A Concise Dictionary of First Names by Patrick Hanks

The authors have scanned the birth announcements from Britain, the USA, Canada and Australia as part of their names research. This book reflects the full range of first names, from those used before the Norman Conquest to the latest popular names such as Brittany, Chelsea and Kyle. Unisex names are covered, and so are surnames now popular as first names such as Taylor.
