Place Names: Their Origin and Meanings
Martin Ettlinger, editor (anthology)
This easy-to-read non-fiction will appeal to anyone interested in history, geography, or language. It is unique in that it gives you, not only the origin of the place-name, but additional information that would be of interest to travelers. There are 1100 entries, many of which have more than one possibility for the meaning of the name. Many have wondered how nations, states, cities and physical features on the map have gotten their names. This book has the answers.
Reviews
Robert M. Kern

This book, written by a professional family researcher, is the kind of book that anyone-whether they are "into" history, local geography, or just plain trivia, will find hard to put down! And it doesn't need to be read cover-to-cover, it can be browsed through at random. After all, it has 1100 entries, and they don't need to be read from beginning to end. It therefore can be picked up, and then put down, at the reader's discretion. I highly recommend it for, well, just about anyone who likes to read.
