What's a "stripper" name? For that matter, what's a high-class name? How do you tell the difference? Why does everyone call them "baby" names when they follow us through our whole lives? And can your name determine your destiny?

From a television screenwriter and contributor on the LaineyGossip.com blog comes a book about what names really mean, how we use them, and why they matter.

A child of Irish and Egyptian immigrants to Canada, Duana Taha became fascinated by names, not least because hers felt awkward at best and impossible at worst. She believed that names explained not only who you were, but where you came from and who you could be. She became a name nerd, and later a name snob, before settling into the role she was born to play-a Name Therapist, giving straight talk baby-and-grown-up-name advice to just about everyone.
In a romp through North American naming trends, traditions, and pop culture, Duana brings us the hilarious, insightful, and surprising truths about hipster names in Brooklyn and Malibu, and the most "intelligent" names at Harvard University; digs into the stereotypes about culture and class where names are concerned; and heads backstage to find out the stories behind those supposed stripper names. And if you don't know what a Starbucks name is, Duana points out why you obviously never needed one.

The Name Therapist's explorations will help you understand your feelings about your own name, whether it's one you share with millions (hi, Jennifer!), or one you grew up waiting in vain for the Romper Room host to say. Would you, by any other name, still be you?
