This is more than your average baby name book: unlike the dozens of mass-market paperbacks available, Town & Country Baby Names has the style and elegance to make an exquisite gift. Stunningly designed and produced, with charming line drawings throughout, it's a lovely and useful resource at an excellent price. The introduction provides guidelines to consider when naming a baby, from researching the family tree for names to knowing the pitfalls of choosing a unisex or trendy name. Each entry includes the name's origin and meaning (Claire comes from Latin, and means "clear and bright"; Stephen, from the Greek, means "crown"), and special features suggest possibilities such as Favorite Names from the Garden and Beloved Names from Children's Literature.
