A fun way to look at Baby names... In the first section of the book you can look up names by the type of first impressions that name is commonly known for displaying...artistic, controlling, sweet, etc...
Or you can look at names alphabetically as in any other Baby name book. It gives the origin of the name and what the name means...But, then this book also gives a common image of what an average person thinks of when they think of that specific name.
Then listed are Famous or noteworthy people with that name.

For example: The name HEATHER: (Middle English) "flowering heather"
Image: People say Heather is a very sweet blonde who is care free, outgoing and fun but not very bright.
Famous Heathers: actresses Heather (Melrose Place) Locklear, Heather (The Fall Guy) Thomas, Heather (Poltergeist) O'Rourke; the movie Heathers
