Thanks God, the names can't be submitted directly by users because that assure the accuracy of the etymology, the meaning, the spelling of the name and any information. A huge part of the user-submitted informations and names in other websites are wrong because most of the people have not any knowledge of onomastics and don't use reliable sources.

For example, in the list of user-submitted names here, there is the name Nallely, which is a misspelling of Nayeli; or the name Aitana, labelled as Spanish and Portuguese (not, it is not Portuguese at all) meaning "glory" (no, it does not) or coming from the Basque (not, it does not).

You always can submit a name and it will be reviewed:
