Now this classic bestseller has been updated for the new millennium, with 95% new material, including new chapters, new trends, new naming pitfalls, and more boy and girl names than ever-from traditional to trendy, and everything in-between, plus a comprehensive name index.

Look inside for.... Classic names (Emily, Sarah, Daniel, William) Surname names (Brady, Chandler, Donovan) Place names (India, Nevada, Paris) Unisex names (Cameron, Jordon, Terry) Good girl names (Hope, Chastity) Biblical boy names (Aaron, Noah) So-far-out-they're-in-names (Cloud, August, True, Farmer) So-far-in-they're-out-names (Brittany, Chelsea, Justin, Ryan) Plus: African-American names, Regional names, Star-baby names, Sixty Traditional Names that Transcend Time, and much, much more!
