Baby Name Wizard 3: What Names Would You Like to See?
I'm delighted to say that I've just started work on the third edition of The Baby Name Wizard book. I truly mean delighted. Working on the book makes me ridiculously happy -- especially this time around, because I'm bursting with new names and ideas that have been piling up in my brain since I finished the last edition.
I'll be reviewing, revising and updating every bit of the book, and expanding it significantly. (For those of you who may recall the great ISBN confusion with BNW 2: yes, this will be a full new edition with its own Amazon identity!) I have a ton of ideas for brand-new features and improvements. And, of course, I'm adding more names. Lots of names.
I already have a list of almost 100 new names that deserve full entries this time around. It's amazing how fast that can happen. In 2008, when I submitted the last manuscript, a name like Bristol was barely a blip on the landscape.
I'd love to hear your suggestions for more names that deserve fuller treatement. Are there names you keep looking up in the book, in vain? Name variants that have established distinct identities from their "parents"? Perhaps names that you're just starting to hear friends discuss, that could be up-and-coming? Nominations, please!
