Description
You stayed up until 2 A.M. reading Jane Eyre. You woke up at 4 A.M. to watch the Royal Wedding. And you waited with baited breath to hear the names of Britain's newborn princes and princesses. But instead of wondering how the royal family could have chosen such eccentric names as Henry or Beatrice or even Eugenie, you wondered where you could find more of them. Beyond Charles & Diana is where you can find a whole empire of British names-- from universal to uniquely English, from royal to lower class, and everything in between. With the same wisdom and wit that made Beyond Jennifer & Jason the reigning authority on baby names, and with inside knowledge-- one author lives in London and the other is married to an Englishman-- this book tells you everything you need to know about British names: * The Brit Hit Parade-- what's hot in England these days and what's not, and what's in London Limbo * Class Consciousness-- the more names, the better (but Elizabeth Krystle Kayla Debbie doesn't quite make it!), and which names are "U" (Henrietta is; Heather isn't) * Literary Lights-- from Shakespeare, the Bard of Naming, to Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, to the modern Waugh, Wodehouse, and Pym Plus royal names from the reign of the Saxons to the present, Scottish names and Welsh names, and much, much more....
