A great book about Hebrew names only: Le Livre des prénoms bibliques et hébraïques, by Rabbi Marc Alain Ouaknin and Dory Rotnemer.


One fun anecdote, khanu (khah-noo), the female form of Khan, is a term of endearment for Sephardic Jews. My great grandmother from Saloniki (originally from Spain) called my mom like this. :)
