    Do we have anywhere to comment on entries that we think are wrong?

    I note that Miley is listed as a modern invented name and it most certainly isn't.

    It's an old British surname (probably a form of Miles). It was the maiden name of one of my British ancestors, and when I searched on the UK Ancestry site to see if Miley had ever been used as a first, I discovered it had and more than you probably think. I found boys and girls named Miley as far back as the early 1800s.

    Definitely not a new name!

    Whitman is listed as a girl's name... why? It's a surname, so I guess it could be unisex, but the meaning is "white man", it ends in "man", and the most famous namesake is a man (Walt Whitman). There is no entry for Whitman as a boy's name (which one would more intuitively assume it is). You even wrote "Whitman, a namesake surname for poet Walt, would be much more suited to a boy, probably because of that "man" part. It might be preferable to revive the retired Whitney." So obviously it should be listed in the boys' section, too. Teila, a female English name meaning 'duck' or 'blue-green' is also not in the database.

    And I guess it's not technically a baby name, but I always thought if I had a son I'd want to name him after my home state, Kentucky, which isn't in the database. If Tennessee and Alabama are usable, why not Kentucky?

    I think Vanderlyle is a completely made up name by Matt Berninger, the frontman of the band The National, but it just sounds awesome. There's Vander, and there's Lyle, so maybe it could be a variation for them.

    Adua is an old-school iItalian name, used especially when we used to conquer other places. I also heard Olanda, but the entry is bare. I believe that it's basically a misspell for Iolanda, but it is also the translation of Holland in Italian. Another Italian oldie is indeed Isolina, which is not featured as sraexx suggested.

    I haven't had a chance to read all 60 pages of this, so maybe it has already been mentioned, but Olivet is not merely a variant of Olive/Olivia. It is a biblical place-name from the Gospels.
