The incidence of New Zealand parents changing the name of their baby before the child’s second birthday rose by 12 per cent in 2012. Increasingly, parents want to know the meaning behind the name they choose and many are keen to find a name that reflects the child’s ancestry.
In this expanded edition, fully revised and updated with new listings, Baby Names for New Zealanders contains everything that parents will ever need to choose the best name for their cherished baby. New features of the book include popular Maori and Pacific names, and the entire listing has been extended by over 10,000 names. There are more celebrity names and unisex names and the book is perfect for anyone seeking alternative spellings, variations and diminutives of names. There are handy checklists of names organised by ethnic origin and quick reference feature boxes highlight the most popular names chosen for New Zealand babies.
Anne Matthews is a professional writer and editor who has long been interested in naming patterns. She is continually updating her own resource of names and she brings a wealth of experience to this book having produced Baby Names for New Zealanders and Baby Names for Australians for over 15 years.
