Item description for A Saint for Your Name: Saints for Girls by Albert Nevins & Ann Ball...
Overview With more than two hundred entries, A Saint For Your Name, Revised And Updated makes it easy for parents-to-be who are searching for just the right name for their child. This is the book that can help you find a name that not only sounds right, but one that "fits" right. Here you can find a name your child will be proud to carry for a lifetime. The perfect baby-shower present, A Saint For Your Name, Revised and Updated is also the ideal gift for: * A child receiving First Holy Communion who wants to know more about his name (and about the saint or Biblical figure who shares that name). * A young person preparing for Confirmation (and choosing a special name as part of the celebration). Having the same name as an honored and revered role model can exercise a positive influence on a person's career, self-image, ideals, aspirations. . .indeed on one's entire life. That's why Christians from the earliest days of the Church have taken the name of a saint as a special patron and protector.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Saint for Your Name: Saints for Girls?
pretty good Jan 12, 2007
I like the set-up of this book because it gives a background on the Saints, however some of the names are just strange, and it definitely leaves out a lot of good saints names. I would recommend this book if you have no other resource for Saints names. We would have rather had a book that included more saints.
