Beyond Jennifer & Jason: The New Enlightened Guide to Naming Your Baby

Front Cover
St. Martin's Press, Mar 15, 1995 - Family & Relationships - 334 pages
Until 1988, nearly all baby-naming books were merely dictionaries: long, dull lists of names with their definitions. But then Beyond Jennifer & Jason-- the first enlightened guide to naming your baby-- was born, to tell parents-to-be what they really want to know: which names are hot, and which names are on their way up or down. Now the book that revolutionized baby naming is fully revised and filled with even more indispensable, up-to-the-minute advice.

Instead of one long alphabetical list, Beyond Jennifer & Jason offers dozens of fully updated lists of names, including:

* America's move from J names to K names
* New naming inspiration from the family tree
* Multicultural options to reflect almost any heritage
* The trend one actress set when she took the advice of the first Beyond Jennifer & Jason

With dozens of fresh, savvy lists of names, Beyond Jennifer & Jason gives parents the truly authoritative word on how to tell the good names from the bad, the classic from the passe, and the intriguingly unusual from the downright weird.

A Selection of the Literary Guild and the Doubleday Book Club.
