About The Book

The definitive guide for parents looking to give their daughters unique, beautiful names inspired by legend, mythology, and modern-day heroes.

Parents today are looking for names as unique as their children. And the popularity of fantasy worlds and series, from Harry Potter to Game of Thrones, has added a dash of magic to the naming process. From ancient mythology to modern pop culture, the names for baby girls in this volume are imbued with spiritual, mystical—even otherworldly—history and meaning. Each name taps into its own unique feminine power, conjuring an indomitable spirit who made her name known to the world.

In Epic Baby Names for Girls, journalist Melanie Mannarino offers entries that introduce various namesake magical characters/historical figures, a history of the name itself, and alternate spellings/variations. She also includes interesting tidbits, such as when the name surged in popularity (say, after a movie came out). This book is the must-have guide for any parent looking to give their daughter a strong, heroic name—and the perfect gift for feminist parents-to-be.
