What's in a Name?

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Whether it's passed down generation to generation or invented on the spot, a name is so much more than a few letters strung together. Since she grew up with a Gaelic first name, author and TV screenwriter Duana Taha understands the importance of names. In her new book, "The Name Therapist," she delves into the culture and meaning behind names. The Agenda in the Summer welcomes Taha to explore how people view and assign value to names, as well as naming trends in popular culture.
