    Baby Name Books

    What baby name books do you love? I'm putting in a book order in a week and am looking for some interesting books on names. Something other than alphabetical popular names. Also, I'm leaving in the morning for some wilderness adventures, so if I don't respond, don't think I'm rude. I'm just far from technology. Thanks.

    Oh, and Pam and Linda's books are a given of course. I already have them all though.

    Edit: I'd also be interested in books where the names aren't the focal point, but they have great inspiration. Mythology for example. I've lately been interested in Welsh mythological books and found some delicious names!
    Considering...
    Cordelia Eilonwy Snow ● Evadne Undomiel Snow ● Isabeau Jane Sophronia ● Lorelei Nimue Ondine
    Pandora Vivienne Swan ● Thisbe Octavia Wildrose ● Thora Ilythia Swan

    ●●● ●●● ●●●
    Caspian Ithuriel Wilder ● Damian Rainer Sparrow ● Evander Ithuriel Sol
    Gwydion Alaric Hart ● Malachi Tristan Bjorn ● Phineas Robin Blaise ● Theodore Peregrine Llyr

    Bruce Lansky's "Baby Names around the World" is very good. There is also a book he assisted in writing, it has something to do with the first impression of a name, but I forgot the title.

    Edit: Title is The Baby Name Personality Survey, by Bruce Lansky and Barry Sinrod

    I adore "Llewllyn's Complete Book of Names". Admittedly for the Pagan, witchy sort, but it's a good one to have if you love unusual and often historical names.
    I love earthy and bohemian names.

    Luna . Samara . Juniper . Magnolia
    Cedar . Alasdair . Oak . Arlo
