2.0 von 5 Sternen Kind of Disappointed
This book was alright. It didn't have as many names as I had anticipated. I have other Irish Name books that put this one to shame. Collin Gems is the best book by far!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great for reading and reference, 10. Juni 2003
Rezension bezieht sich auf: O'Baby (Taschenbuch)
This charming name book will assist parents in choosing the appropriate Celtic name for their baby as it provides an extensive list of evocative Irish names. But why an Irish name? For some reason, this musical language and the magical legends of Ireland have become very popular in the Anglo-Saxon world and further afield. The introduction discusses trends in the giving of names and mentions the most popular current Irish names. The chapter Little Dark One provides a cursory history of the settling of Ireland by the Celts and then lists and explains suitable names for dark haired people, such as Darcy, Douglas and Duane. In the chapter The Fairest Of Them All mentions the Tuatha De Danaan and a discussion of names like Barry, Finbar, Kelly, etc. Red haired people are treated in the next chapters, where some of the more common names are Rory and Rowan, whilst the next chapter deals with names deriving from the root words for light or brightness; these include Aidan and Keegan. A Celtic Menagerie provides names that are connected with animal names or qualities: here you will find Colm, Conan, Conor, Oscar and Ronan. In the chapter titled The Green Isle, names derived from plants are given, including Darren and Tyrone. Warrior names in the next chapter include Casey, Fergal and Kane. Wednesday's Child provides names for less worthy traits, like Doran, Etain and Kennedy. Banshee names include Bevin, Cliona and Una, while names invented by authors include Fiona, Gulliver, Imogen and Vanessa. The next chapter discusses and lists the retranslation back into Irish, of popular Anglophonic names and also provides a list of Irish names with their English translations. The A - Z index lists all the names and their meanings/histories alphabetically and is followed by a calendar of saints' feast days. This interesting read and valuable reference work concludes with a thorough index.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very recommendable!!, 16. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: O'Baby (Taschenbuch)
We found this book very helpful, as it does not only provide a good number of names but also gives information about pronunciation and background. Well - actually, to be quite honest - we used it to find an appropiate name for our puppie, an Irish Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier.

A rich and resourceful guide. I learned so much about Irish history too. When Caitlin grows up I'll pass along this book to her.
