What will people thing about your baby's name? "The Baby Name Survey Book," previously titled "The Baby Name Personality Survey," is not just a baby name book -- it is a reflection of how popular culture affects the perception of popular names. This is the fist name book to provide information on what people think about names. With the information in this book, parents can pick a name for their child with positive connotations, and avoid names that might subject their child to teasing. A total of over 100,000 parents were surveyed to determine the most common images people hold about the most popular names for babies. For this new edition, over 300 new names were added to the original 1,400 names, and many of the names were updated to reflect the most up-to-date information about the names you're considering for your baby, including: The new image of names associated with celebrities, such as Newt, Colin, Denzel, Selena, Winona, and Mariah; The image of trendy names such as Taylor, Cody, Sierra, Dakota, Caitlin, and Jasmine; The image of newly popular ethnic and international names, such as Keisha, Latanya, Jamila, Asia, Rasheed, Alejandro, and Andre.

Compiled by Patrick Hanks, one of the world's leading authorities on names and naming, this new edition of An A-Z of Baby Names (previously Babies' Names) provides all the help you'll need to find the right name for your newborn. Here are over 2,500 names in common use in the English-speaking world--ranging from traditional names from Katherine and Michael to Jane and William, to more recent coinages such as Bryn or Chelsea. Readers will find inspiration from plants ("Azalea," "Olive"), from precious stones ("Amber," "Ruby"), from mythological gods and goddesses ("Irene," "Iris"), from the Bible ("Aaron," "Adam," "Miriam," "Naomi"), and much more. Each entry includes the origins and history of the name and, when possible, notable bearers of the name in life and in literature. The book is also filled with curious facts and interesting tales. We learn that "Casey" comes from folk hero Casey Jones, who acquired the nickname from his birthplace, Cayce, Kentucky. "Brock" was originally a nickname for someone resembling a badger. And "Rose" probably doesn't derive from the flower, but from Germanic words for either "horse" (Hros) or "fame" (hrod). This reissue includes essential updates as well as a helpful article on how to find the right name or to create your own. In addition, an appendix includes thematic indexes for many name categories such as Biblical names, names from television and films, names from literature and popular culture, pet forms and nicknames, as well as a list of the most popular names by year and by region.
