LOOKING FOR A NAME THAT MEANS SOMETHING SPECIAL TO YOU?

Given the dizzying array of choices available, picking the right name for your baby can be daunting. Why waste hours looking through one long alphabetical list of names just to burn out even before you've run through A, B, and C? In this creative twist on the traditional name book, Baby Names Made Easy offers selections organized into categories of meaning, making it easier than ever to choose a name that is significant to you.

Traditional or trendy, American in origin or from all over the globe, the names here cover an array of topics. For example, look under:

Animals & Insects (and find "Naia" -- Hawaiian for "dolphin")

Victory (and find "Vincent" -- Latin for "conquerer")

Love & Affection (and find "Mia" -- Italian for "mine")

Religion & Faith (and find "Dev" -- Sanskrit for "God")

The book's handy alphabetical index makes cross-referencing easy, so you can find the perfect name in no time. Baby Names Made Easy is a practical and one-of-a-kind reference for anyone searching for the most important gift they can give their child.
