Overview

Pick up a celebrity magazine and you'll see that the art of naming babies has reached new heights of self-expression, with recent choices like Shiloh, Sailor, Apple, and notably, Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q. Hewson. Baby namers today want monikers that reflect something personal. Where better to draw inspiration than the books you cherish and the characters you love? A IS FOR ATTICUS mines the classics for the best names and brings them all into one volume. Unlike massive baby name books, which offer endless, dry lists with cursory dictionary definitions, each of the carefully selected names (including Beckett after the Irish playwright Samuel Beckett and Esme from J.D. Salinger's For Esme with Love and Squalor) is fully profiled in a fun, savvy, info-packed listing that includes a name's meaning, uniqueness, modern appeal, and cultural significance. Helpful sidebars guide you to the perfect name for your perfect baby.

    Classic Names for your baby┬┐

    Are you looking for just the right name for your new baby? Perhaps you would like something unusual or something classic? A Is For Atticus is chocked full of classic names. I was surprised that neither my name, nor my husband¿s, nor any of my children¿s names were listed in this book. I suppose I was not imaginative enough. I loved many of the names listed and, of course, hated several. Before naming your baby, take a look at A Is For Atticus you just might find the perfect name.

    Buy it.

    I love this book. The names in this book are different, without being crazy. The author provides interesting, in-depth information about each name. My only complaint is that I wish the author had kept writing. I'd like to have seen a few more names in the book.
