The Catholic Baby Name Book

In celebration of the launch of our next CatholicMom.com book, Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur’s The Catholic Baby Name Book, Ave Maria Press is launching the Catholic Baby Name of the Day Contest on its Facebook page.

Follow along Monday through Thursday for the next two weeks. Each day, we will post two names—one girl’s name and one boy’s name—from The Catholic Baby Name Book. If your name is posted, or you know someone with that name, leave a comment under the post and/or tag your friend with the name on Facebook. You AND your tagged friend will be entered to win a book from our spring 2013 releases.

Winners will be notified Friday, May 24th.

About The Catholic Baby Name Book

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 will discover here a bounty of names that are fun, creative, and Catholic. This new book in the CatholicMom.com 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!).
