Neala Shane became interested in religious studies and began researching the meanings behind names, collecting quotations from various sources. She eventually turned this curiosity into a full-time pursuit, collecting the names and writing this book. She has a website that allows seekers to learn more about their own names, and explore options for naming their children: www.bestbabynamesfortoday.com
