About this title


Have you decided on a name yet? Do not take it lightly - it may be the most important and far-reaching decision you can make for your child.
The Right Baby Name systematically uncovers the science behind names. Based on meticulous research on everything from the effects of vowel arrangements to the associations with income and education, this book helps you understand the implications of your choice.

An extensive diagnostic section provides you with practical, actionable advice and includes a guide to quantifying characteristics of names such as uniqueness, fit, and goodwill, and a questionnaire to determine your individual NameType. Aided by the powerful online report services at, this book removes the guesswork from choosing the right name.
Researched and written by Oliver Tavakol, MD, for his first child, The Right Baby Name is both a scientific essay and a practical handbook. The first and only resource of its kind, this book takes you beyond the standard Lists of Baby Names to the right choice for your baby.

About the Author:

Dr. Oliver Tavakol was born into a family of physicians; in fact, for 300-years this tradition has been handed down from father to son. No sur-prise, then, that he too studied medicine, at Germany's top-ranking medical institution, the Ludwig-Maximillians-University in Munich and the Klinikum Grosshadern.
He paid his way through medical school partly with a merit-based scholarship, and partly with the revenues from an IT startup he founded and led during this time. Dr. Tavakol also studied the nature of the world, as well as people and why they act the way they do, and pursued a Master's Degree in philosophy. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Jesuit College for Philosophy in Munich, Germany, with a focus in ontology and epistemology, the branches of philosophy that investigate the nature of being, and the origin and limits of human knowledge, respectively.
Following medical school, he worked 30-hour shifts as a medical intern but soon decided to put his training to use on a broader basis. He joined one of the world s most prestigious and influential management consulting firms, and helped to shape healthcare policy in Germany and to improve hospital efficiency in the US. At the time of this writing, he is a junior partner in the firm s New York office.
Right now, Dr. Tavakol and his wife of 13 years, Bita, are expecting their first child. This, of course, is why this book exists.
