Reviews - What do customers think about Dictionary of Patron Saints' Names?
All the names are here for your new baby Nov 19, 2002
A very comprehensive book of all the saints names you want to know and choose for your new arrival. You will be able to see the many variations and what they did that made them a great saint worthy of their name.
Tremendous Resource Mar 26, 2002
Are you sick of pouring through the contemporary name books? Then pick up this treasure. Featuring more than 8,000 girls and boys names, the advantage to this resource is that it lists appropriate patron saints for most of the names, along with a very brief biography of such saints, the meaning of the name and includes the feast day for the patron.
For parents desiring to find Christian names for their children, this is an indispensible resource.
In addition to common Germanic, English, French, and Irish/Gaelic names, the book also features many African-American, Native American, and Arabic names as well.
You'll find such common names as Thomas, Anne, Susan, and David, as well as less common names such as Marva, Montana, LaShawna, and Moesha.
Where there is no appropriate patron saint for a given name, the book will examine the history of a name, break it down into parts, or find a patron that relates to the name's meaning so that very few names do not have a patron associated with them.
I recommend this book for any parent deciding on names for their children.
