"Brilliant Baby Names is just that - a book filled with advice on how to choose the best name for your child ... It's a must."

I'm Pregnant Magazine

 

Choosing a name for your child is both exciting and, for some of us, slightly daunting.  Do you go for something traditional, or something modern? A name with a special meaning, or one that you simply like the sound of? And how do you make sure the name you choose will be loved by your child as much as by you?

Brilliant Baby Names provides all the answers. With over 14,000 names to choose from, both ancient and modern, traditional and global, there’s all the inspiration you could need to get you started.

And to make sure that you pick a name that both you and your child love for life, the book offers:

  • top tips on what to consider when choosing a name
  • advice on the common pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • a fascinating insight into the psychology of names, and how different choices might affect your child’s future happiness and success
  •  meaning and origin of all 14,000+ names listed
  • inspiration from books, film and music
  • a quick rundown on the legal side of naming your baby.
