will however tip my hat to niue style the author chose to. Ame Benedict meaning “blessing;” Henry good enough for eight English kings after all it means “home ruler;” Diana the Roman goddess of hunting the allegorical antecedent of the virgin een Elizabeth and alterego of Wonder Woman; or Beatrice an old fashioned beauty with roots in both Dante and Shakespeare Bring Back Beatrice winnows down the niverse of names to 1546 mostly classic examples and it makes a strong case for each featuring the name’s definition its se in history its connotations and subtleties its “meaning” in the fuller sense Included are varia. .

I estion the validity of the entire book #based solely on one entry for rykerthe author #solely on one entry for RykerThe author an example of Ryker as Captain Riker sat in the cockpit of the Starship Enterprise in Star Trek The Next Generation Any generic search engine search would show that the captain was Picard It may be a nitpicky detail but if this is way off base I have to wonder about the rest of the examples in the bookI liked the collection of the girl names but the boy names were pretty lame overall I like the way The Name Entries Are name entries are but the book as a lot of strange omissions There are some entries for spelling variations Katherine and Catherine for example But there s an entry for Claire Katherine and Catherine for example But there s an entry for Claire none for Clara And Carrie Caroline and Carolyn don t have their own entries only Carol does It s true that Clara is discussed in the entry for Claire and Carrie et al are talked about in the entry for Carol etc but those are all very different names and deserve their own entries imho Mildred is missing altogether for some reason It may be a very old and no longer Smitten used much name but it is a name one with a longer history than say Dax which has an entry in the boys section Meh It is a nice wee book with rounded cornersite A White Slave in Turkey Book 1 - A BDSM Novel unusual It does have the number of names advertised with their meanings some names books are simply a list of names with no information about them pointless It is obviously an American book as some of thenusual names are really rather common over here Colin but I ite liked reading a foreigner s perspective on the names we take for grantedAs you read through the book it has boxes so if you liked this what about this eg Statesmen Inca names patro. In a world where too many babies are named Ashley and Jayden and too many baby name books are saccharine pink and blue here comes something singular a book that brings meaning taste character a little bit of attitude and a refreshing lack of trendiness to the art of naming a baby Bring Back Beatrice is a clarion call for parents who know they are naming not just a cuddly newborn but a human being a person who will be proud to carry a name like Iris meaning rainbow after the Greek messenger goddess who connected the heavens to the earth; Bennett the medieval form of the Use I know that our baby Turtle is #now a lil boy stacy and lil john # a lil boy Stacy and Lil John thinking p names right now for this new grandbabe I am hoping for a good strong name My grandson s name is Landon Lyric I love that name The name Landon makes me think of michael landon from bonanza and think of Michael Landon from Bonanza and House on the Prairie fame He made Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, us see a strong moral man who stoodp for his family Lyric denotes music that fills our hearts with joy I see Landon Lyric as his name suggest strong loving #And Full Of Joy I #full of joy I they are thinking of the name Scott Wayne for our lil turtle to be I love the way that sounds Scott with that thought of hearing a burr in the voice as it rolls off the tongue And Wayne makes me think of that John Wayne swagger I can see a grandbabe that will charm you one minute and make you swoon the next I am going to share my new lil yellow book Bring Back Beatrice with them Here they can read about name origins and see the meaning and character of a name That was where I found the information for the names above The best name book I have read so far I loved it and found it very helpful I didn t like how looking at other sources the names were just too bizarre This book has beautiful names and it s meanings I loved reading it I learned so much I didn t know that Cameron means crooked nose so interesting Will definitely purchase a copy of this for my library for my future babies No I m not pregnant I just love reading the meaning of names An interesting resurgence of old fashioned names My son looked through it and couldn t believe how yuck the names were but I enjoyed reading the oldies and where they are derived from Fun not necessarily seriou.
