The Catholic Baby Name Book

by Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur

With more than ten thousand names of saints and biblical figures, this first-ever guide to Catholic baby names helps expectant parents find a beautiful and creative name for their child. Each entry includes the meaning of the name, language of origin, variations in form, a capsule biography, and relevant feast days and patron saint information.

While it has become increasingly popular to name a baby after a town or a food, readers of The Catholic Baby Name Book will discover a bounty of names that are fun, creative, and Catholic. This new book in the Book series boasts thousands of names of saints from Christian tradition and the scriptures, including those newly canonized by popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI. Among the fun facts to be discovered: there are ten ways to spell Regina, the perennially popular name Jayden means “thankful” and “God has heard,” and Sophia—the most popular girl’s name in 2012—was a saint who had three daughters named Faith, Hope, and Charity (who were also saints!).

The Book of Catholic Baby Names invites your family to consider heroes and heroines of the past who will become a part of your family’s legacy. I hope you enjoy imagining all of the possibilities, adventures, and blessings that await you and your precious baby.”
Lisa M. Hendey, Author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms

“Well researched, delightfully written, and much needed, this is a resource that every Catholic family will use and enjoy together. A classic waiting to happen!”
Sarah A. Reinhard, Author of A Catholic Mother's Companion to Pregnancy
