Original Publication Date: February 01, 1992

This reference for writers provides meanings for some 25,000 names and surnames from 45 countries, listed by origin. An explanation of naming practices and historical context is provided for each origin section, and there is a reverse look-up of names by meaning, as well as an alphabetical index of names. An introduction gives practical advice on naming characters and places plus tips on naming for specific genres, and sidebars within the entry sections tell how published authors solved their naming dilemmas. Kenyon (whose name means Blond from the White Meadow) is a fantasy author. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
