Betty Kirkpatrick From Aidan, Catriona and Cameron to Erin, Hamish, Laclan and Walter, Scottish Baby Names covers names which are Scottish in origin and names which are, or have been, particularly common in Scotland, offering brief information on the origin and meaning of each.
Over the centuries names in Scotland have been much influenced by immigrants, from the Vikings in the north, to the Norman French who came into Scotland from England after the Norman Conquest, and the Irish who came, especially during the mid-nineteenth century as a result of the potato famine.
Scottish Baby Names gives a valuable insight into the naming process in Scotland, both ancient and modern. The Scots method of naming children has changed greatly in recent years. Few families still adhere to the old system of naming offspring after family members. Recent trends show the influence of celebrities, the resurgence in popularity of what were considered old-fashioned names, as well as Old Testament names and Celtic names in general.
Scottish Baby Names is a valuable source of information for Scots in Scotland, for the many people of Scots heritage who live elsewhere but are interested in their roots, and for all those who are interested in things Scottish.
Betty Kirkpatrick An idiom is a phrase whose wording is either wholly or partly fixed and which cannot be understood simply from taking the literal meanings of the individual words which make up the phrase. Thus, idiomatically, if you kill two birds with one stone it does not mean that you are going around murdering birds, but that you are achieving two aims with one action.
This book features many well-known and used idioms in the English language today, from the acid test and a chip off the old block, through sing from the same hymn sheet to zero hour.
Arranged in dictionary format, the idioms featured here are all given clear explanations and are accompanied by example sentences to show how they are used. Also included are the origins of some of the idioms and readers are likely to find many of these unusual and fascinating.
As well as being a source of useful information and language help, this book is fun to browse through.
