Thank you for that! My brain is pretty fried today.
I also made a thread in "All About Nameberry" for us to post names with descriptions that rub us the wrong way. Please add to it as you find more.

While we're on the topic of name descriptions, I have an issue with Arthur being listed as a girl's name on this website. I also have an issue with this list: http://nameberry.com/list/247/Geezer-Names-for-Girls
It seems like any name that Pam or Linda perceive as dated or soft is suddenly "charming" on a girl. Call me crazy, but I wouldn't exactly call Randolph, Seymour, or Vernon "charming" on a girl.
The description for Arthur (girl) is this: "One of the old-school masculine names some very adventurous parents are adopting for girls."
I thought that was an interesting claim. I just checked the SSA lists from 2001-2011, and not surprisingly Arthur never shows up on the girls' list. If there were any unfortunate girls named Arthur in that ten-year span, there are less than 40. Definitely not enough to warrant Arthur being listed as a girl's name.
ETA: I posted this before I saw that east93 made a thread. I'll move this post to there.
