The kind of reference guide that sidetracks researchers in the library stacks and can be an invaluable aid to fiction writers searching for just the right nomenclature for a Turkish character. The volume lists contemporary and historical names from almost every world culture and country, including each group's specific naming rules (the family name is put first in Japan, Korea, and Hungary) and a pronunciation guide. The breezy essays beginning each section are snippets of historical information and cultural tidbits. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
