9780141019765: The Penguin Pocket Dictionary of Babies' Names

What's in a name? Rather more than you might at first suspect, for names are steeped in history and myth and have much to tell us about our past, our beliefs - even our personality traits. The Penguin Pocket Dictionary of Babies' Names takes a close look at 3500 names, explaining origins and meanings, showing how some have changed in popularity and use over time and providing all the diminutive and variant forms.

Part of Penguin's major new series of reference titles ranging from Spanish and French dictionaries to books on spelling and quotations.
