Parenting

Love you, Daddy. Miss you so much. Steph. This is the message Matt Mikalatos discovered scribbled on a sky lantern that landed in his yard. A father of three girls, he couldn’t let the note from Steph go unanswered. So he posted on his blog a heartfelt letter to her in response, words of love from a father to a daughter, unaware that this message would go viral and lead him on a journey to find the real Steph. This deeply moving memoir, filled with paternal wisdom, provides a fatherly presence to readers, and shows what it means to be loved.

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.
