Wow, Nameberry. Very rude comment of the name in the description. I know this site is obsessed with names like Persephone, Calliope & Lavender, but some of us appreciate other names, too .
Yes, everyone has their own opinion on names, but Nameberry does NOT need to put their two cents in .
I totally agree. I've taken exception to several descriptions of names on this website. They have obvious biases and are very judgemental.
The description is not rude. People having different opinions from one's own does not constitute rude, not even in this snowflake world. But I know that the high schoolers I teach don't know Liza Minelli or Judy Garland or George Gershwin, so I do think Liza is on the table again.
The description is unnecessarily rude.
I really think Nameberry needs to work on their descriptions. Fix them please. I like this, and in my case Eliza as a nickname would be too close to Eli, my son's name. This is a great alternatives as a diminutive of Eliza.
I like this much better than Eliza.
Huh? I've never even heard of the woman mentioned. I like this name.
