Description
Sparkling with wit and filled with eye-opening, humorous facts and stories, this exploration of the social history, psychology, and role of names and naming process will delight readers intrigued by the mysteries of identity and the quirks of language.

Publishers note
As delightful and playful as it is profound and serious, "The Language of Names" is an absolute original -- a fascinating book that reveals us to ourselves, that demonstrates the endless variety of ways in which names shape our daily lives. Drawing on social and literary history, psychology and anthropology, anecdotes, and life stories, biographer Justin Kaplan and novelist Anne Bernays have written a fascinating account of names and naming in contemporary society that touches on class structure, ethnic and religious practices, manners, and everyday life.

Graceful, eloquent, and richly informed, "The Language of Names" explores and illuminates our favorite subject -- ourselves.
