This is much more than a "what should we name our baby" book. The author presents more than 10,000masculine and feminine names as well as personal names and current uses or derivations.
The introduction itself is concerned with the names and their meanings to help the reader use the dictionary to its best possible usage going all the way back to the year 1000 B.C.
It explains where names came from: Old Testament names, Christian names, Nature names, Calendar names, Occupational names, Celebrity names, Unconventional spellings, and Patronymics as well as Matronymics.

not a book to be read straight through (after the introduction) but a great book to skim through ahd learn a lot from.
