Beautifully presented, this book is a glossary of Celtic names, which are rapidly growing in popularity. It provides the meaning behind each name as well as its cultural origins. Includes a brief history of the Celts, how they came to conquer such large areas of Europe and how they later became concentrated in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Cornwall, Brittany and northern Spain. This book will serve the triple purpose of enabling people to discover the significance of their, and other peoples, Celtic names, aiding parents in choosing appropriate Celtic names for their children and helping to further galvanize Celtic culture and tradition. While most of the book is dedicated to first names, surnames and place names are also covered, with explanations of the connection between names in different Celtic regions. For example, what do the Mac in MacCall and the P in Pryce have in common?
