WIN - Bring Back Beatrice! book




In a world where too many babies are named Ashley and Jayden and too many baby name books are saccharine pink and blue, here comes something singular: a book that brings meaning, taste, character, a little bit of attitude, and a refreshing lack of trendiness to the art of naming a baby. BRING BACK BEATRICE! is the perfect book for new parents and all their friends and families who are looking for a perfect shower gift who have a major gripe with misspelling baby names. The book recognizes that makeshift names are not only a celebrity trend.  BRING BACK BEATRICE! is a baby name book with opinion and substance, a clarion call for parents who know they are naming not just a cuddly newborn, but a human being-a person who will be around to carry a name like Iris, meaning rainbow (after the Greek messenger goddess who connected the heavens to the earth); Bennett, the medieval form of the name Benedict, meaning “blessing;” Henry, good enough for eight English kings-after all, it manes “home ruler;” or Beatrice, an old-fashioned beauty with roots in both Dante and Shakespeare.
 
BRING BACK BEATRICE! winnows down the universe of names to 1,546 mostly classic examples, and it makes a strong case for each, featuring the name’s definition, its use in history, its connotations and subtleties, its “meaning” in the fuller sense. Included are variations, nicknames, and, especially useful for readers, alternatives— names that have the same flavor, but may sound better with a particular last name or family background.

WIN: 24/7 MOMS and Workman Publishing are giving away a Bring Back Beatrice! book.
