    the scotland in my dreams.
    The description for "Sigrid" makes me sad. I love that name personally; it's like a less common Ingrid or Astrid, and I don't quite understand why it's just written off like that. But I guess we're all entitled to our own opinions.

    I've also noticed what seems like a slight grudge against German names? I don't think anything malicious was meant by it, but descriptions for names like Heidi and Liesl and Helmut -- it seems like they're often just written off as "old world" or clunky or whatever, whereas if the names are Scandinavian or French, they're usually fine. This is something I noticed in the books years and years ago, as one side of my family is German.

    But keep doing what you're doing, Nameberry! I'm glad you fixed the more homophobic-leaning comments, and you do a really good job updating and trying to make this the best community possible for everyone.
