A bit disappointing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Penguin Dictionary of First Names (Penguin Reference) (Paperback)
I was looking forward to receiving this book after reading the reviews, but I am a bit disappointed with it. It seems to have lots of information on different names, but some I have checked don't have the meaning of the name.
For me the meaning of the name is important. I'm not that bothered about knowing its foreign equivalents. Also it includes foreign names, so there is a lot of irrelevant material if you are just looking for British names.
I wish now I had gone for something a little less comprehensive.
