I am pregnant with baby #3, and am TOTALLY stumped on what to name this little guy. My other boys are named Mylo and Phinean, so obviously we aren't looking to add a "Bob" into the mix. Not that there's anything wrong with Bob, we just need another unique and special name.
The other day after a lull in the baby name conversation my husband said to me, "What are we going to name our baby?!" Then literally 5 minutes later this book Bring Back Beatrice! was in my mailbox. My husband and I have flipped though the pages of our current name book 100 times over, still to no avail. So I'm really excited about this cute yellow book...its sparking my creativity and I just know its gonna help us find the perfect name!
This isn't your typical name book. The title is a nod to all the traditional but underutilized names out there. In addition to traditional names that make excellent choices today, the book includes the most popular picks - with warnings they may be too popular - as well as trendy choices, quirky ideas, and other clever, interesting names. Not only does this book have a list of names with their meanings, it has side notes like "I'd love it if he sounded British", then lists several British sounding names. Or "Fictional Favorites", with names of characters we meet in books.
Bring Back Beatrice! is a fun, fresh way to find the perfect name for your little one. The amusing additions and side notes keep your interest and helps break up the monotony of just a list of names. You can purchase Bring Back Beatrice! by Jennifer Griffin for $10.95 from the Workman Publishing site.
