Wondering What to Name Your Baby?

images.jpg   I’m fascinated by the trendy names being given to babies these days. Where have Mary, Steve, Linda, Barbara, Jim, Judy and Roger gone? I have a book titled Remarkable Names of Real People, compiled by John Train. If more traditional names don’t appeal to you and you’re tired of all the Coopers and Mackenzies, this book might provide inspiration.
