Baby Names Book

Choosing a name for the new arrival can be quite a daunting task, especially if the parents can't agree. Many people select family names and that can cause tension amongst the in-laws. A baby names book may help the choice and they make interesting reading, with regard to learning about the meanings and origins of names. For anyone who's having difficulties, spare a thought for couples expecting sextuplets!

To give examples of names and their meanings, the following is a brief selection; Ann signifies grace and is Hebrew in origin, Gloria is Latin for glory, Patricia means noble from the English and Tara means tower originating from the Celtic. Barnard means big bear from the English, Keiran is small and dark and is Celtic, Sebastian means venerable from the Greek and Toby translates, as God is good from old English. A baby names book from different countries will show that names have equivalent versions in several languages e.g. Pablo, a common Spanish name is Paul in English. Sean or Shaun is a Celtic version of John.

Some parents choose a name for sentimental reasons, perhaps from the place of conception. That's fine if you are Brooklyn Beckham, son of David and Victoria Beckham. It's not so good if you were conceived in Little Rock, Arkansas! Unusual names can be a burden for some kids but they may appreciate it more when they reach teenage years and yearn for individuality.

Celebrities are well known for going against the norm. Some famous parents have certainly not consulted a baby names book. Their quest for something different has led to some bizarre choices. Nicholas Cage decided to call his son by the Krypton name of Superman, Kal-El. He'll get a shock if junior starts flying around. Cher and Sonny Bono named their daughter Chastity, (no pressure) and David Bowie thought that his son would revel in being called Zowie Bowie. The most out there of baby names has to be the choices of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates. Their daughters were named Fifi-Trixibelle, Peaches Honeyblossom and Pixie. Not ideal names for a tough schoolyard.

Popular names change over the years and different ones go in and out of favor. It's interesting to compare a baby names book from today and from many years ago. The most popular boy names in America in 2005 were Jacob, Michael, Joshua and Matthew. Compare that list with the 1880s and we have John, William, Charles and George. As for the girls, 2005 lists Emily, Emma, Madison and Abigail. The 1880s shows Mary, Anna, Elizabeth and Margaret. It's clear that biblical names are holding their own in this age of obsessions with celebrity.

 

Baby Name

I never thought that picking out baby boy names for my son would be so hard. I have a perfectly average name, and I figured that my son could have the same. After all, being named David hasn't held me back in life. Nonetheless, once my wife and I started talking about baby boy popular names, it became clear that we were going to have a harder time picking one out than we had thought. Usually, we agree with each other, but once we started trying to choose baby boy names, it became clear that we had little or no common ground. I wanted to name him Bill or Jim. She wanted to name him Duke or George. I hated her names, and she thought mine were boring.

Finally, in desperation, we consulted a source of baby boy names online. Doing a baby boy name search is easier than you might think. It is really amazing how many people put good quality free information on the Internet for nothing. Nonetheless, soon we got some sick of pouring through pages and pages of websites. We went out to the store and got a baby naming book, and started to look through. It was one of those ones that tells you the meaning of the name, where it comes from, and some of the people who have had that name. All in all, it was a very useful book, and it gave us both a lot of different ideas.

You might think that that was the end of it. You might assume that we are reasonable people and that, once we had a good source of baby boy names, we would find something to compromise on. If you believe that, however, you are wrong. The baby boy name search got, if anything, more antagonistic after that. We each had dozens of baby boy names that we liked, but the other one hated. To me, it seemed like she was being stubborn and unreasonable. To her, I seemed the same way. The only way we finally resolved it was decided to wait until the baby was born. We figures that, once he was born, we would give him a good looking over and see what name seemed to fit him. After all, for all we knew picking a name ahead of time was a big mistake. What if the baby did not look like it at all?
