Book summary: A person' s name conveys a culture, a history, and a way of looking at the world. And as centuries of war, immigration, rulers, and religions have changed a country, they have also changed the names of its people. In the first book of its kind, Teresa Norman traces the history of Europe, from the ancient Roman era to the present, and shows how names originated and changed throughout the ages. Whether you are a history buff, a writer searching for the proper name for your character, or a parent looking for a special name for your child, Names Through the Ages is a rich resource of ideas, stories, and histories behind thousands of names. Includes names from: * England and Scotland' s Dark Ages and Industrial Revolution * The Norman Conquest and Reformation in Wales * Ireland' s clan revolts and Catholic emancipation * The rise and fall of France' s monarchy * American colonization and Civil War Special features include: * alphabetized listings for easy reference * organized by time period and country * advice on alternate spellings* information on origins and meanings * surname definitions * histories of names and countries
