Overview

From the authors of Beyond Jennifer & Jason, "the best baby-naming book ever written" (The News Journal), here is a book to help you find a name for your baby that reflects your Jewish heritage and suits your personal style:

Beyond Sarah & Sam: An Enlightened Guide to Jewish Baby Naming

You want to name your baby after your grandfather Moishe, but it seems as if all the "good" M names-those that appeal to both the Jewish person and the modern parent in you-have been overused. Or you want to give your child a biblical name, but every time you open the Old Testament the only names you see are the usual Sarahs and Adams or the beyond-the-pale Jezebels and Jobabs.

Here, at last, is a comprehensive guide to names that can work for a Jewish baby in America today-from the traditional to the trendy, from the well-worn to the unheard-of, and everything in between. With the insight and panache that have made them the reigning experts on baby names, the authors explore:

Bubba and Zayde Names-Jewish names of yesteryear that are ripe for a comeback, and those in "Lauderdale Limbo" whose fate is undetermined

The Good Book of Names-how to go beyond Sarah and Samuel and Rachel and David, and why not to name your son Cain!

Haifa-Nated Names-Hebrew names that may be popular in modern Israel but are sure to make your little one stand out in America

Plus an explanation of the complex Jewish naming traditions, a list of Jewish celebrities and their real names, and much, much more...

The authors' first baby name book revolutionized the field.

Here's a guide to help you find a name that reflects your heritage and suits your personal style. Features "The Kosher Curve, " fresh-sounding Old Testament names, and good Jewish-Christian compromises.
