In three months, my cousin will be having a baby. She wants to have a very distinct name for the little angel. To help her out, bought this book and lend it to her. To her delight and excitement, she really spent time listening to it all. Now her problem is which is best name that will suit her baby. Almost every name is great!
I must say that this is indeed as very interesting book containing intriguing information about naming of human beings. I was aware of the reasons of naming in the western world but found it amazing that there are cultures where a child has to take the name of his father in addition to being given a unique name as his identity. I also loved the fact that in some African societies, it is the prerogative of paternal grandparents to name the child.
This helped my husband and I put our naming intentions in perspective. I appreciated the author's honesty! Well written. I enjoyed this book.
