This informative and entertaining volume from the editors of Babble.com presents the 500 top names for boys and girls, breaking down each name's meaning, ranking, and historical significance. Best of all, the book offers fascinating top ten lists throughout: the top ten names of billionaires, Beat poets, pirates, and more!
