What's in name

Worldcat Identities provides summary information about every name indexed in Worldcat (authors, people, groups, etc.). Look up the name of someone, and you'll see a list of works written by and about him/her/them/it, as well as information about what other names are associated with them, how their names are translated into othe languages, and all the subject headings associated with them. It's fascinating in a way.

Some examples:

Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln (Spirit)
Madeleine L'Engle
