What’s in a Name?

Have you ever thought about what, exactly, is in a name? Each chapter in this book ponders that question, whether directly or indirectly. There are no easy answers. It is at best a mystery. However, if you really look into that set of words assigned to you at birth, you may find traces of biography, genealogy, history, the immigrant experience, and more. Copies available to checkout from the library collection
