The first important decision facing new parents is the naming of their baby. In Judaism, where words are of the utmost importance, a name is a complicated gift- one that bestows identity and a generational connection, and reflects religious and spiritual dimensions as well. Maning begins the process of shaping the person parents hope their child will become. What to Name Your Jewish Baby is an invaluable aid to parents as they make this all-important choice, supplying new parents with nearly 800 biblical, sacred, secular, and modern Hebrew spelling, nick names, and a transliteration of the Hebrew pronunciation.
