For parents who are overwhelmed by the many possibilities for naming a baby, From Aaron to Zoe offers a series of cross-referencing browsers and a handful of helpful worksheets. Daniel Avram Richman's introductory sections cover meaning, ethnicity, name popularity by time period and occupation, and are backed up by an extensive section including definitions that reflect and correspond to the earlier categories. (Bob, for instance, is from the English, means "fame bright," and is less popular now than a century ago.) With all this information and 15,000 diverse names, it's nice that the book contains worksheets at the end to help parents trace the family-name tree, pick and match their favorites in every category, and keep track of the history of each possible name.
