Post Recommended Book on Names
My friends Linda Rosenkrantz and Pamela Redmond Satran are the collaborative authors of numerous books on the subject of names and naming. I am pleased to announce that they have just released a new book, titled: The Nameberry Guide: Best Baby Names for Girls.

How does this tie in with goth, you may ask? I have listed below 22 names selected from this book which have some connection with tragic events in history, literature, and the arts. But you'll have to get Linda and Pam's book to read the full background on each name!

Our well-read Goth.net members may be expected to know already many of the tragic connections for each of the names listed below -- but I guarantee that there will be some details revealed in this book that will surprise and enlighten!

Andromeda
Aura
Branwen
Camille
Carmen
Cassandra
Desdemona
Diana
Eurydice
Eva
Hester
Isadora
Lucia
Marguerite
Miriam
Opal
Ophelia
Phaedra
Solange
Sybil
Sylvia
Thisbe


The book contains fascinating information on over 600 girls' names specifically chosen by the authors, so you may find some interesting goth selections of your own!
