Babies' Names

Compiled by Dawn Laker / Foreword by Justine Roberts / Introduction by Maryanna Korwitts

Choosing your baby's name is one of the most joyful yet difficult and important tasks faced by parents-to-be. This invaluable guide will come to the aid of even the most stumped. First, read useful tips on what to bear in mind, including surname compatibility, abbreviations, nicknames, initials, naming twins and the psychology of names (how your choice might affect your child's life). You can then browse through the clear and simple A–Z lists of over 3,000 classic and contemporary girls' and boy's names (those that are gender-neutral are pointed out as such), accompanied by brief information on abbreviations, diminutives, origin and meaning. Attractively illustrated with over 200 ultra-cute photographs and with a fresh design, this makes an ideal gift for those expecting.
