1,107 Baby Names That Stand the Test of Time, by Jennifer Griffin

Here’s a fun, fat little book. With or without a baby, you can use it to learn what all your friends’ names mean and gain a new perspective on the importance of a name (Shakespeare notwithstanding). In the introduction, Griffin first discusses the variety of factors that impact name choice, from sound and sense to contemporary fads—including why you would want to stick with time-tested names. The short descriptions of the thousand names give not only literal linguistic origin but also the nuances of meaning that have come to be associated with each name.
