In general, I feel better about the info if some etymological information is provided--not just a "meaning," but an original form of the name and perhaps a brief discussion of its history. Also, sometimes, it's possible to do a kind of primitive cross-checking online. If a site or book claims that Gina is Japanese for "silver," you can go to an online Japanese-English dictionary, plug in Gina (or silver), and see what comes up. Of course this doesn't always work, because many names are not dictionary words or have changed over time, but it can be helpful.
