What will people thing about your baby's name? "The Baby Name Survey Book," previously titled "The Baby Name Personality Survey," is not just a baby name book -- it is a reflection of how popular culture affects the perception of popular names. This is the fist name book to provide information on what people think about names. With the information in this book, parents can pick a name for their child with positive connotations, and avoid names that might subject their child to teasing. A total of over 100,000 parents were surveyed to determine the most common images people hold about the most popular names for babies. For this new edition, over 300 new names were added to the original 1,400 names, and many of the names were updated to reflect the most up-to-date information about the names you're considering for your baby, including: The new image of names associated with celebrities, such as Newt, Colin, Denzel, Selena, Winona, and Mariah; The image of trendy names such as Taylor, Cody, Sierra, Dakota, Caitlin, and Jasmine; The image of newly popular ethnic and international names, such as Keisha, Latanya, Jamila, Asia, Rasheed, Alejandro, and Andre.

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.
