Names have power! A child’s name—and the source of that name—can have a profound effect on their character and future. Use this book to pick a name that expresses the lasting qualities valued by your family—qualities like integrity, creativity, courage, innovation, compassion and patriotism. Gathered from the pages of our history books and rooted in the nation’s heartland, the names in this book are appealing and timeless. They are the names of real-life American poets and soldiers, artists and pioneers, entrepreneurs, teachers and athletes; people whose professions ranged from venerable statesmen like William Jennings Bryan to lighthouse keepers like Barbara Mabrity. Distinctive and prestigious, these names can give your child an instant, natural role model—the heroes and positive idols who have had that name before. The entries in this magnificent baby name book include: • Wonderful classic names and moving descriptions of the heroic Americans who bore them • References to writings by and about each namesake that families can enjoy together • Historic sites related to each heirloom name suitable for family field trips • Famous names in all ethnic groups • The greatest names in medicine, law, statecraft, sports, business, philanthropy, exploration, invention, and more!
