    Gorky has an entry, but it's information is somewhat incorrect. Gorky is no longer a place name in Russia other than by a couple of small towns (the city of Nizhny-Novgorod reverted back to its original name in 1990). Also, Gorky isn't a real surname. It was used as a pseudonym by Maxim Gorky and Arshile Gorky, and no Russian would use it as a first name because it means "bitter".

    I noticed Kamal and Kamaal, but not the Turkish form, Kemal. The name is quite common in Turkey, most famously in Kemal Ataturk, but also made an appearance on Downton Abbey.

    I type this in vain as I don't think the entries will ever be ammended. But perhaps this will show up on a search some day and put someone on the right track:

    I notice 'Rumo' is included on the (small) list of Cornish names, apparently meaning 'red' in Cornish. This is just a rumour Rudh is red in Cornish and I checked my Cornish dictionary as well- no Rumo there. And Mirren too has no place. Tis an Irish name. Merryn is the Cornish one.

    There are, however, many legit Cornish names with a lot of use that aren't included at all

    My aunt did research on our family history and found the name Adrik. I've always liked it, but it's not listed. I've found very little information on it, only that it is a form of Adrian.
