Names

January 4, 2007

Cecily Dynes writes in The Age an interesting article about names. She is the author of ‘Baby Names for Australia & New Zealand’ and ‘Best Baby Names for Australia & New Zealand’, both published by HarperCollins. She gives in her text an overview of the history of namegiving.

“Yes, a name is a label, but we realise more and more that it is vital to strive for the right label, which will be carried for many years, one of the many facets of being human.”
