What's in Your First Name?: Our Personal Names, their History and Evolution in Britain
DISCOVER THE HISTORY BEHIND ENGLISH FIRST NAMES AND HOW THEY EVOLVED First names are steeped in history and culture and have much to tell us about our ancestors, their lives and beliefs. Not only can parental choice be influenced by tradition and family but also by fashion. In the 20th century new names have arisen through the media of radio, television and films. WILLIAM LEWIS uncovers the origins and development of first names in Britain. This unique insight takes the reader from the names of ancient Britons in Roman times through to the modern day and the cult of the celebrity. From Aaron to Zoe ‘What’s in your First Name’ discusses the history of over 1,500 names in common use in English, including the very latest names as well as those dating back over 2,000 years. PRAISE FOR WILLIAM LEWIS’S OTHER BOOKS “Wonderful little book” “Scholarly and detailed, but immensely readable” “The book is one of the most comprehensive I’ve read on the subject”
