The Most Unusual, Noble, and Beautiful Baby Names Book Review:

Upd.6: Over 2000 copies sold. Thank you very much! #1 Pregnancy Books THIRD Edition is out NOW! We added even more beautiful and unique baby names. Hello to all pregnant ladies and expecting dads. My name is Cornelia and I'm the proud mother of two wonderful girls (Serena and Adeline). When I was pregnant, I spent a lot of time searching for unique and beautiful names for girls. And so the idea of this book was born. First of all, I want to say that this book is not just another "list of 1000000+ baby names with 1 word as a description." In this material, I collected only the most unusual, nontrivial, noble, "exotic" and beautiful names, and tried to describe in detail the history of their origin and their meaning. After reading this book, you will be able to choose a truly great and unique name for your child, as well as learn something new from the Bible, Greek myths, legends, sagas, and world history. Have a great time. Couple examples from the book: Eric (AIR-ik) is a male given name derived from the Old Norse Eiríkr (ei (ever, always) + ríkr (ruler)). Scandinavian legend relates that the explorer Leif Ericson (son of Erik the Red, the founder of the first Norse settlement in Greenland and Thjodhild, both of Norwegian origin) landed on the shores of America nearly four centuries years before Christopher Columbus arrived in 1492. Around A.D. 1000, Eriksson sailed to Norway, where King Olaf I converted him to Christianity. According to one school of thought, Eriksson sailed off course on his way back to Greenland and landed on the North American continent, where he explored a region he called Vinland. He may also have sought out Vinland based on stories of an earlier voyage by an Icelandic trader. After spending the winter in Vinland, Leif sailed back to Greenland, and never returned to North American shores. He is generally believed to be the first European to reach the North American continent. This common Norse name was first brought to England by Danish settlers during the Anglo-Saxon period. It was not popular in England in the Middle Ages, but it was revived in the 19th century, in part due to the children's novel "Eric, or Little by Little" (1858) by Frederic William Farrar. Luna (LOO-nah) is a female given name derived from the Latin luna (the moon). She was the Roman mythological goddess of the moon and is equated with the Greek Selene (goddess of the moon; daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia, and sister of the sun-god Helios, and goddess of the dawn, Eos). Closely mapping her Greek incarnation, Luna rode her white chariot across the sky wearing the moon as her crown to illuminate the night as she traveled to be with her mortal husband Endymion. She was an important deity to the Romans since they depended upon the moon for calculating the time (i.e., the lunar calendar). Zion (ZYE-on) is a male given name of Hebrew origin, meaning "highest point." Zion is a biblical term for the "promised land." For Rastafarians it means "heaven on Earth" and it is also widely associated with the drive for a Jewish homeland and with the ideals of the Mormon Church. A zion was a citadel that was in the center of Jerusalem, which explains why it means "highest point." Samsara is a very unique female given name. Saṃsāra is a Sanskrit word for the repetitive cycle of death and rebirth. It encompasses the concept of reincarnation and the fact that what an individual does in their current life will be reflected, through karma, in their future lives. The literal translation of samsara would be "a wandering through." This refers to the way in which everyone passes through a number of lives and states.

The Crown of Silence Book Review:

When Shan was fifteen years old, dark soldiers came out of the west, like a cloud of evil boiling over the soft hills of his homeland. They commanded terrible beasts, which killed with hook claws like scythes and cold eyes that dripped icy fire. The soldiers wore helmets that looked like fiends, tusked and snarling and sneering. The terrible consequences of war have left the boy Shan wounded in body and mind by the invading army of Magravandias. He's taken from his devastated village by the magus Taropat, chosen by the master's mysterious impulse to become the wizard's pupil, and a weapon against the invading empire.

Creating Belonging in San Francisco Chinatown’s Diasporic Community Book Review:

This book presents a much-needed discussion on ethnic identification and morphosyntactic variation in San Francisco Chinatown—a community that has received very little attention in linguistic research. An investigation of original, interactive speech data sheds light on how first- and second-generation Chinese Americans signal (ethnic) identity through morphosyntactic variation in English and on how they co-construct identity discursively. After an introduction to the community’s history, the book provides background information on ethnic varieties in North America. This discussion grounds the present book within existing research and illustrates how studies on ethnic varieties of English have evolved. The book then proceeds with a description of quantitative and qualitative results on linguistic variation and ethnic identity. These analyses show how linguistic variation is only one way of signalling belonging to a community and highlight that Chinese Americans draw on a variety of sources, most notably the heritage language, to construct and negotiate (ethnic) identity. This book will be of particular interest to linguists - particularly academics working in sociolinguistics, language and identity, and language variation - but also to scholars interested in related issues such as migration, discrimination, and ethnicity.
