Quoted everywhere from Parenting to The Wall Street Journal , with more than a million copies of their books in print, bestselling authors Linda Rosenkrantz and Pamela Redmond Satran are the baby-name experts. In this fresh and expanded new edition of "the best baby-naming book ever written" ( The News Journal ), they offer irresistible lists of names you won't find anywhere else, along with their trademark wit and insight on the most important questions---and answers---for expectant parents:

Style: What's hot and what's cool---including Honest Names, Spiritual Names, Kreeatif Names, The Two-Syllable Solution, Word Names, The Exotics, and a Girl Named Boy

Popularity: The most popular names in America and around the world, and what
celebrities are naming their babies

Image: What's really in a name, and why Briyana spells trouble

Sex: What's it like for a girl to grow up with a traditionally feminine name like Abigail or Blossom; a no-frills name like Alice or Jane; or a unisex name like Dylan or Dakota? And are there any decidedly masculine names left for boys?

Tradition: A concise history of American baby naming, plus inspired ways to reflect your own cultural heritage

Family: Whose name is it, anyway? And other vital considerations
