Whitepages names used racial slur for the meaning of my surname
Can you imagine someone search for your phone number and having a derogatory racial slur posted as the meaning of your name ?It happened to me.
Whitepages names used racial slur for the meaning of my surname Izzo, saying it was a nickname from Sicilian izzu ‘slv..’ or directly from Latin aegyptius ‘Egyptian’, or from the same word in the sense ‘dark-skinned’. That isn't true very few Izzos live in Sicily, most live in Naples. The posted meaning is offensive and derogatory, there isn't a Sicilian word izzu, it's an Arabic name and means honor as in Mu izzu - the honorer. but that isn't the meaning of my surname.
Izzo is a varaition f either Ezzo, Rizzo or Obizzo.I asked them to remove the offensive and untrue meaning for the surname IZZO from the Whitepages name meaning section and nothing was done.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
Preferred solution: Whitpages names remove the racial slur meaning for the surname Izzo.
I didn't like: Names meanings posted.
