Offers primarily American readers two types of reference. The lists and meanings of given names could be used to find a name for a baby; the list of surnames can enlighten people on meanings and geographical origins. The arrangement is first by country, then in the case of given names by gender. Names and traits of deities are also listed. The treatment is not scholarly rigorous, but anyone who can tell has deeper resources to consult. Conway provides excellent pronunciation guides for names that sound different than their spelling would indicate to English speakers. She does not include an index.
